Johnny Carson? No; think earlier. Jon Stewart's impression of him? No. However, you have the right idea. 'Johnny' is an entertainment figure, and someone did an imitation of him.

Is Johnny the famous persons real first name? Yes! Hint: he was called 'Johnny,' not John, if that helps.

Johnny Weissmuller (sp?)? Tarzan yell relevant? YES! Guess I gave away too much?
*****************************SPOILER*********************************
When Dan's father was a young man, he went to see a Tarzan movie. During the film, when Weissmuller (Tarzan) opened his mouth to do the Tarzan yell, somebody down front did it first, better, and LOUDER. Pandemonium@ Order wasn't restored for 15 minutes. And Johnny had electronic help. Our Mr. Anonymous did it with just the power of the human lungs and vocal cords.

When Dan was a teenager, he went with a group of friends to see the movie Jaws. At the point when the titular shark first chomps down, he was inspired to emulate, if not imitate, Anon. He made a ringing retching sound, like BLEAAGGH!. The results were much the same.

Though they weren't dating at the time, years later Dan married the girl who had been sitting next to him in the theater. I like to think that was when she decided "This is the man for me!"
