Johnny Carson’s classic character ‘Carnac the Magnificent’ draws huge laughs

Johnny Carson was and always will be the king of late night TV.

Johnny Carson always delivered big laughs on his late-night show. From time to time, he would play various recurring characters. One of those memorable characters was ‘Carnac the Magnificent.’ Ed McMahon introduces ‘Carnac,’ played by Johnny Carson. He stumbles across the stage after appearing from the curtain wearing a red turban that is way too big for his head. He goes on to predict the hidden contents of the notecards while the audience laughs at every joke.
