Aside from his work as one of the most prolific comedians in the industry, he is the host and executive producer of his CNBC show, “Jay Leno’s Garage,” and former host of The Tonight Show. He is also a New York Times Best Selling author of numerous children’s books, such as “If Roast Beef Could Fly” and “How to Be the Funniest Kid In Your Class,” and a popular voice-over actor in Disney’s and Nickelodeon’s hits such as “Cars” and “The Fairly OddParents.” With more than 40 years of experience in the industry and performing all over the world, Leno is among an elite group of entertainers who influences the world of comedy today.
