Backstage at the Tonight Show: From Johnny Carson to Jay Leno By Don Sweeney, Ed McMahon (Foreword by) Cover Image
By Don Sweeney, Ed McMahon (Foreword by)


Don Sweeney was with the Tonight Show for nearly twenty years, and was one of the few staff members asked to remain when Jay Leno took over in 1992. With an eye for the eccentric, amusing, or downright bizarre, Sweeney's brief portraits offer a glimpse at celebrity from the other side of the curtain.
