Jay Leno

Sunday, August 13, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Act Quickly, Selling Fast

As host of The Tonight Show, Jay Leno dominated late-night television for more than two decades – garnering an Emmy Award and a spot in the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame. Still enjoying remarkable success as a best-selling author, voice-over artist and host of the Emmy-winning Jay Leno’s Garage, he’ll bring his unique and genuine brand of comedy for a special night of stand-up at the Schermerhorn.

August 13 at 3 pm before the Jay Leno presentation
Presented in partnership with the Lane Motor Museum

Inspired by Jay Leno’s love of classic cars, we will be assembling a handful of one of a kind vintage rides outside on Symphony Place. We’ll have tunes from DJ Bama as he spins your favorite oldies tracks and slow-churn ice cream from Bradley's Curbside Creamery.
