Jay Leno has announced that he will be returning to stand-up as soon as this weekend despite having just been released from the Grossman Burn Center following a 10-day stay. The former host of "The Tonight Show" entered the facility after sustaining second and possible third-degree burns to his face, hands, and chest in a fire that broke out in his Burbank, California, garage while working on a vintage car. TMZ reported at the time that the 71-year-old car enthusiast had been fixing a clogged fuel line on his 1907 White Steam Car when Gasoline sprayed on his face and hands, then, almost simultaneously, a spark triggered an explosion, setting Leno on fire.
