Robin Williams Birthday

Posted on July 21, 2015 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 0 comments

Today we remember Robin Williams, he would have been 64 today. With his passing last year, his birthday helps us remember what we miss so much about him. His amazing comic timing was always apparent on his guest appearances on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. Starting with his first appearance with Johnny in 1981 through to the penultimate show on 5/21/92, Robin was comedy gold. His first appearance has been featured on the Ultimate Collection as well as the Tonight 15 disc set, and this year three more classic full shows with Robin were released on the Featured Guest Series Volume 2. Robin is truly missed. Here's a few articles about remembering Robin from Today and MTV. Thanks for all the laughs and for always putting a smile on our faces.

Happy Birthday Doc!

Posted on July 07, 2015 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 1 comment

Today is Doc Severinsen's Birthday! The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson would not have been the ground breaking show it was without Doc's contributions. He was a member of the big three. There was Johnny, Ed and Doc. Doc joined the Tonight Show Band in 1962 and was with the show until the end. Under Doc's direction, The Tonight Show NBC Orchestra became the most visible big band in America. Doc was also adept at comic interplay, picking up parts in many of the sketches that were performed as well as the "Stump the Band" segment and filling in for Ed as Johnny's announcer and sidekick. Doc's significant additions truly helped make the The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson the top-rated show that it became. Doc's musical performances were always high class as can be heard on the Doc Severinsen  - CD Collection. To pay tribute to Doc here's a great trumpet solo from July 24, 1981. Happy Birthday Doc!
