Need a laugh? The one and only JAY LENO is coming to The Venue at Horseshoe Casino on Friday, August 23 at 7pm!

His down-to-earth persona and topical humor have helped make Jay Leno one of the most recognizable personalities in the business. In the '70s the comic toured as a stand-up -- sometimes booking as many as 300 gigs annually -- and made multiple appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. In the '80s Leno warmed Carson's seat as the show's regular guest host. When Carson retired in 1992, NBC passed hosting duties for The Tonight Show to Jay Leno, much to the chagrin of competitor David Letterman, who had his eye on job. Leno sustained his popularity and approachability well into the '00s.
