A top 10 list could easily be filled with reasons why David Letterman has ruled late night television for 25 years. To name a few - Stupid Pet Tricks, viewer mail, nine Emmy awards and dropping objects off buildings. None of it would be possible without Letterman’s distinct blend of sarcasm and unpredictable humor. Letterman began his career as a news anchor and weatherman for an Indianapolis television station. Sitcom writing and stand-up brought him to Los Angeles, and in 1982, he began hosting NBC’s “Late Night with David Letterman.” Heavily influenced by Johnny Carson, Letterman launched a new show when his mentor retired, and CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” premiered in 1993. The show has produced many notable moments in its run, including Letterman’s quintuple bypass in 2000 and his interview with Dan Rather following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
David Letterman is the ultimate host, which he’s proven behind the desk each night and at the podium of the Academy Awards. TSE can help you arrange for a David Letterman appearance, David Letterman endorsement or David Letterman speaker engagement at your event.
