Tuesday, January 19
8:00 am – 9:00 am
Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino – Paradise Event Center
Headlining the ceremonies is comedian and all-around nice guy Jay Leno! An 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.” His “everyman”-style and personality have helped him earn millions of fans worldwide, especially in the regions where people relate to his personable style and work ethic.
It was in May of 1992 when Leno followed in the footsteps of legendary NBC late-night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson as “Tonight Show” host, and he spent the next two decades as the leader of late night. Since passing the torch, Leno remains passionate about performing in front of live audiences, including the military, and appears regularly in Las Vegas, on college campuses around the United States and in other venues. He’s written best-selling children’s books, non-fiction and humor, and is a monthly columnist in “Popular Mechanics,” as well as creating the successful web series “Jay Leno’s Garage.” And in his “spare” time (as if he has any), he enjoys working on his collection of classic cars and motorcycles.
Then get ready for an exhilarating show from Rhythm Extreme, filled with drumming, tapping, banging, slamming, spinning and burning beats! Not only do they use real drums, but they also create infectious beats with oil drums, trash cans, buckets, brooms, hockey sticks, prescription bottles, BBQ grills, forks, spoons and lots of other everyday ordinary objects. Give them ANYTHING and they’ll use it to make rhythm!
Open to all registered attendees. Doors open at 7:00 AM. Limited general seating is available on a first-come, first served basis.
