Carson introduced Karnak as the “all-knowing, all-seeing, all-telling, all-omniscient famous Seer, sage, and soothsayer.” Karnak made his grand entrance, received a warm welcome, and wasted no time in showcasing his incredible abilities. Holding envelopes that were hermetically sealed and kept secret even from the host, Karnak was ready to divine the answers to questions he had never heard before.

The energy in the studio was palpable as Karnak opened the first envelope. The room fell silent, allowing him to concentrate. However, after a brief pause, Karnak admitted he wasn’t picking up anything. It seemed even the all-knowing Karnak had his off days.

Not one to be discouraged, Karnak decided to take a moment to gather his thoughts and regain his focus. The audience eagerly awaited his next attempt. After regrouping, Karnak dove back into his trance-like state and successfully ascertained the answers to the questions.

In his usual style, Karnak effortlessly connected seemingly unrelated phrases. Whether it was a toilet that could see through walls or a suggestion to the butcher when buying a comet, Karnak‘s wit and quick thinking kept everyone engaged.

Throughout the segment, Karnak showcased his versatility, bridging pop culture and international references. From Yoko Ono to Whoopi Goldberg, he seamlessly tied these personalities into his divinations, leaving the audience in awe.

As the segment drew to a close, Karnak saved the best for last. Opening the final envelope, he predicted that someone’s favorite daughter would be featured in the NFL film’s “sack of the week,” leaving the audience with a mix of anticipation and laughter.
