Johnny Carson was king of the nighttime talk comedy show. Although several have tried, no comedian has replace that night time-slot in the same way that Johnny did so well. From his childhood disappointments to his multiple marriage problems, Mr. Bushkin's brings to light the private side of Carson's life. It is an honest telling of his life and trials, but not a particularly flattering portrait of the man. It is difficult to identify with the out of control lifestyle that high profile stars lead, and Johnny certainly battled his demons. Even more surprising is that a lawyer would spend his life running interference and cleaning up the messes left behind.
