WHEN: Thu, March 12, at 8pm WHERE: State Theatre, 15 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick
See one of the world’s leading entertainers, comedian Jay Leno, live in New Brunswick! Leno has captivated living rooms across the world for over 20 years with charisma, comedy, and charm as host of late night television’s top-rated The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and now with Jay Leno’s Garage on CNBC.
A television icon, stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, Leno has been deemed "the hardest working man in show business." He has been honored by the Television Academy with an Emmy® for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series and was inducted into the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame.
As if night-time dominance were not enough, Leno has also succeeded with the television show, Jay Leno’s Garage, of which he is a producer as well as star. The NBC creation, which is viewed on CNBC, gained an international following on the web, not to mention an Emmy® Award and two additional nominations for Outstanding Special Class–Short-Format Nonfiction Programs. Leno, himself, is the recipient of the People’s Choice Award and other honors, including the Harris Poll selection as most popular star on television. Other personal highlights include his induction into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Broadcasting Hall of Fame, his 2014 reception of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the Hasty Pudding Award at Harvard University, an honor whose sole prior comedy/talk host recipient was Johnny Carson, and an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Emerson College. Like Mr. Carson, Groucho Marx, and an elite group of entertainment figures, he was invited to have his papers installed in the Library of Congress.
