Jay Leno read the tarot on Thursday, April 29th’s Tonight Show (thanks to Paul Nagy for the heads-up) in which the literal level of the cards (no matter how absurd) come to life right before our eyes. Leno says he learned to read tarot from his two Italian grandmothers. He’s using the Morgan-Greer Tarot deck (the artist is Bill Greer – no relation to me).

The Jay Leno show for April 29th, 2010 is no longer available on-line—although the tarot scene was incredibly well-done and laughingly irreverent. If anyone finds it please let me know. A stuntman clip from the scene is available but doesn’t include any of the tarot material.
