Martin Short Remembers Johnny Carson’s Original Hollywood Home Game

Comedy legends play a little poker.

When you think of the Hollywood Home Games nowadays names like Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck come to mind. But former Saturday Night Live cast member sit and talks with the amazing Conan O’Brien about one of the original high-stakes home games…at Johnny Carson’s place.

Big names of the day like Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Neil Simon got together to play a few hands and a young and nervous Short was enticed to attend by being promised he couldn’t lose more than $600.

It may have been a different era, but attracting fish to the game is still the same.
