CATOOSA – Characterized as the “hardest working man in show business,” Jay Leno is bringing his humor April 5 to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.

Tickets start at $59 and go on sale Feb. 1.

Leno is best known for his late night television ratings domination for more than two decades hosting “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” After taking over for Johnny Carson in 1992, Leno racked up awards, including an Emmy for “Outstanding Comedy, Variety or Music Series” as well as TV Guide Awards’ “Favorite Late Night Show” that was determined by voting viewers.

Leno was recently inducted into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Broadcasting Hall of Fame, and his accolades include the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2014, the Hasty Pudding Award at Harvard University and an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Emerson College. He’s also received a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and has been invited to have his papers installed in the Library of Congress.

Today, Leno produces and stars in his newest entertainment success, “Jay Leno’s Garage,” which airs on CNBC. He’s earned an Emmy Award and two additional nominations for Outstanding Special Class-Short-Format Nonfiction Programs. His passion for cars has also fueled him to set several land speed records and to become the first person to drive the pace car of all major NASCAR events.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. Ticket prices and information on upcoming shows are available online in The Joint section of www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com or by calling 918-384-ROCK. The Joint box office is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
