Ed McMahon, A True Original, Dead at 86

Ed McMahon, who was a true original, and will always be one of the greats of the golden age of television, has passed away at the ripe old age of 86. He had a pretty good life, especially all those years sitting next to Johnny Carson and, more often than not, making Johnny laugh longer and harder than any other human being ever could. And we laughed with him. Or, I did, at least.

Ed McMahon was One of the Television Greats.

And nothing against Jay Leno, but since the days of the pairing of Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon passed, there’s been nothing like it on late night. They were both one-of-a-kinds, and never will we see their like again.
