Ed McMahon's other sidekick gig: 'The Daily Show'

Posted on

Ed McMahon’s trademark “Heeeeeere’s Johnny!” is echoing through many memories this week. But I’d forgotten about the time the late TV personality lopped off that final syllable and simply called out, “Heeeeeere’s…Jon!” — as in Jon Stewart, of The Daily Show, which McMahon co-hosted for one very funny episode back in 1999. Check out Ed and Jon’s intro below, then head over to Comedy Central’s blog to watch the rest of the episode, including a special Stephen Colbert investigation into Sasquatch preservation law. Anyone else remember this? And can you believe how young everyone looks?
