RIP: Ed McMahon

Ed McMahon

Not to sound like somebody’s who is as old as I actually am, but there are some things that I feel sorry for folks that are much younger than I am. Because they missed some great stuff. There are people who only know Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show and never got to see the genius that was Johnny Carson, hosting alongside the #1 television sidekick of all time–and Johnny’s friend–Ed McMahon. They might know McMahon as That Sweepstakes Guy. But Ed was The Man.

As demonstrated here, even years later he was still The Man.

Thanks for everything, Ed.

Update: Mark Evanier has written a great bit about Ed here. Thanks to Ken for the headsup.
