    • While practicing for the Dundies, Michael dons his turban and notes that the act is "loosely based" on Johnny Carson's Carnac the Magnificant bit. However, Michael's act is pretty much an exact copy of that bit, where Carson would hold the envelope to his turban and recite the punchline to the joke before opening the envelope and revealing what the joke actually was.
