Late Show Highlights

Phew, another late update, sorry about that. Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:

Here’s how cold it was today in New York City: they awarded the Nobel Peace prize to inventor of the Slanket. It was so cold today that Senator John McCain’s teeth were chattering…on his nightstand.

How about the New York Yankees? The Yankees look like they’re going to go from a four-man rotation to a three-man rotation, and they got this idea from Madonna.

Healthcare has now passed the Senate Finance Committee. I’m already covered; I gotta pretty good plan here at CBS. Anytime anything happens to me, and I drop dead, I get to play a cadaver on CSI. I go to the CBS doctor.

The desk segment started with an excert from Paul’s new book and ended with the funny Top Ten Signs Your Toddler Watches Too Much Television.

Tina Fey was the first couch guest. What’s not to like about Tina? She’s such a cool nerd. She just looks like the kind of person who would be fun to hang out with at a library on a Saturday night. Here is a funny clip about how old she was before she lost her virginity. Overall the interview was fun to watch.

Chris “Mad Dog” Russo was the second couch guest. Chris is a XM radio host, which probably explains why he was so loud and excited during his interview. I was concerned that he was going to quickly become annoying, but instead, he was charismatic and fun. Surprisingly, Chris’ energy level was balanced Letterman’s mellowness very well.

Mika was the musical guest. He was fine. My favorite part is that his drummer is female. Personally, I think a law should be passed stating that all rock and roll band drummers must be female.

A good show. I give it:
