Johnny Carson Guru Bill Zehme on The Interview Show

Bill Zehme interviews the people who don't do in-depth interviews with anyone else: Frank Sinatra, Johnny Carson, Woody Allen. He has collaborated with Sinatra and Hugh Hefner, written a biography of the elusive Andy Kaufman and is now in the middle of writing an epic Johnny Carson bio. Here, he talks with The Interview Show about Carson, today's late-night talk shows and more.

(Filmed Feb. 1, 2013 at The The Interview Show Fifth Anniversary Show at The Hideout in Chicago.)
