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.”

Having passed the torch of Tonight Show succession to Jimmy Fallon, Jay has increased his customary busy schedule of comedy performances in top venues around the United States and abroad. Jay Leno will join Lite 100.5 WRCH for their "20th Annual Nite Of Lite Laughter” at The Bushnell in Hartford on Friday, Oct. 13, with proceeds to benefit the fight against Breast Cancer. For tickets or more information you can call 860-987-5900.
