He graduated from Harvard magna cum laude with a thesis about the use of children as symbols by William Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor. He was a writer for various comedy programs, including Saturday Night Live, and got his own show, Late Night in 1993. In 2009, he took over the Tonight Show for 7 months after host Jay Leno retired, then changed his mind and took the show back.

He is married and has two children.
