    'Tonight' sidekick Ed McMahon dies in LA at 86
    June 23, 2009, 8:00 AM EST
    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ed McMahon, the loyal "Tonight Show" sidekick who bolstered boss Johnny Carson with guffaws and a resounding "H-e-e-e-e-e-ere's Johnny!" for 30 years, died early Tuesday. He was 86.

    McMahon died shortly after midnight at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center surrounded by his wife, Pam, and other family members, said his publicist, Howard Bragman.

    Bragman didn't give a cause of death, saying only that McMahon had a "multitude of health problems the last few months."

    He had to have the best job in America.
    Sit next to Carson and laugh all night.
    Drinking the entire time.

    RIP

    Ed McMahon - RIP

    O'Brien pays tribute to Ed McMahon
    06:24 PM PT, Jun 23 2009

    Conan O'Brien, host of NBC's "The Tonight Show," paid tribute to former "Tonight Show" sidekick Ed McMahon, who died early today, during the opening of his Tuesday night show.

    "This is obviously a very sad day," O'Brien said to the audience. "It is impossible I think for anyone to imagine 'The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson' without Ed McMahon. Ed’s laugh was really the soundtrack to that show. For 30 years Ed played his part perfectly, he played it with effortless joy, and sitting alongside Johnny, Ed was an indelible part of what I think is the most iconic two-shot in broadcasting history. There will never be anything like that again."

    O'Brien also showed several vintage clips of McMahon and Carson together and also showcased a clip of McMahon guesting on his former "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" program.

    RIP to a great man on television.
    We're bringing purple back.
