Acclaimed TV late night show host and admired stand-up comedian, Jay Leno will bring his latest comedy tour to the brand new Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land on Friday, May 5 at 8 p.m.
Following in the footsteps of NBC’s legendary late night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson, Leno dominated the 11:35 p.m. hour as the host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” for 19 years. His “everyman” style and personable approach helped him clench a firm leadership in all demographic categories, a winning streak exceeding 50 consecutive quarters, and earning him the Emmy award for “Outstanding Comedy, Variety and Music Series” and TV Guide Awards’ “Favorite Late Night Show” trophy.
Leno has since retired from his post as the ‘Tonight Show’ host and launched his latest venture “Jay Leno’s Garage,” an online web series of which he is a producer and star. Gaining international attention, the show has earned Leno another Emmy win and two nominations for Outstanding Special Class-Short Format Nonfiction Programs.
