Johnny Carson Dies at Age 79


Late night talk show host Johnny Carson has died at the age of 79 (10-23-25 to 1-23-05). Watching Carson was nightly ritual for thousands of television fans from 1962 until his retirement in 1992.



Carson's unique brand of interviewing and comedy made him a beloved icon of late night TV. Just hearing Ed McMahon who was always more than a second banana or side-kick shout "Heeere's Johnny" brought a smile to your face. McMahon who was with Carson for over 30 years was a perfect foil for Johnny Carson's sometimes slapstick humor and bad jokes.

Johnny Carson was often host to oddball characters. Ukulele playing Tiny Tim was one of them. Comedian Jay Leno who presently hosts the Tonight Show was an earlier substitute host for Carson; so was Joan Rivers who has remade herself into a popular awards-show interviewer/entrepreneur. Carson himself, got his "Tonight Show" start in 1958 when he hosted the show for Jack Paar. He replaced Paar a few years later.

Carson was a staff writer for the Red Skelton Show in 1951, he was a moderator/host for the game show Who Do You Trust? until 1962.

In later years, Johnny Carson was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1992; and in 1993 he was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors: A Celebration of the Performing Arts with such notables as Arthur Mitchell, Stephen Sondheim, Marion Williams and Georg Solti.
