VIDEO: Whoopi Goldberg Talks Moms Mabley Tribute on JAY LENO
Whoopi Goldberg visited with Jay Leno on NBC's THE TONIGHT SHOW last night and discussed the irony behind the recent controversy of "crack-smoking" Toronto mayor Rob Ford. Goldberg also explains her tribute to Moms Mabley, the first black female comedian to cross over to mainstream America, and why it was important for her to pay homage in the new film, "Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley".

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" features a nightly monologue (the longest in late night), news-making guests, and ongoing comedy segments, including "Headlines," "Jaywalking" and "Battle of Jaywalking All-Stars." The result is a unique and humorous look at the daily happenings in the news and in pop culture.
The program is also a proven barometer of political clout. In 2009, the show made history by being the first late-night show to host a sitting president when Jay Leno welcomed President Barack Obama as a guest.
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" is from Big Dog Productions in association with Universal Television. Debbie Vickers is the executive producer.
