Doug on the Tonight Show (1984)

What better way to ease into the work week than with this 1984 appearance of Doug on Johnny Carson’s legendary Tonight Show?

As Johnny explains, Doug was in LA for two weeks of shows at the Ahmanson Theater in preparation for a later run on Broadway. As having never seen this clip before, I was amazed at how much Doug crammed into a short nine minutes. From grand illusions such as the “Firedome,” to a short interview with Johnny,  and concluding with some small slight of hand, Doug really gave it all here. 

So, journey back to a simpler time in late night TV. This was a time where Carson was king and Henning reigned supreme. We were just lucky to go along for the ride!
