Laughing Bird Steals The Show In Classic Johnny Carson Clip

Enjoy this classic Johnny Carson clip featuring a hilarious talking bird that stole the show.


For decades, Johnny Carson was the beloved television host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Some of the most memorable celebrity interviews can be traced back to this iconic show. And some of his most famous clips are when he invited animals onto the show.

Today’s scene features Johnny welcoming talking bird, named Howard, to the show. Birds can be such an underrated companion. There’s no doubt that these amazing creatures can truly be a gift from God.

They can provide friendship, love and lots and lots of laughter. And Howard is definitely living up to that reputation.

Just watch as he sits on Johnny Carson’s desk and tries to be part of the conversation. First, we see Howard do impressions, like a cat sound. But then, every time Johnny starts to talk, he lets out a loud ‘Ha, ha, ha.’

And the crowd was going wild. The trainer shared that birds learn words when they are very young. “They usually learn most of the things that they’re going to learn in the first year.”

Johnny is amazed at the talent of Howard and he keeps giving him grapes. This means that Howard continues to say ‘ha, ha, ha’ and it’s a hilarious exchange that has racked up over a million views on YouTube.

These are the types of clips that I love to watch time and time again. Who else remembers watching Johnny Carson?
