Back in 1983, Red Skelton, the legendary comic, appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.’ The show was filled with good-natured humor, and the two comedians traded quips and stories. Red’s sense of humor, which harkened back to the old days, was on full display. Johnny began the conversation by admiring Red’s height, to which Red responded with a joke about old age shrinkage. Red then went on to talk about how he didn’t let his age restrict him, and he started each day by checking if he could see and smell before getting up. The audience burst into laughter, and Red followed up with a joke about reading Playboy to get his heart started. Johnny asked Red if he exercised, but Red said he didn’t care for it.
The conversation then turned to Red’s name, and he told a funny story about how he came up with his middle name, Bernard. Red’s teacher had asked him for his middle name, and he didn’t know it, so he made one up.
Red also joked about his wife’s cooking, and the audience couldn’t stop laughing, and Johnny was in awe of Red’s quick wit and humor. Red’s appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ was filled with laughter and showcased his comedic talent.
