Groucho Marx “honors” Johnny Carson at his Friars’ Club roast, broadcast on The Kraft Music Hall on October 23, 1968. Six years prior (October 1, 1962), Marx introduced Carson on his very first Tonight Show.

Others there to “honor” the talkshow king were Don Rickles, New York’s then mayor John Lindsay, Ed Sullivan, Steve Allen, Dick Cavett and host Alan King.
