Johnny Carson's Palace Guard

Posted on April 30, 2015 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 2 comments
One of the coolest things about being a part of CEG is getting to work directly with Jeff Sotzing, Johnny's nephew. Below is a link to a truly special interview with Jeff.  No one knows Johnny Carson as well as Jeff Sotzing. No one. When we discuss a show that we might release and Jeff begins to talk about some of the back story behind the show, I get a glimpse of the magic, the magic that was the Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. That magic is a feeling like something really amazing is happening here, has happened here and continues to happen. Maybe that magic began when Johnny was perfecting card tricks as a boy in Nebraska. And maybe it's that magic that has continued to keep this material so relevant and historic. Whatever it is, I'm glad that magic still exists and that we all get to be a part of it. I think this article is great, and I could feel the magic once I read it. This is it, this is magic… this is Johnny. Enjoy!
