Answers to Who Am I:
A) Johnny Carson. Carson is best known for hosting "The Tonight Show," for over thirty years. Consistently at the top of the ratings, his breezy, relaxed manner, comic monologue, and selection of guests made him an American institution. His talk show personality combined mid-western innocence with cosmopolitan wit. Though known for his impersonations, skits with recurring characters like Carnac the Psychic, improvisation, and the golf swing that ended his monologues, the program's appeal was its familiar formula: sidekick Ed McMahon introduced him by announcing, "Heeere's Johnny!"; then Carson did a monologue followed by guest interviews - a mix of celebrities and small-town types--punctuated by Doc Severinsen's music. Carson's command of the talk show genre inspired a generation of imitators and admirers, most notably Jay Leno, his "Tonight Show" heir, and David Letterman, who spoke of Carson as a mentor.
