Ed McMahon, comedian, gameshow host, announcer, WWII Marine fighter pilot, and sidekick to the legendary Johnny Carson for 30 years, died this morning. He was 86. MSNBC reports:

Publicist Howard Bragman says McMahon died early Tuesday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center surrounded by his family. Bragman didn’t give a cause of death, saying only that McMahon had a “multitude of health problems the last few months.”

Not to get too personal here, but one of my favorite memories as a kid is visiting my Dad’s family and my cool aunt letting me stay up to watch Johnny Carson. For once, I really have nothing bad to say. Except of course for your mom. She really needs to stop calling me.
