CARVEY, Dana 05

Longtime comedian and movie actor Dana Carvey will be featured in a video filmed especially for the Norfolk festival in which he pays tribute to the late Johnny Carson.

Carvey — who was a longtime cast member of “Saturday Night Live” and starred in, among others, the “Wayne’s World” movies — was also known for his impersonation of Carson. It was created out of his fondness for the longtime host of “The Tonight Show.”

The video was produced by Mark Pitta, one of the 20 comedians who will be participating in this week’s comedy festival, presented by Nucor Steel.

The Thursday and Friday performances also will feature host Phil Palisoul and headliner Caroline Rhea, along with 10 of the comedians competing in the festival’s professional stand-up competition.
