Late Show Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:
New York City, the greatest city on the planet, guess what, invested with mosquitoes now, West Nile mosquitoes. Well, here’s the problem, they’ve been breeding in those giant 16-ounce sodas.
Anybody watch the All-Star Game last night? There’s nothing more entertaining than watching your favorite players give 50 percent.
It’s still sad when you think about Tom Cruise and Katie Holms. She’s very excited cause now she’ll be able to wear high heels again.
The desk segments were Steve Martin’s NYC Park and Top Ten Superhero Pet Peeves. Both were pretty good:
Bryan Cranston was the first couch guest. He stars on the show Breaking Bad. The interview was really good. I like Bryan a lot, I think he’s a terrific actor who comes across as a decent and sincere person off-camera. He puts so much of himself into telling stories and being funny that’s it’s hard not to want to share a long meal together. Here’s a clip:
R.A. Dickey was the second couch guest. He’s a pitcher for the New York Mets and author of a new book. The interview was great. Dickey was very personable. Baseball isn’t my favorite sport, but watching Letterman’s enthusiasm and listening to Dickey’s explanations about pitching I couldn’t help but be entertained. Here’s a clip:
Zac Brown Band was the musical guest. They did a really nice job.
An almost perfect show. I give it:
