Late Show Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:
Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen. Please, settle down, we don’t have any Twinkies.
Twinkies is going out of business. Every day, when I was a kid going to school, my mom, bless her heart, would pack, in the lunch box, a container of Twinkies. I remember that vividly. I also remember, vividly, my open-heart surgery many years later.
Say good-bye to Hostess. That’s not just Twinkies, that’s Ho-Hos and that’s Ding-Dongs. No, those are the Kardashians, I’m sorry.
The comedy segments included the Top Ten Thoughts That Went Through Paul Rudd’s Mind When An Audience Member Vomited During His Broadway Show. It was read by Paul Rudd and was reasonably entertaining:
Jessica Biel was the first couch guest. She is the upcoming film Hitchcock. The interview was fine, but really didn’t do anything for me. I don’t think the problem was Jessica, she was pleasant and told an amusing story. I think the problem was Dave. His interviewing skills seemed off to me, and it prevented the interview from having any kind of rhythm.
Pete Townshend was the second couch guest. He was the lead guitarist and primary songwriter for The Who. The interview was terrific. Pete was cool, amusing and told some really interesting stories. Dave and Pete had a great rapport. Here are some clips:
Phillip Phillips was the musical guest. He did a nice job.
Good show. I give it:
