    Arguably the best interview segments on any talk show in history. Carson never laughed more than on this one night in December 1987.

    Johnny Carson was one of the best host's ever: He always gave the guests a chance to shine. He would say something and with a question or a statement he gave the cue for the guest to speak his mind. In the case of comedians he would, with this, trigger them to start «their act». Johnny Carson dearly missed by all as well as Robin, a one of a kind human being with the gift of making wonderful comedy. The speed that he would create jokes and verbalize them is stunning. Both of them reached immortality trough their art. Bless them. Greetings from Portugal.

    When someone says it's "his finest interview", be prepared for it not to be. He seems more reliant on sketch material as opposed to just letting it fly.

    At @3:21...In this times, that I am aware of what's happening - most around the globe...especially about... buckingham palace and all those "saintly" appearance of the royals...the "Bubba" is Robin's knowledge of inside palace "PEDOPHILIA"...especially when Robin showed holding his butt in pain...
    This could be the reason why...Robin.....gone...his inside information...knowing it all...
    Hollywood and the royals...etc...

  • Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh

    it's good but that tape they play, or believed they had to play, every other second with a very loud and noisy cheerful crowd on it, is like a torture.. doesn't even sound realistic

    • Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh
      Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh 3 months ago

      okay.. i am sure much of the laughter is indeed real.. but honestly, if you listen carefully at least in some places in this video,, the laughter comes on far too sudden and ends too abruptly... in my opinion anyway.. if you want my honest opinion, i find most of Robin Williams' jokes here painfully unfunny and can understand they "topped up" the laugher using taped laughter. It is understandable because otherwise, Williams would have come across less the funny man that he was considered to be. I dont find him funny. It makes me cringe to watch his "comedy", although i like some of his acting in movies.

      I hear what your saying but I was in the audience for about 25 of those Carson shows--not this one. There were several hundred people laughing and the audience was heavily miked. Sometimes Carson's monologue died, or something wasn't working--you could tell this later when you watched it on TV that he wasn't getting anything. They taped at 5:30pm to 6:30pm. There were bits that were pre-taped and included in the show, but the live audience reacted to those pre-taped bits--not pre-recorded laughter. The show was transmitted to the East Coast, then back to the West Coast.
      It played from 11:30pm to 1am for most of it's run. Then Carson renegotiated his contract and the show was cut to an hour--11:30pm to 12:30am. I forget when it became 11:35pm to 12:35am. Anyway, I did hear that added can laughter on some of the other talk shows back then--Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin--they all did it but they were not broadcasters like Carson was--and later Letterman. I do think Leno spiked his laughter all the time and added the band laughing at his jokes when they weren't funny--Carson's band never laughed in order to punch up the laughter, partially because Carson was the master at getting laughs when jokes bombed. It's also very tacky when a joke doesn't work and the band starts laughing hysterically--Mad TV did parodies of Leno and the band fake laughing.

    • Ulrich Gerhard Osterloh

      the show was recorded around 5 pm in front of a live audience and broadcast after 11pm. Plenty of time to "improve" the laughter a little bit, so all of WIlliams' jokes appear funnier than they are...There is some real audience laughter on it of course but many times throughout the interview you can hear the artificial laughter added on top of it, it is far too strong in most places and beginning and ending too abruptly. It is just that people in the States are too used to this artificial laughter added on top of the real laughter, so you think it is real, but it is way too intense to be real, it is taped and i heard exactly the same laughter on various shows, it must be some kind of standard laughter tape. As I said, there is some real laughter there as well, it is not all taped of course.

    As i posted on part 2, i was an extra on Good Morning, Vietnam, and witnessed the filming of those scenes in the studio. As we were only a few extras and a handful of actors, we all had lunch together and he'd join us 2-3 times a week. He really was a wonderful character.

    I think whenever Robin Williams was on the Carson show. He was always on there the longest of any guest that was on that night. And you see why. He was a master of his craft. There will never be another Robin Williams.

    A lot of this was humor based on what was happening at that time that some may not get if they’re not old enough to remember events of ‘87; the stock market crash, corrupt televangelists Jim and Tammi Faye Bakker, etc... but Robin is on fire here as usual. I don’t know which is funnier... watching Robin, or watching Johnny’s reactions to his rapid fire humor. RIP to Robin, Johnny and Ed. Late night tv was never quite the same after Johnny retired.
