Jay Leno Returns To The Civic Arts Plaza
Acclaimed TV late night show host and admired stand-up comedian Jay Leno comes to Fred Kavli Theatre, Friday, March 16, 2018 at 8:00 pm.
Prior to becoming host, Leno had been the exclusive guest host on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" since September 1987. He first appeared as a guest with the show March 2, 1977, and made numerous additional appearances over the years.
As if night-time dominance were not enough, Leno has also succeeded in the newest entertainment area, "Jay Leno's Garage," of which he is a producer as well as the star. The NBC creation, which is viewed at Jaylenosgarage.com, has gained an international following on the web, not to mention an Emmy Award.
An indefatigable performer, Leno loves to test his humor live an audiences across the nation, performing over 100 live appearances in nightclubs, theater, and stadiums each year. His everyman style and personality have helped him earn millions of fans worldwide.
When he is not performing, writing or doing charitable work, Leno keeps busy doing voice-over work in such movies as "Cars" and "Igor" and the hit-TV show "The Fairly Oddparents" where the character "The Crimson Chin" - a superhero with a chin with superpowers - was inspired by Leno's own noted jaw line.
Leno was born in New Rochelle, New York and raised in Andover, Massachusetts. He and his wife, Mavis, live in Los Angeles.
