I grew up with Johnny Carson. I was born in 1970 and as a child, I’d sneak into the living room to watch Johnny. I had to talk my parents into letting me stay up late. I personally connected to Johnny because he was very shy. He had to face overwhelming stage fright every night before he went on the air. It really helped me. I was so shy as a kid and knowing that this talk show host, a man who had dedicated his career to talking in public, was also shy. It made my own shyness not soo daunting. Thank you Johnny. We will miss you.
