Late Show and Late Night Highlights
Anyone see The Late Show with David Letterman last night? The monologue was better than usual. There were four, count ‘em four, highlights:
Ladies and gentlemen here’s some great news: New York City murder rate is down 23%. That means some of you will make it back to your hotels. But the reason the murder rate is down 23% is simple: no one can afford ammo.
A lot of excitement (at the G20 summit), they’re giving away a door prize. This year it’s Iceland.
The economy is bad in England as well. Matter of fact at Buckingham Palace you know the Queen; she’s now working in the gift shop.
“But Woody,” you’re thinking, “I don’t have time to watch the whole show.” No problem. Just spend 2:30 minutes and watch the segment with grocery bagging champ Francisco Palacios.
Ray LaMontagne was very good as the musical guest.
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon started with a guest telling the monologue. I’m not sure who he was, but he was very entertaining, unlike the desk segments.
The highlight of the show for me was comedian Nick Thune. His set was very funny.
