Acclaimed TV late-night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…it’s no wonder that Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”
Jay Leno’s late-night television ratings domination included more than two decades of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, winning every consecutive quarter of his hosting over the past 19 years. As if night-time dominance were not enough, Leno has also succeeded in the newest entertainment arena with Jay Leno’s Garage of which he is a producer as well as star. The NBC creation, which is viewed at JayLenosGarage.com, has 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.
An indefatigable performer, Leno loves to test his humor live on audiences across the nation, performing over 100 live appearances in nightclubs, theaters and stadiums each year, including during his long Tonight Show hosting. He has been touted as one of the nicest people in show business and the hardest-working—a winning tandem for the man who says “Anyone can have a life; careers are hard to come by!”
