Abstract (Document Summary)

Andover's [JAY LENO] was reminiscing about leaner days when, in obvious jest, he told the reporter: "I'll be playing at Lennie's-on- the-Turnpike Sunday. It's a nostalgia gig." Seriously, folks, he one- lines it next Friday and Saturday at Nick's Upstairs on Warrenton street downtown.

"Actually, Lennie (Sogoloff* gave me my big break when I was on the bill with strippers at the Two O'Clock Club and the Teddie Bear Lounge in the Combat Zone," said Leno during yesterday's telephone interview from Hollywood where he has become one of the nation's most popular young comedians. "At Lennie's I opened up for America for their debut performance in this country, for Buddy Rich, Mose Allison and Stan Getz."

Leno can be seen with [David Letterman] Feb. 7 after which he criss- crosses the United States until the first week in June. He also has guest roles on "Laverne and Shirley" and "Alice" in the ensuing weeks. He's made three movies, "American Hot Wax," "Silver Bears" and "Americathon," the latter two films best forgotten by the comedian.
