Late Show Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:
Remember when we had a bedbug problem a coupla years ago? Now the bedbugs are infesting the subways. I’m calling out Mayor de Blasio: Look, pal, when you get back from vacation I want you to get those bedbugs out of the subway…and back into the hotels where they belong.
There was a celebrity benefit over the weekend. Guess who was there: Governor Chris Christie, and he was dancing. How many of you felt it?
President Obama was on vacation. He was up at Martha’s Vineyard and had to go back early. He had to cut his vacation short two days to go back to Washington. You know why? Biden had locked himself out of the White House.
This was the first Late Show since the death of Robin Williams. Letterman used the comedy segment to talk about the friend he’s known for thirty-eight years. It was very well done:
Later on in the show Dave did the “Top Ten Possible Names for Anthony Weiner’s New Restaurant.” It was juvenile, but decent enough:
Bruce Willis was the only couch guest. He’s in the upcoming film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The interview was fine. I always look forward to Bruce going on The Late Show because he spends most of his time talking about his newest “inventions” as opposed to promoting himself or his projects. This time was no exception, but it honestly wasn’t as entertaining as his previous visits. Regardless, I love and admire how willing he is to commit to the joke. Here are the clips:
The Gaslight Anthem was the musical guest. They did a really nice job:
Good show. I give it:
