About Johnny Carson's Real Height

Johnny Carson's height is listed as 5 feet 10 inches tall over the internet -- which seems correct since Johnny looked around an inch taller than Sylvester Stallone who was 5 feet 9 inches tall in his youth and several inches shorter than David Letterman who is 6'2".

But Johnny was born in 1925, and people were shorter back then, so he was probably slightly above average tall after all (for his time). Johnny would have probably looked around just as tall as someone like Brad Pitt (5'11") back when Johnny was a young man.

One reason why Johnny could have looked short on stage was because Ed Macmahon, his sidekick was around 6 feet 4 inches tall, so he made Johnny and others look shorter.

The real height of Johnny Carson was

5 ft 10 in (178 cm)

Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.
