-and one time Johnny took a Percodan right before he went on and he started getting off on it-the old formula where you'd really get off on just one-and he said,"Whew..I..I took a pill..Percodan,,and I'm really feeling it now and,whew"(or something to that effect),and man....it was SO fucking funny!!!-I want to see that again it was so funny...
Did he start scratching his behind?

after being rejected by Carson for an appearance on the tonight show, howard went on a twenty year rant for the expressed purpose of humiliating the king of late-night. howard told his dad: when i become famous i'll be on the tonight show. howard's people made inquiries about a possible appea4ence, but were publicly refused by johnny, he said: he's not funny... i just don't get him...there's just not anything there...consequently, howard attacked carson, (a man he worshiped) his kids, wives, and the tonight show... it was relentless
No it's Howard's typical narcissism. Howard wanted to be on the show and Johnny turned him down. Word probably got back to Howard that Johnny didn't think he was funny. So Howard will hate him forever.
I don't know if it was recently or on a tape I was listening to, but Howard was saying how his mom always used to complain about Carson and she was the one who was would say how he treated comedians badly by not inviting them to sit on the couch. It sort of gives that whole rap a psychological/mother-issue twist.
Howchie's anger toward carson is like his hatred toward Amanda peet, it's illogical and stupid. All the late night guys (even howchie's beloved letterman) are doing his format, and not that well may I add. Carson was the champ, i was always impressed with how he read the jokes from the cue cards. You could hardly ever catch him looking at them!
Apparently I must spread something around before repping you again.
What an awesome, awesome documentary! Thanks for posting it.
There was a great pearl of wisdom from Carson in that documentary. It seems obvious, but when you look around it's clearly not to most celebrities. He said that an entertainer must get the people to like him. He restated it, and you could tell he really, really meant it, and that he was imparting something of real value; something that could save someone years of struggle. He said that was 80% of success in showbiz.
And it's a simple, basic lesson Howard not only never learned, but still actively fights against...................................while claiming to be a nice guy.
He's got two options: to actually be a nice guy, or to be a mean-but-funny dick.
Instead, he's a mean, unfunny dick jewgina.
All those icons he used to, and may still, rail against all had one thing in common: they were completely beloved. And because they were loved they were forgiven their transgressions.
Howard chose the "cast the first stone" route instead, and now he's getting pelted by them on the boomerang from every direction.
He's trying to out-...............smart? marble? misery? shame? lie? the basic human need for love and acceptance, rather than just admit he needs love and acceptance.
Carson's...................as well as Elvis'......................demons seemed much more wholesome than Howard even at his most "trying to be nice"-est, because underneath it all they had a decency and warmth and generosity, and they allowed their pain and flaws to see the light of day.
They were human.
Howard is something far, far below that.
The reason why the Carson documentary was so great was they had the people who were in and around his life.....................day-to-day co-workers, friends, at least one of his ex-wives, etc. Then they had all the comedians he helped/discovered/gave a career to. It was quite an impressive group of people: Seinfeld, Letterman, Leno, Romano, Shandling, among others.
Imagine the dreary freak show a Howard documentary would assemble: Bronk, Hein, Glassberg, Mund................
The funny thing about that is the only people who would be worth hearing from are long, long gone: Billy, Jackie, John, and Artie.
It's like night and day, who's left and who's (still) there. It's like Howard actually wanted every last drop of humanity and camaraderie obliterated from his universe.
