Ed McMahon, whose nearly three decades as Johnny Carson’s sidekick on “The Tonight Show’’ and innumerable appearances as television pitchman and master of ceremonies made him one of the medium’s most ubiquitous figures, died yesterday. He was 86.
“My talent is making it seem I have no talent,’’ Mr. McMahon once wrote. “It took me years of hard work to convince an audience that I wasn’t working.’’
Even when someone lives to what is considered a ripe old age, it’s never easy to let them go, and we hope Ed — who had been battling a bunch of health problems — is in a better place.
He was so troubled as of late. Sad news. Thanks for posting and letting me know.
