With Special Guest Arsenio Hall
- Saturday, Apr 13, 2024 7:30 PM
Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.” Jay Leno’s late night television ratings domination included two decades as the host of the #1-rated The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Leno currently produces and is host of the CNBC primetime series Jay Leno’s Garage, now in its seventh season. The show explores the world of cars, never forgetting that it’s the people behind the wheel who provide the real stories. The series debuted in October 2015 and delivered CNBC’s most-watched first season in network history.
The show is an outgrowth of Jay Leno’s Garage YouTube Channel, which Leno produces and has an international following on the web and has garnered several Emmy Awards and nominations for Outstanding Special Class–Short-Format Nonfiction Programs.
His new product line, Jay Leno's Garage Advanced Vehicle Care, launched in December of 2016 and has been well received by the Automotive Industry worldwide.
Jay Leno is currently hosting You Bet Your Life. The comedy game show is co-hosted by Jay’s longtime Tonight Show bandleader Kevin Eubanks and features strangers teaming up to answer a series of trivia questions with the goal of winning thousands of dollars.
When he’s not on TV, Leno performs more than 100 stand-up shows annually across the country and internationally; participates in numerous charity and corporate events, does voice-overs for animated series, pens children’s books, and writes a monthly column in various automotive magazines. And in his “spare” time (as if he has any), he enjoys working on his collection of classic cars and motorcycles.
More About Arsenio Hall
