BTWF: David Letterman auditioning for Airplane
December 18th, 2023 under David Letterman. [ Comments: none ]

Before David Letterman had his own talk show, he auditioned for Airplane. The 32-year-old’s audition in 1979 wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.


BTWF: David Letterman on Password Plus
October 4th, 2023 under Before They Were Famous, David Letterman. [ Comments: none ]

Before David Letterman was playing games on his talk shows, he was playing games on Password Plus. I love the interaction between the 32-year-old comedian and Allen Ludden during that 1979 episode.


Has David Letterman hit hard times?
July 25th, 2023 under David Letterman, Hard times. [ Comments: none ]

David Letterman is pretty much retired. And some people who are semi-retired get jobs at grocery stores to be social and earn extra money.

The 76-year-old talk show host was seen training at Hy-Vee as a stock boy. So has he hit hard times? Nope. He is part owner of RLL Racing and Hy-Vee’s No. 45 car, and it was part of the Hy-Vee INDYCAR Race Weekend at Iowa Speedway the other day. So he was there promoting the race. Varoom, varoom.

And that is a good thing because he is not suited to stock shelves even if they put an apron on him.


James Corden is visited by the Ghosts of Late Night Past and Present
April 28th, 2023 under David Letterman, James Corden, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah. [ Comments: none ]

James Corden said goodbye to late night television yesterday. But before he signed off from The Late Late Show, he was visited by the Ghosts of Late Night Present: Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, and Jimmy Fallon in his bedroom.

They instructed him that he cannot share the late night secrets with the world. But, they also showed him a glimpse of his future, thanks to the Ghost of Late Night Past, David Letterman.

And if that was not enough, we got a glimpse of what his life will be like in six months. And he is not going to be alone because Trevor Noah got visited by the same Ghosts.

This was a brilliant idea, and I am happy they all agreed to do it. But I have one question, where was Conan O’Brien???


BTWF: Whoopi Goldberg on Late Night with David Letterman
April 25th, 2023 under Before They Were Famous, David Letterman. [ Comments: none ]

Before Whoopi Goldberg was a late night staple, she made her talk show debut on Late Night with David Letterman. I love that she was talking about politics the same way when she was 28 in 1984 as she does today.
