A Bel Air mansion that once belonged to “The Tonight Show” sidekick hit the market this week.

Ed McMahon’s former home was listed for $12.5 million the Los Angeles Times reported. The three-story home of the famous “second banana” was built in 1934.

The estate on West Sunset Boulevard spans more than 20,000 square feet and includes a gated motor court. About 7,600 square feet of living space includes six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a galley-style kitchen, an indoor-outdoor living room, and an elevator. Two terraces offer views of Century City, and the outdoor space includes a fountain, patio, a pool and a spa.

The property last sold for $2.7 million in 2004. Levik Stephan of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has the listing.

The late comedian made real estate news in 2008 when he fought to avoid foreclosure of a different home in the Beverly Hills Post Office area. Real estate mogul and aspiring politician Donald J. Trump offered to buy that 7,000-square-foot property and let McMahon continue to live there, but the home eventually sold to another investor.

McMahon died in 2009 at age 86. He was a comedian, game show host and actor. He famously enjoyed a 30-year tenure as talk show sidekick for Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show,” where he coined the phrase, “Here’s Johnny.” [LAT]Gregory Cornfield
