Heeeere's Johnny - and he's talented!
3 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

This show originally aired in October 1963 - barely a year after Johnny took over the Tonight Show. As such it is one of the few available shows from that era featuring Johnny which has survived. (Carson fans know that NBC re-used - and thus erased - his Tonight shows from this time period.) Johnny is still young (a year shy of 39 in fact as opposed to Jack's "39") and he shows off his versatility as a close up magician with a deck of cards, as a drummer, as a singer(!) and dancer. For those of us who only remember him as a talk show host it is quite a revelation. And, by the way, it's quite a funny show too featuring a send up of Johnny's Tonight Show as its featured skit. Thanks too to Antenna TV for re-broadcasting this classic.
