David E. Carter

Beginning in January of 1989, and continuing through May of 1992, David’s production company produced 13 comedy sketches for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Richard Friley was the man behind the camera and was the editing genius.


The comedy sketches began with Johnny at the desk introducing the concept. Then, the segments that we filmed (mostly in Kentucky, where I lived) were shown.  Two of the 13 segments we produced wound up on the 1990 Anniversary Show, showing Johnny’s favorite segments of that year.
