After over a month of tributes and farewells, David Letterman kept his send-off relatively short and sweet.
There was a star-studded Top Ten List of Things I’ve Always Wanted To Say To David Letterman that included Bill Murray, Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Peyton Manning, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Jim Carrey, as well as a special performance of “Everlong” by The Foo Fighters.
Outside of that, Dave respectfully spent much his time delving into nostalgia and thanking all of the folks that have been a part of his show over 30 years.
There was even a “day in the life” montage of what Dave goes through with his staff.
With over 30 years and 6000+ shows logged, it’s amazing that Letterman is still self-deprecating in his final remarks.
Just like that, just a little past midnight last night. The Late Show with David Letterman and an entire era of comedy comes to a close.
You can watch the entire finale here.
Of course, Dave also made sure to send his best wishes to the new guy, Stephen Colbert.
Speaking of which, does anyone have a countdown going for Sept. 8th?
