It was there that Carson grew up and began developing his talent for entertaining. At twelve Carson found a book of magic and became fascinated by it. He ordered a magic kit and began practicing. He wanted to be a magician. Carson's first paid performance was at the Norfolk Rotary Club when he was fourteen years old. He had a magician's stand with the name "The Great Carsoni" on a black velvet cloth draped over the front.

Carson also performed for his mother's bridge club and the Methodist Church socials. Carson was in his senior year of high school when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, After graduation he enlisted with the United States Navy. He was never in combat, but during this time he would help entertain the troops by giving shows using his ventriloquist dummy, Eddie.

After the navy Carson returned to Norfolk and attended the University of Nebraska. He graduated in with a major in speech and a minor in radio. His final thesis an academic paper was on "How to Write Comedy Jokes. He was given his own show, which debuted on August 1, The Johnny Carson Show went on the air for forty-five minutes in the morning. He became known for using cheerful banter good-humored teasing while reading the news. His show was a success. Carson decided to see if he could make it in Hollywood, California.

He could not find a job for months. Finally, Carson was offered a job at KNXT to read the station call letters, the time, and the weather. The job did not give the fame or status he experienced in Omaha, but it was Hollywood and that was where he wanted to be. After a year Carson was given his own television show called Carson's Cellar. Many skits and characters that were later seen by millions on the Tonight Show made their television debut on Carson's Cellar.

Carson worked very hard at his job. He put in extra hours, working both in and out of the studio on his show. After Carson's Cellar went off the air, he became a game show host for Earn Your Vacation and a comedy writer for Red Skelton — His hard work paid off. He was once asked to fill in for Skelton when the comedian was injured in rehearsals. Carson impressed the television network management.

However, because of problems the network was having with writers and directors, the program was canceled after four months. CBS failed to renew his contract. Carson was left unemployed with a wife and three sons to support. Reproduced by permission of Archive Photos, Inc. He had to move to New York City for the job. New York was not as easy as Hollywood, but Carson kept working hard.

Slowly, Carson was making a name for himself again. The show moved to television in in New York. Allen hosted the show for two-and-a-half years, and was eventually replaced by Jack Paar. Several million viewers watched every night from Johnny Carson took over on October 1, The rest is television history. Over thirty years Carson developed perfect stage presence. His opening comic monologue an act read by one person and golf swing, his attention to comic details like timing, delivery, and gestures, plus his fair treatment of guests, made him a natural host of the most popular television show of the time.

Carson believed that if the guest sparkled, so would the show. Over the years many of the country's greatest entertainers, celebrities, and everyday people sat and talked with Carson. He was a major influence in helping new performers. Jay Leno eventually replaced Carson as the show's host. Carson's personality in his private life is very different from the personality he played on the television set.

On The Tonight Show Carson always seemed very relaxed and seemed to enjoy making casual chat with his guests. Outside the studio, Carson preferred to remain distant. He was almost shy and small talk did not impress him. Carson preferred to save himself for his audience. He has been divorced three times and often worked those experiences into his monologues.
