Jack Hanna became a household name thanks to his frequent, always entertaining appearances on Late Night With David Letterman, exotic animals in tow. Hannas ability to play the slightly awkward straight man to Lettermans bemused and occasionally nervous host endeared him to millions and gave his fans a new appreciation for wildlife and ecology (and usually provided a few laughs when his animals acted invetably like, well, animals on live television). Hanna brings his touring show to the Carpenter Center this afternoon, complete with its promises of unpredictable animal behavior and fun and awwwwwww moments for the whole family. Lets just hope the Carpenter Center has Scotchgarded the green room carpet.
