Classic Carson

I read Bob’s post on Johnny Carson and wholeheartedly agree that Johnny Carson was definitely the king of late night television. I  was a huge fan and would watch every night. While reading Bob’s post I was reminded of two skits that Johnny did that I always thought were very funny and I was able to find them on YouTube. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did and still do.

The first is Johnny Carson playing a Congressman accused of making false statements to the media. As the Congressman he has decided to do a press conference while hooked up to a lie detector machine.

The second is Johnny Carson playing Aunt Blabby, one of his continuous characters. The thing I like about this clip is the way that he and his co-host Ed McMahon could play off of one another and sometimes make the audience laugh even when the material they had to work with wasn’t all that funny.
