Gordon Ramsay on Leno

I just watched Gordon Ramsay appeasr on Leno (about 30 seconds ago). I thought it was hilarious! He was making fun of Leno, he was funny, not mean (ish), and made what looked like a tasty dish. Also admited that he likes In and Out Burger LOL!
Anyone else see it?
re: Steven T
He maybe a good chef, but he lacks any talent at humor. Just 4 letter words and silly laughs follow. More like a teenager looking for someone to verbally abuse or shock other.
Throwing food around the stage is not my idea of fun.
He doesn't show much respect for anything or anybody.
He set a new record for bleeped-out expletives and seemed somewhat nervous to me. Probably because he was trying to do a reined-in version of his Hell's Kitchen approach.
I've also gotten hooked on Kitchen Nightmares (he's bringing that one to the US in the Fall) and also on Boiling Point. He's a kick so long as you don't have to actually work for him. .I'd last about 5 minutes at best
I''ve seen Ramsay on Leno's show twice, maybe more. After the first time, it's really hard to tell which is a repeat, because the schtick is the same.
And that's sad.
Leno likes food.
Ramsay makes good food.
Together they make comedy and food gets short shrift.
I found the little GR segment on Leno really hilarious too!
I have heard that while GR was portrayed as a mean chef in the HK show, he was in person much nice and caring to his staff. He does swear and has high expectation for people who work in the kitchen, but all those mean comments and ill-tempered emotions were mainly for "good" TV.
His restaurant in NYC is superb!
