A New York Times Bestseller For thirty years Ed McMahon fed questions to Carnac the Magnificent, performed in the Mighty Carson Art Players, chatted with Aunt Blabby, and was even an usher at the wedding of Tiny Tim and Miss Vicky in the Church of Carson. Now Ed tells the stories and provides the insights into the personality that made Johnny Carson more of a friend we invited into our homes than a television star.

This book came in excellent condition. Some of the stuff McMahon talks about is well known to the reader and will be to the people who watched this wonderful show every night. There is talk about Carson and his running into McMahon's arms after a cheetah hissed at him, and their is talk about the shaving cream and Dom Delouise. Some material is new to the reader, and in it McMahon goes to great length to show the reader that indeed the two were great friends up until the end. Mostly, McMahon talks about happenings on the show which we are really aware of from watching it, but you still wish the book would never end. It was disappointing only in that the book was very short. A good but not great read!...Maurice H Bank

This book was wonderfull! It brought back great memories of the Tonight Show and Johnny. The stories and anecdotes were funny and entertaining Ed captured the essence of the show and reminded me that one does not have to use dirty language and obscence gestures to be funny. It was great to remember the laughs. Recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read or is a fan of Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon.
