Jay Leno was in his happy place once again as he was spotted for the first time cruising down the street in a silver, 2002 Mercedes-Benz just one day after being released from the Grossman Burn Center.

Leno was released from the West Hills hospital on Monday after a 10-day stay where he received multiple surgeries for third-degree burns to his face, chest and hands from a fire which broke out at his garage in Burbank.

“Everything’s OK,” Jay said while laughing. Leno also admitted he’s ready to go back to work, too, and will be “performing Sunday at the Comedy Magic Club.” When told to get some rest, Leno quipped, “Ya, I need barbecue.”

Jay looked completely at ease driving down the street despite the traumatic event nearly two weeks ago when he was sprayed with gasoline while working on one of his vintage vehicles and a fire ignited, causing serious damage to his body.
