Famed comedian Jay Leno recounted anecdotes on Friday from his recent trip to Israel in a guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Leno, appearing as a guest on the show he once hosted, told Fallon that he was offered dates when he asked for a drink backstage before appearing at the first annual Genesis Prize ceremony in May.

Leno, who hosted the event, presented the award to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

“They speak English, obviously, but it’s different,” Leno told Fallon. When he asked for a Coke with ice, Leno said, his host replied, “Coke? With ice? No, we don’t have any Cokes with ice. You like dates? You like dates?”

    Miss you Jay!!!!!!

  • It reminds you how confusing English can be. Do you ‘walk out’ — on stage — or do you ‘walk out’ — of the theatre? So long as you don’t ‘walk in’ halfway through the performance.
