That Is Funny, Funny Stuff

When I followed Michael Spencer's link at the Boar's Head Tavern to this piece by Larry Miller in the Weekly Standard, I had no inkling (despite Michael's raves) just how just how much I would really end up loving it.

It's a first-hand account of what it was like for a young comic to walk out from behind that curtain on the Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and it's not only the best post-mortem piece I've seen yet about Carson, it's the single most entertaining thing I've read about anything this year.
