Please Enjoy This Amazing (and Historic) Interview of David Letterman on Desus & Mero
Looks Desus & Mero have both just received a torch of sorts from late night legend David Letterman.
Nearly 26 years ago, David Letterman made an appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, a show that was being kept on an incredibly short leash at the time even though Letterman’s name followed “Late Night with” not even a year earlier. What transpired between Conan and Dave that night was the closest thing we’ve seen to a legitimate blessing from late night host to the other, generation to generation, class to class as well as a killer interview. Conan O’Brien is forever thankful to Dave for the appearance as you can see decades later on Conan here.
Last night, on the season 2 premiere (on Showtime) of Desus & Mero, an even more distinguished and stately David Letterman graced the studio where Desus Nice and The Kid Mero riff up a storm of jokes, bits, runs, etc. that make some of the most exciting things in late night in recent memory. Not only is the interview pretty fantastic (the Tarantino vs. Dave story alone is worth watching), but Letterman again gives his blessing (even much more explicitly this time around than with Conan) to Desus & Mero.
If anyone is making a timeline of late night history, please put a pin right here that might signify where late night is headed (Dave also voices this opinion FYI).
