I was quite saddened upon hearing the news of Johnny Carson’s passing. He was an early influence on my comedic stylings. As a youth in the 80’s I was very much into Late Night with David Letterman, but I think overall Johnny had a bigger impact on me and how I view television and comedy. He really was the King of Late Night.
In recent years, every now and then when the Tonight Show would come on, I’d say “I miss Johnny” and now I guess we’ll all miss Johnny.
