Posted on May 17, 2016 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 1 comment

Hey Carson Fans. We thought you'd get a kick out of the following interview From The Howard Stern Show on May 16, 2016. Steve Martin talks about his Friendship with Johnny Carson, his early appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, as well as the famous Poker Games that Steve Martin used to attend with Johnny. If you hadn't heard about the Poker Games yet, here's what is known. It’s been established through various interviews and specials that Johnny Carson played a monthly poker game at film producer Daniel Melnick’s house in the Hollywood Hills that often had comedy heavyweights stopping by to play, including: Johnny Carson, Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Carl Reiner and Neil Simon to name a few. Even after Carson left showbiz in 1992 he continued to play in the game and by all accounts it was was one of his favorite pastimes. It wasn’t just the poker that brought people to the game. There was also a world-class dinner that all players got to enjoy when the game was on break. Steve recounts that it was a lot of fun, as we can only imagine! Here's a link to the interview. Please Note: There's some language used that might not be suitable for all audiences and Howard is Howard, just so you know what you're getting into, and if you have kids around, tell them to go play. It's a good listen. Here's the link. Enjoy!
