Jay Leno’s First Stand up Comedy Appearance on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show 1977

Jay Leno’s First Stand up Comedy Appearance on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show 1977

Wonder if Jay Leno had any idea than many years later he would be the host of the Tonight Show when he first appeared back in 1977.

John WilliamJohnnyCarson (October 23, 1925 – January 23, 2005) was an American television host, comedian, writer, producer, actor, and musician known for thirty years as host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962–1992). Carson received six Emmy Awards, the Governor’s Award, and a 1985 Peabody Award. He was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1987. Johnny Carson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1992 and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 1993.

Although his show was already successful by the end of the 1960s, during the 1970s Carson became an American icon and remained so until his retirement in 1992. He adopted a casual, conversational approach with extensive interaction with guests, an approach pioneered by Arthur Godfrey and previous Tonight Show hosts Steve Allen and Jack Paar. Late-night host David Letterman has cited Carson’s influence.  Wikipedia
