"Johnny Carson: Student of Comedy" was created in 2007 by two students from the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film (Josie Azzam and John Albrecht) and two students from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications (Trevor Hall and Justin Peterson), in cooperation with Nebraska Educational Telecommunications (NET). The film traces the rise of Johnny Carson from a young man in Norfolk, Neb. and a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to one of the great entertainment icons of all time. The four students received assistance from Jeff Sotzing and Carson Entertainment Group to provide rare footage and timely interviews with those who knew or were influenced by Johnny Carson, including Conan O'Brien, Dick Cavett, Jay Leno and David Letterman.
