You're absolutely correct. My wife and I had the opportunity to sit in the front row of company meeting with Leno doing an hour-long monologue. Not only was he very funny, the monologue was completely clean, not a single risque or inappropriate joke at all. And a good part of the monologue was car-oriented although not at all related to the company's business. It was great.
