David Letterman

Here's The Thing with Alec Baldwin show

Summary: <p>David Letterman began his <em>Late Night</em> gig as a self-described “gap-toothed, unknown smart ass.” But thirty highly successful years later, Letterman’s comedy formula has evolved: he no longer attends all the meetings or makes all the decisions and stupid pet tricks are a thing of the past.  </p> <p>Letterman began his television career as a weatherman, but moved rapidly up to anchorman and talk show host.
