Here’s Jay: Homecoming Headliner
Late night television superstar Jay Leno will be the headline entertainer at Bradley University’s Homecoming on Saturday, October 16, in the newly dedicated campus arena. Leno replaced the iconic Johnny Carson in 1992 as the host of NBC’s Tonight Show. He also has appeared in films, has written several books, and continues to perform live more than 150 nights a year. A 2009 Harris Poll named the Emmy Award-winning comedian America’s Favorite TV Personality.

Speed painter to perform
Speed painter ELLIOTT FROM ’90, left, will bring his talent to the Quad at noon on Friday, October 15. He choreographs his paintings — which are completed in five to 10 minutes — to music, using his hands and a few brushes to create a work of art on a 4-by-5-foot black canvas. Elliott performed for Budweiser at the 2010 Winter Olympics. More recently, he painted a large mural on the windows of WGN Radio on Michigan Avenue to celebrate the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup victory.
