THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN

1999
- This was a terrific appearance, primarily because Dave freaked out about celebrities throwing hissy fits when they're ridiculed. Dave was in top, cranky form. Jon showed off his true talents by egging Dave on in a subtle and hillarious way. It was classic.
  Jon's observations on how Dave greeted him.

Spring of 2000
- This aired shortly after Dave returned from his massive bypass surgery. The show included a sketch (largely silent, which is why we don't have sounds from it) in which Jon gave Dave a heart in a wet paper bag. Dave thanked him and said he didn't need it. Jon, worried, leaves the stage and returns the heart to Tony Randall.
