Dave, I have to say, I am so incredibly honored to be on one of your very last shows…The first time I was on this show I was 13-years old, it was 1998 and I was so, so nervous, because for me – and still for me – coming on this show is like you’ve made it when you’re on Dave Letterman. That’s really the truth.
