It was just a year ago that Clay Aiken visited The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Along with Jay, Clay had a fun time meeting and talking to the comedian, Jack Black.
As part of his promo tour for his album, “On My Way Here”, Clay had the opportunity to chat with Jay and perform the first single from his album.
Jack Black was the first guest of the evening and stayed on the couch during Clay’s interview. In fact, Jack and Clay had so much fun talking to each other that Jay declared them the “Black and Aiken comedy team.”
Jay brought up immediately how different Clay’s hair was this visit. Clay responded by saying that the dark hair made him look older. He commented that he needed to look younger because his “peers” in the industry were all twelve.
There was a lot of talk about Spamalot and Jack asked if Clay had met any Monty Python people. Jack seemed impressed that Clay had met Eric Idle. Clay admitted that as soon as he entered the theater, he started talking with his British accent.
Besides Spamalot, Clay told about being cut by his high school musical and blew a raspberry to the teacher that cut him. He responded to Jay’s question about superstitions by saying that he was not concerned about that, but learned quickly that “McBeth” should not be spoken in the theater.
There was a full house and there were many Clay fans in the live audience. Clay looked good and seemed very relaxed and happy. It was a wonderful evening and the only thing that would have made it better was more Clay time!!
The following videos will help you remember the evening. Enjoy!
