Carson’s Love Of Magic Not Smoke And Mirrors

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most people know Johnny Carson made great contributions to comedy but he also made a huge mark in the world of magic.

That’s why Carson will be honored at the 37th annual Academy of Magical Arts Award Show in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 6).

The “Academy Awards of magic,” as it’s known, recognizes people past and present for their contribution to magic and Carson will get a special tribute to him in the form of a video montage.

Awards show producer Dale Hindman feels the honor is well deserved for the former Tonight Show host since he’s “helped many magicians get their start” on his show and exposed magic to a large audience.

Still, since the late Carson can’t do much more for the magic world anymore, Hindman says celebrities such as Teri Hatcher and Jason Alexander are picking up where Carson left off and will be presenters at the awards show.
