Johnny Carson, the former King of Late Night, was born on this day in 1925. We've covered Tom Snyder and David Letterman on the podcast, and maybe someday we'll get around to giants like Alan Thicke and Pat Sajak. And THEN maybe we'll cover Carson.
In the meantime, enjoy this clip of Rodney Dangerfield killing it on The Tonight Show. It's ostensibly a Rodney clip, but watch how Carson works with him and lets him get the laughs. Of nothing else, watch Johnny's jacket.
