Acclaimed TV late-night show host, stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist, Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.” Leno is renowned for his incredibly funny monologues, celebrity interviews, and of course his wry look at news headlines that never should have made it into print.

He's not afraid to talk about current affairs or to satirize public figures, but does it with a twinkle in his eyes that never comes off as mean-spirited. Jay’s late night television ratings domination included two decades as the host of the No. 1-rated “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” — he never lost a ratings year in which he served as host. Light up your night and come laugh with Leno!


Introducing Pop-up on the Plaza

Building upon the popularity of the annual end-of-summer Chautauqua Food Festival, and in response to requests for additional food and beverage service options and capacity, Chautauqua is pleased in 2021 to introduce the Pop-up on the Plaza, a fun and relaxing food and beverage experience before selected concerts.

Before you take your seat in the Amphitheater for an unparalleled concert experience, join your fellow concertgoers in our covered outdoor lounge on Bestor Plaza for conversation and concessions, including drinks and light fare from a rotating roster of food trucks or a special concert menu at the Brick Walk Cafe. On-grounds restaurants have been invited to participate in the experience as well.

Through the Pop-up on the Plaza, we aim to enhance the concert experience of all Chautauquans and to create a fun and welcoming environment for new visitors and concert-goers who aren’t residing on the grounds. As a pilot project, the Pop-ups will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. on selected dates.
