Johnny Carson Almost Starred in ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’ [VIDEO]
Comedic icon Dick Van Dyke made an appearance on Conan recently, and I fell in love with him all over again! Star of ‘Mary Poppins,’ ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show,’ and a whole catalog of amazing works on both the big ans small screens. I was shocked when I learned that he almost didn’t play the lead role in the show that bears his own name!
The crowd erupted when Dick walked on to the stage, but to fully appreciate the interview there is one side you need to know. Before Van Dyke joined everyone on stage, there was a hilarious interview with Jason Sudeikis. Conan tells Jason about how his mom would go to the store and ask people if they watched TV, then would proceed to hand out Conan key chains to any and everyone. And speaking of Johnny Carson, don’t miss Conan’s hilarious crack at the ‘Tonight Show’ after his short run as host of the late-night giant.
