    Bandleader Doc Severinsen, host Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon laugh it up on the set of the "Tonight Show."

    This week marks the 20th anniversary of Johnny Carson's last Tonight Show broadcast on NBC, and to mark  the occasion a local auction house has put some rare Carson memorabilia on the on line auction block.

    Among the items, a hand-written monologue that Carson prepared to open  his show and Carson's four drawer makeup case, featuring lots of lifesavers.

    There's also art work, drum cases that Carson received from Jazz great Buddy Rich and more.

    The bidding ends on May 30th. If you want to make a bid or just view the merchandise, you can see the entire Carson catalog at the Nate D. Sanders auction house web site.
