Ed sold my mother a vegamatic on the board walk in Atlantic City back in 1950.

I guess his real award is that his back hanging with Johnny again at the Tonight Show in the sky.

I learned to speak perfect 'announcer' by listening to Ed on the Tonight Show. He was very precise. Great voice.

In all the articles about Ed, nobody mentioned that he stared out as the clown on Super Circus.

Actually, in the very first article in this thread, it says that Ed got his start on television playing a circus clown on the 1950-51 variety series "Big Top."

Is that what you are thinking of?
