When he’s not filming his prime-time CNBC series “Jay Leno’s Garage” or on-air with “Last Man Standing” and “You Bet Your Life,” or working on his impressive collection of classic cars and motorcycles, Jay Leno performs more than 200 stand-up shows each year across the country and abroad.
Accurately dubbed “the hardest working man in show business,” Leno will take center stage performing TWO SHOWS at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Sunday, June 26, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. The iconic late-night comedian began his career doing stand-up comedy, then became the host of NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno from 1992 to 2009. He started a talk show at prime time, The Jay Leno Show on NBC, then returned to The Tonight Show from 2010 to 2014.
In addition to two Emmy’s, Leno has received numerous accolades and awards, including TV Guide’s Award for Favorite Late Night Show TWICE (1999 and 2000), the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Late Night Talk Show Host in 2006, and the Mark Twain for American Humor, in addition to being inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 2014.
The show, part of the Bart’s Tree Service comedy series, will provide fans with an unforgettable opportunity to see Jay Leno up close and personal doing what he does best!
