Joan Embery

We had a lot of fun chatting with Joan Embery and sharing memories about her many segments on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson.  We discussed her first appearance on the show (she was almost late due to an uncooperative elephant), how much work went into setting up each segment, and Johnny’s perfect comedy timing.  “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series” is a new DVD set out now.
