Jay Leno is bringing out the big guns for his prime-time debut: NBC confirmed Friday that Jerry Seinfeld will be the first guest on ‘The Jay Leno Show.’

Seinfeld will do more than just chat with Jay–he’ll also do some stand-up. The splashy premiere also features Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West all together on stage as the musical guests.

The high-profile appearance should be mutually beneficial, since Jerry is promoting the big ‘Seinfeld‘ reunion happening this fall on ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’
