That was roughly when I was first getting into him. I would have been about 10 or 11 I suppose. I remember Drew Barrymore flashing him, I think I'm remembering right that Giuliani was on that episode... It was the one with the "Happy Da" and "Birthday Ve" t-shirts.:lol:I was a Letterman fan, gosh probably 10-13 years ago.
He used to have solid-gold episodes like that very, very often but not so much any more.
I remember seeing him work the drive thru at McDonald's. "She's gone already, chief" :lol: Ahh... memories.
Back in the days of Joe G's pizza, the Hello Deli and Mujibur & Sirajul... those days seem long gone and I think most of the people who were fans back then have stopped watching. I remember the bit where he got a guy to just go around and around in the revolving door of a hotel until someone would stop him. Or the one where he would drive around yelling at people with a megaphone. All those sorts of things were great but he rarely does anything like that anymore.
But fuck it, he's an institution. I love David Letterman and even though his show is nowhere near the quality it used to be he can still make me laugh... which is difficult for any comedian.
Yeah, that episode just finished here a while ago. It wasn't very good. I liked the bit about the tic though... beats Adam Sandler.He's not bad now but he's trying WAY too hard. The Top 10 list needs to be maybe once a week if that often. It's gotten truly awful! I don't know if it was a rerun lats night or not, but he tried to give a humorous pictorial education on anaplasmosis. Um, SNORE and I'm a damn biomedical engineer!
I dunno... i guess it's a personal thing for me. I really like him and his style just really clicks with me... David Letterman is my fucking hero and I can think back as far as I can and he's always just been there. I can remember when I was 12 and my older sister and her boyfriend would watch Letterman and I'd sit up and watch it with them. I can remember coming home from my night job when I was 16 and watching Letterman. I can remember when I was unemployed and I would always try to get out of bed in time to catch Letterman.
For me it's not Christmas until he's got that meatball on top of the tree and he and Jay Thomas throw footballs at it. Also, this:
Anyway, that's probably enough of me talking about Letterman.
Yeah, that's what I meant about 'never being on The Tonight Show' or whatever it was that I said. I meant that The Tonight Show is on at 11:30 and I think he's better when he's on at 12:30 when no one's watching.Ferguson's stoner jokes crack me up and I've never touched the stuff. I love the puppets, especially the one of himself. I don't know that he's so much tied to CBS for comedic freedom as much as his 12:30am timeslot. I think NBC is desperate enough for ratings to let him do whatever he wanted, but he won't be leaving any time soon. It'd be nice if he were on earlier, mostly so I didn't have to stay up so late, but he would suffer GREATLY in the 11:30pm slot. He's said himself he isn't sure he even wants it.
OK but I've already lost interest in the whole thing anyway.I'll let you know when Leno does the car segment, how about that. I'm giving the man a fair chance.
I watch those videos on Leno's Garage... he even manages to make Bugatti's sound dull.
