Johnny Carson was known as the King of Late Night with NBC’s The Tonight Show which he hosted between 1962-1992.
Johnny was famous for being suave, handsome, married a few times, liking a drink in the evenings, and having feuds with random people. He was a man who could talk in front of 20 million a night but if he had to have a conversation with 10 people—he was so awkward that it would make the experience uncomfortable for everyone.
His legacy is he was one of the best television performers of all time. Behind the scenes, he was known for being shy and awkward and could carry a grudge that lasted for decades. Some of that behavior puts him in the Creep category which is why he is the subject of our show today.
