'The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: Johnny and Friends Featuring Jerry Seinfeld' DVD Review

If you were a young comic back in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's one of your big steps would come from an appearance on The Tonight Show. Young comics would come from the comedy store and if they were good enough they might get a wave of the hand to come over and sit with Johnny Carson. One such comic was a young Jerry Seinfeld. He would first appear on the show on May 6th, 1981. Johnny Carson was very impressed and Seinfeld would become a frequent guest. Seinfeld would later get his own show on NBC in 1989 and it would go onto become one of TV's greatest hits.

Now, the DVD will feature three shows with the first show coming from June 27th, 1985. This show would just be another visit by the young comic except it would feature "Mr. Rambo's Neighborhood" a skit made famous by The Mighty Carson Art Players. The second show that is featured will come from February 21th, 1986. It would have drag racer Shirley Muldowney and would have the first appearance of Oprah Winfrey on The Tonight Show. History in the making was this show. The third selection comes from June 9th, 1988 and would have Arnold Schwarzenegger and Andre Agassi as guests along with Jerry Seinfeld. The young comic had made a name for himself by now and would have his own show within the year.

Timelife brings this collection of shows to DVD on January 10th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. This DVD will make a great addition to that personal library of yours. This will keep you laughing all the way through it. Watch a young Jerry Seinfeld work his way into the heart of America. Enjoy.
