499 viewsJohnny Olson does his mentalist character, The Great Marvello. This time around he divines the answers from questions in sealed envelopes without actually having seen the questions. Sound familiar? All he needs is Ed McMahon, a turban -- and a pretty good lawyer or two! (Actually, Steve Allen beat them all, having done that bit frequently on his late 1950's variety show.)
