Playboy Jazz Festival features George Lopez as new host

The 35th annual Playboy Jazz Festival is set to see his longtime host Bill Cosby replaced by comic and former late-night host George Lopez.

Cosby had served as the festival's host since 1979 but stepped down last year.

The festival, which was founded by Hugh Hefner in 1959, showcases established and emerging musicians from the genre.

First held in Chicago, Illinois at the Chicago Stadium, the event was later relocated to the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles in 1979 where it has been held ever since.
