Comedic dynamos Jay Leno and Jeff Foxworthy will team for a joint show at Nashville’s Opry House on April 14, 2019. The unprecedented performance will mark the first time the two powerhouses have shared the stage.
Leno served as the host of NBC’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno from 1992-2009; he then ran the NBC talk show The Jay Leno Show from 2009-2010, before returning to host The Tonight Show With Jay Leno from 2010-2014. That same year, he was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. He currently hosts his Jay Leno’s Garage online.
Foxworthy has been part of eight comedy albums, and is known for his signature “You Might Be A Redneck If…” jokes, as well as his work as part of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour alongside Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy, and Ron White.
“These two legends, Jay Leno and Jeff Foxworthy, have never shared a stage together,” notes Outback Concerts’ David Bastidos. “We couldn’t be more excited to be the ones to make it happen and bring these two comedy icons to the great city of Nashville for our annual Nashville Comedy Festival.”
The show will begin at 6 p.m. CT on April 14. Tickets go on sale Monday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. CT at ticketmaster.com, the Opry House box office, Ryman Auditorium box office and all ticketmaster outlets.
