D.J. Adamson: “I feel like I've won the Jay Leno lottery. In fact I got a free meal once at a restaurant because I said I was Dave Leno, Jays brother."

Adamson says this is the thrill of a life time, finally he gets the last laugh. And he's making a little vacation of it, bringing along Mrs. Leno, uh Adamson.

Julie Adamson, Wife: “Never a dull moment, ever since we’ve been married. We’ve been married almost 22 years.
