Leno, who hosted The Tonight Show from 1992 to 2014 before retiring and being replaced by Fallon, made headlines earlier this month when he suffered serious burns to his hands and face after one of the vehicles in his garage exploded.

Allen, 69, was asked right away by Fallon how Leno was doing, as an amazed Allen recalled his conversation with Leno just after the accident, where Leno revealed he wasn’t taking any painkillers despite being in an immense amount of pain.

When asked about Leno, Allen compared Leno to the Marvel character Deadpool, who, ‘couldn’t feel pain.’ 

‘I called him the day of the accident — our shops are close to each other. We play around with hot rods and stuff. And one of his mechanics called and said, “Jay’s been in a bad accident,”‘ Allen began.

‘What do you do? He’s going to the hospital what am I’m going to do? All I can do is leave a message. He calls, like, back five minutes later. “Hey, Tim, what’s going on?”‘ Allen said.

Allen told him, ‘Oh, sorry Jay I heard you were in a bad accident,’ as Leno confirmed, ‘Yeah, burned all over third degree burns on my hands, on my face, everything.’

‘I go, “Where are you — what are you doing right now?” “I’m holding the phone it’s really painful,”‘ Allen revealed as the audience laughed.

‘He’s not on painkillers. He said, “And I’m not on painkillers.” “Why not?” “Pain is there for a reason,”‘ Allen added, joking, ‘Okay. I think pain is there to tell you to take a painkiller isn’t that what it’s supposed to.’

‘Went and saw him and he’s just an amazing human being. He just wanted to get out of the hospital and he’s — it was one bit after another we sat and talked for a lot,’ Allen said.

‘I get interviewed and they said he’s — “He looks terrible.” I said, “Well, he generally didn’t look that good to begin with,’ Allen joked, adding, ‘Every comic said the same joke,’ as Jimmy admitted, ‘no Jay would love that.’

‘Yeah. But he said he’s going with the Clooney look. And he looks really good considering the grafts he’s got. The picture today, it is amazing what they can do the hospital did a great job,’ Allen said, as Jimmy wished Jay, ‘a speedy recovery.’

Amazing: 'Went and saw him and he's just an amazing human being. He just wanted to get out of the hospital and he's -- it was one bit after another we sat and talked for a lot,' Allen said

Allen added, ‘We were just riffing. It was so stupid he’s all bandaged up “Yeah, I’m not on painkillers. I don’t feel like no painkillers.”‘

‘I kept looking at him I go, “Dude, could I use some? Because I’m in pain watching you,”‘ Allen joked. 

Allen returns as Scott Calvin in the Disney Plus series The Santa Clauses, which started streaming on Disney Plus last week.
