While he may be best known for his decades-long tenure behind The Tonight Show desk, Jay Leno cut his teeth as one of the most incisive comedy voices of the ‘70s and 80s. His new standup comedy tour reminds his fans why he became a household name in the first place! As an acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, speaker, philanthropist and the host of the Emmy winning series Jay Leno's Garage on CNBC, it’s no wonder that Jay Leno has always been widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”
Jay Leno’s late night television ratings domination included more than two decades of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, winning every consecutive quarter of his hosting over the past 19 years. After resuming hosting the 11:35 PM program following a one-time brief interruption of these duties, Jay once again took the show to the top, leading all of the ensuing quarters handily for another three years. Under his helm, the show was honored by the Television Academy with an Emmy for “Outstanding Comedy, Variety or Music Series.” The Tonight Show has also taken home the trophy for “Favorite Late Night Show” in the annual TV Guide Awards determined by voting viewers, and Jay was recently installed in the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame.
This Television Hall of Fame inductee exudes his everyman style and personality which has earned him millions of fans worldwide. He has been touted as one of the nicest people in show business and says “Anyone can have a life – careers are hard to come by!”
