When people ask him why he left television news for a career impersonating Johnny Carson, he explains that his decision was determined by what can only be described as his uncanny resemblance to the “King of Late Night,” both in sight and sound. He says “It was difficult getting my job done out in the field because people were constantly requesting a monologue.” Then when his news director at the CBS affiliate in Phoenix suggested he might do his news anchoring as “Johnny,” he figured it was time to take the show on the road. “Besides,” he adds, “studio cameras don’t laugh – or applaud.” Since creating “Heeere’s Johnny II” in 1984, He’s been very busy and very successful. Working gigs from coast-to- coast, he’s entertained audiences as small as 60 and as large as 10,000. AWARDS: First place-Ed McMahon’s Sta Search competitio in Arizona.
