Hanna, who served as the Executive Director of the Columbus Zoo for many years, is known for putting on performances that are not only one of a kind but also entertaining and motivational for his audiences of all ages. This live show is appropriate for all ages and features a number of Jungle Jack’s most beloved animal companions, in addition to fascinating and hilarious anecdotes and footage from his travels all over the world. This hilarious and entertaining performance is sure to amuse and enthrall its audience!
In 1978, he was appointed Director of the deteriorating Columbus Zoo in Columbus, Ohio, which catapulted him to the forefront of national attention. Not only did he make the zoo into a facility that could serve as a model for others, but he also used his expertise in the media to make the Columbus Zoo a household name. Animal expert Jack Hanna has become a household name in large part due to the success of his nationally syndicated television show, “Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures,” as well as his hundreds of appearances on shows such as “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Good Morning America,” and “Larry King Live.” In addition, he has made appearances on television shows such as “Hollywood Squares,” “The Maury Povich Show,” “Entertainment Tonight,” and a number of different news programs alongside his animal companions. In addition, Jack is the author of six books, the most notable of which is his autobiography titled “Monkeys on the Interstate,” as well as several books for children.
He currently holds the position of ambassador for the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and has done so for the past 20 years, during which time he has promoted the activities of this attraction. Both the American Zoo and Aquarium Association and the Explorer’s Club count Hanna as a Professional Fellow in their respective organizations. In addition to this, he is an enthusiastic supporter of Easter Seals and the Leukemia Society, and he sits on the boards of directors of a number of different educational organizations. Despite the fact that he takes all of his civic responsibilities very seriously, he insists that the protection of wildlife is his true calling.
