Johnny Carson was the master of late night. He was a great comic with an impeccable sense of timing. Here is one example of how he could turn a simple conversation into a great comedy bit.

This brilliant bit is from THE ERRAND BOY. Jerry started his career doing record pantomime, so this routine was a natural. I believe that's the Count Basie band providing the music.
