Late Show Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:
You gotta be careful when you’re the New York Yankees cause everybody’s gunning for you. And they’re getting cocky. They win the first round of the playoffs and they’re getting cocky. Saturday night they let a hot dog vendor pitch in the ninth.
Over the weekend President Obama is down in Philadelphia, and he’s giving an address in front of a bunch of people, and a guy is streaking. You know what that means. He takes off his clothes, he’s running naked, he’s streaking in front of the President of the United States. They caught the guy, and listen to this, he’s going to have to spend the rest of 1974 in jail.
The Nobel Prizes are being given out. They gave out the Nobel Prize today in the category of Fiction. That went to Christine O’Donnell’s resume. The Nobel Prize for Economics went to Tiger Woods’ wife.
The Chilean miners who have been buried since, like, Labor Day, they could be out by tomorrow. The good news is they could be out later this week. The bad news is they’re not going to get their luggage ‘til Thanksgiving.
To give you an idea how long these 33 miners have been trapped down in that gold mine in Chili, they still think Conan O’Brien hosts the Tonight Show.
The desk segments included the Top Ten Brett Favre Excuses:
Jim Parsons was the first couch guest. He recently won an Emmy for his role on The Big Bang Theory. I’m a fan of Jim, so it was nice to see him on the Late Show again. The interview was good. Jim still seems really nervous when he talks with Letterman, but he was noticeably more comfortable than last time. Here’s a clip:
Geoffrey Canada was the second couch guest. He is in the new Documentary film Waiting for Superman. Geoffrey was great. He was intelligent, passionate and driven. It was a great interview filled with a lot of sobering information.
Mark Ronson & The Business Intl was the musical guest. They were fine, not my style, but fine.
Good show. I give it:
