    Loved this! I remember my Dad was a big Carson fan, saw Arsenio on the show, and got a VCR just because he couldn’t miss either show. Most out-of-character thing Dad ever did. Looking back, it makes perfect sense. No overlap but both satisfying entertainment.

    Great to see Arsenio :)). Carson also wrote jokes for David Letterman. Letterman revealed that after Carson passed. Stephen, you make this crazy time bearable. :). Thanks from Canada.

    Arsenio Hall’s Netflix special “Smart & Classy” is hilarious! Mr. Hall made episode 7 of “Just Another Immigrant” a classic. Cannot wait for the sequel to Coming to America…March can’t come soon enough.

    Awesome and Classic episode The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with Arsenio Hall. I was teenager running home after the lights came on to make sure I was ready for the Arsenio Hall Show. Thank you Arsenio Hall, you portfolio is and will always be apart of my history.

    The bark was so ubiquitous that it was forever enshrined in a bunch of early 90s comedies, my personal favorite being in Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

    People act like Arsenio invented the “barking” thing, but he didn’t. The Chicago Bears and fans were all doing doing it during the 1985 season. His show didn;t start until years later. And of course, the Cleveland Browns had the “Dog Pound” for decades.
