Jack Hanna known as 'Jungle Jack' will bring his kid-friendly show "Into the Wild Live!" to Central New York.

Jack Hanna, one of the most famous animal experts thanks to Johnny Carson and David Letterman, will be heading to Syracuse next year. Syracuse.com reports "Into the Wild Live!" comes to the Crouse Hinds Theater at the Oncenter on Oct. 14, 2016.  

Tickets are $25, $35, $45 and $75 and go on sale Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.com, by calling 800-745-3000 or at the Solvay Bank Box Office at the Oncenter.

'Into the Wild Live!' is a concert-style show that he's been presenting for the last eight years, Hanna introduces a variety of animals on stage along with video clips from his many wildlife adventures around the world, hoping to entertain and inform in the laid-back style that has made him one of the country's most recognizable animal authorities.

Jack Hanna has this to say when interviewed by the Los Angeles Times:

"We have a great lineup of animals to show," Hanna said. "We fly an owl over the audience, which is tremendous. They are called the bird of silent flight and you can appreciate why when you see it overhead. We have a gator that is 10 feet long and we have cameras and a screen so you can see down his throat, and we hope to show a kangaroo with a baby inside its pouch."

Hanna currently has two family-friendly series on TV in the syndicated "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild" and his new "Wild Countdown," which airs Saturday mornings on ABC. He is still a frequent guest on "Good Morning America," who first brought the zookeeper to national attention in 1983 when he was invited to appear after twin baby gorillas were born at the Columbus Zoo. But perhaps his most memorable appearances have been on "Late Show With David Letterman," where he has been a regular since 1985.
