“Just get 5 minutes that kills everywhere — you don’t have that you don’t have anything. All these comedians say, ‘I’ve got 2 hours.’ Who wants to hear two hours of material!? Just get 5 minutes that kills everywhere. You only need 20 minutes in LA to become a star.”
This was Leno’s advice to Rob when Rob was getting started in comedy. Everyone who saw him then says Jay was the best. We all know now he’s also a smart businessman.
