‘The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson’ welcomed the ‘King of Cool’ Dean Martin to the show in 1979. Dean was known for his singing and had one of the most popular acts in Las Vegas.
Johnny introduces Dean, and he walks out with a cigaarette in one hand and a glass in the other. Dean wears a tan suit and glasses as he waves to the band, and Johnny dances to the music as he walks to him for a handshake.
Dean sits and says, “Boy! This is it, huh?” he stares at the band and the audience in awe. Dean says, “You and I must be the worst entertainers in the world.” The crowd laughs along with Johnny.
Dean talks about how he and Johnny only have one show each, while everyone else he knows has seven or eight shows. Dean tells Johnny he would always want to watch him, but he could never find out what night his show was on.
