He wasn't the icon Johnny Carson was, but he still made his mark on television. Carson the perfect host and Ed the perfect sidekick. He may over sell a joke but that was part
of his charm.

Ed McMahon has been a pop culture icon for decades and went beyond being Johnny Carson's sidekick. Star Search, those Publisher's Clearing House commercials. Unforgettable parodies by the late Phil Hartman on SNL:

"Yes! You are correct, sir!"
"HEY-OOOOOOO!!"

RIP Ed McMahon.

I don't think he was overselling any joke. I think he was actually that fond of Carson, and having that much fun. He was also probably loaded half the time, which always makes ME laugh a little too much as well.

RIP Ed!

The sidekick often makes the host, and Ed McMahon was an incredible sidekick. He and Johnny played off each other so well, it was obvious they were friends outside of the studio.

RIP, sir!

I can only assume he was visited by Torgo the White during his ascension to Second Banana Heaven. RIP, big guy.

The Tonight Show aired a nice tribute to McMahon and showed some classic clips from his days with Carson. They also showed a clip from his appearance on Conan's show in its first season when he and Andy played 'quarters.'



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

For some reason, the Conan part of the segment shot last night isn't in HD in the clip.

I can't let this go without some recognition. Bravo to you sir.

As for Ed, he was great. Heck, I would buy a gold toilet seat from the man.

RIP.
