Happy Birthday Johnny

Posted on October 23, 2015 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 1 comment

90 years ago today, Johnny Carson, known as "The King of Late Night" and one of the biggest television stars ever, was born in Corning, Iowa. Johnny Carson became a bona fide Entertainment Icon and American institution as the host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson on NBC from 1962-1992. According to his New York Times obituary: "During his reign, Mr. Carson was the most powerful single performer on television. He discovered or promoted new talent like Barbara Streisand and David Letterman; provided a consistent spotlight for show business warhorses like Don Rickles and Buddy Hackett; advanced the careers of emerging stars like Woody Allen, Steve Martin and, of course his successor, Jay Leno; and helped keep older performers like Jimmy Stewart and William Demarest in the public eye."  

To commemorate Johnny's Birthday we're pleased to announce our latest release today! The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson Featured Guest Series 12 DVD set is now available for Pre-Order. Containing 33 shows - including commercials - plus close to 2 hours of bonus clips featuring some of the most beloved guests to ever appear on the show: Don Rickles, Robin Williams, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Burt Reynolds, Steve Martin, Rodney Dangerfield, George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Joan Embery and Jim Fowler. We have a special offer available on all Pre-Orders from now until 11/01/15. So Pre-Order today and Happy Birthday Johnny!

Interview with Johnny

Posted on October 16, 2015 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 1 comment
Happy Friday Carson Fans! While working on our latest DVD collection, which we'll be announcing next week, the following interview was mentioned during a show by one of the guests. I decided to look it up and watch it to gain perspective. The quality of the video is less than desirable and we'll have to check the archives and see if we have a better copy, but for now here's a link to the first part of the 1984 Barbara Walters interview with Johnny Carson on YouTube. There was a lot going on for Johnny in 1984 and professionally he was at the top of his game. Interviews with Johnny are rare and to see this candid side of him definitely gives you insight in to the man who we all saw nightly on The Tonight Show. So check it out and stay tuned for some exciting release news next week. Have a great weekend.
