A true Hollywood legend passed away today at the age of 86. Ed will always be known as the original and #1 sidekick, working on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson from the 1960’s until 1992 when Johnny retired. Always a gentleman and quick with a comeback, Ed had the most contagious laugh that you couldn’t help but laugh with him once he got going. He will be best known for his line: HEEEEERE’S Johnny!!!! Copied by many announcers over the years but was so perfectly mimicked best by Jack Nicholson in “The Shining.”
We will miss you Ed. Thanks for all the fun memories growing up in front of the tube!
