Former Ed McMahon home in Beverly Hills is on the market

The longtime home of the late comedian, announcer and game show host Ed McMahon is on the market in Beverly Hills at $4.6 million.

The sidekick to late-night legend Johnny Carson fought a much-publicized battle in 2008 to avoid foreclosure on the residence. The seller is a family friend of the McMahons who has made improvements to the house, according to listing agent Alex Davis.

The Mediterranean estate, with six bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms and 7,013 square feet of living space, sits on a third of an acre with a swimming pool in the Summit, a gated community.

McMahon died last year at age 86. His three-decade stint on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” (1962-92) ingrained the elongated introduction “Here’s Johnny” into the pop psyche. He hosted “Star Search” from 1983 to 1995 and appeared in films including “Fun With Dick and Jane” (1977).


Davis is with Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills.
