Johnny Carson “Deputy John” Routine on The Ed Sullivan Show

A very young Johnny Carson doing his “Deputy John” routine on the Ed Sullivan Show November 11, 1957. He would do this routine in his live shows, mostly Las Vegas, for years. It looks like he may have been given the cut sign to end the routine early. Ed’s show was always jam packed and acts were always being told to cut time.
