Strips on Letterman


Fey strips down to her Spanx underwear on the Late Show with David Letterman. 

Because this is my last time wearing a fancy dress on a talk show — and conforming to gender norms out of respect for you — my gift to you is I want to give you the dress, you can keep it.

Scarlett Johansson interview

InterviewMusic Performance

Johansson appears on the The Late Show to promote her upcoming movie Avengers: Age Of Ultron. She talks about lover for Letterman and her first appearance on his show as a child.

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.

Paul Rudd interview


Rudd appears on The Late Show for promoting his movie Ant-Man. He talks about how he was a member of a Letterman fan club as a child.

About 30 years ago, when you first started the show, back when the [Kansas City] Royals were in the World Series, I joined the David Letterman fan club…What it included was a pin, a collapsible drinking cup, a sponge that – if you put in water – would grow, a back scratcher and a balloon.

Michael J. Fox interview


Fox appears on The Late Show to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease. He talks about his own struggle with Parkinson’s, and the hunt for a cure.

To be kind of corny about it, once you accept it, and you learn about it…. and realize you are in a position to do something about it, and to make a difference and to help, well then it’s just, like, quit your bitching and get on with it.

Bill Murray interview


Murray appears as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman and shares three memorable stories about crashing a bachelor party, celebrating his birthday with strangers, and driving a taxi. He also talks about the possibility of making a female version of the Ghostbusters movie.

I think you’d want to have some funny girls, and you’d want to have some action girls. You know, I just of girls that I’ve worked with lately, like I worked with these two girls. I worked with Melissa McCarthy, I think she’s very funny.

Tom Selleck interview


Selleck returns as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman. He talks about his recent fashion shoot for GQ, and shares how he handles secret grudges on some Hollywood celebrities.

I don’t see any reason to hold a grudge. I mean, a lot of people make mistakes – we get out here, you know, we try and be reasonably entertaining and you’re pushing the envelope. Sometimes, you say stuff, and people have said stuff to me. And I only hold a grudge secretly.

Miracle performance

Letterman chokes up as he introduces the Foo Fighters performance on The Late Show with David Letterman. The Fighters perform Miracle, which Letterman reveals was playing when he and his young son learned how to ski.

Lo and behold, it’s me and it’s Harry coming down this mountain. The video is stunning because the kid couldn’t be cuter … and the music the guy chose to put underneath the ski video is the song you’re going to hear now from the Foo Fighters.

Ted Danson interview


Danson appears as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman to promote CSI and the Oceana Organization. He talks about responsible fishing, adding humor to CSI, belittling former castmate Woody Harrelson’s achievements, and their drunken Cheers finale.

They brought us to the bar to do press, and after being apart for like six months, the show had been over, and we were all getting to see each other after six months. And they brought us to the bard about five or six hours early, so we were hammered! Hammered beyond belief. I think Kelsey was the straightest of us all.

Jim Gaffigan interview


Gaffigan appears as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman to promote his latest book, Food: A Love Story. He also talks about meeting an old man who drinks gravy, his dislike for seafood, and his donut dilemma.

Sometimes, I will get back to my hotel room, and in my hotel room there will be a box of donuts. And I’ll look at the box of donuts and I’ll think “I’m not, you know, not going to eat those.” That will be rude, they were a gift, Dave.

Kelly Ripa interview


Ripa appears as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman and talks about her strong-willed daughter, her accidental “butt selfie” to her in-laws, and the struggles of handling the extra-large iPhone 6 with her small hands.

We got my father-in-law for his birthday an iPad. And I don’t really know about the cloud, I don’t really understand where it comes from, but we’re all operating under the same…it’s the same cloud. And I was sending my beloved husband who was away in L.A. shooting a show, I sent him a cute, adorable butt selfie in my underpants.

Denzel Washington interview


Washington appears as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman and talks about the possibility of being James Bond.

What happened was someone calls, like a talks radio show – I think I was in London, I was somewhere in Europe. And they said, “Would you want to be the next James Bond?” And I said, “Yeah, sure, why not. In fact, let’s start a campaign.” And you can’t say things like that, they started a campaign.

I got him to watch all of his movies. We sat on that boat – John Q, Man on Fire, Malcolm X – we watched them all. And what’s great is that you get the commentary.


I was good, too. I was like, “Wow, I’m good!”

Moody McCarthy stand-up

McCarthy appears as a stand-up comic on The Late Show with David Letterman. He talks about his dislike of flossing his teeth, meeting his wife online, and some tips on how to save money when planning a wedding.

It’s true, we did meet on the Internet. We didn’t how our parents would react to that, so we told them we met at the University of Phoenix.

Steve Buscemi interview


Buscemi appears as a guest for the first time on The Late Show with David Letterman to talk about how he almost got into the show in 1994. He also shares his experience being a New York fireman during his early days as a stand-up comic.

Engine 55 is on Broome Street, and so we covered Little Italy and Chinatown and Soho and the Lower East side. Certainly in the early 80s it was probably busier than it is now, but I missed the heyday of when it was super busy in like the 60s and 70s.

Kristen Wiig interview


Wiig guests on The Late Show with David Letterman to talk about her upcoming film with Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. She also describes the “hippie” culture of Asheville, North Carolina, where they filmed some of the scenes. She also tells Letterman about her father’s reactions to her intimate scenes in movies.

I try to tell him the scene before, so he should go to the bathroom or something, because it’s uncomfortable. But the sex scene he was most uncomfortable was MacGruber.
