This week in 1981: Jay Leno performs a one-week run at Honolulu’s Comedy Corner. The cover charge: $4 on weeknights and $5 on weekends with a two-drink minimum. When he returns for me in a show at the Waikiki Shell in 1988 it’s $15 a ticket, with Jay flying in that afternoon and flying out at sunrise the next morning.
