The Master

Written by

David Letterman has made me laugh more than any other human being alive. This is a man who I have been watching since I was 8 years old. No matter what was going on in my life, I would  turn to Dave most weeknights, the way one might turn to an old friend at the end of the day. Whenever I experienced joy in my life, Dave's face and jokes would make that joy all the more sweeter. When I was going through the worst periods of my life, Dave would take my mind off my troubles and for the first time that day, I would laugh. For 25 years Dave has been a part of my life. Tonight, this will be the first night since 1990, there will never be a new episode of David Letterman for me (or us) to look forward to.

Many, many articles have been written about Dave and his show over the last few months and they all pretty much include the same words: "groundbreaking", "revolutionary", "brilliant," "genius", "pioneer", "trailblazer" and "master". I'm now going to write something about Dave that you won't read in any other article, anywhere: David Letterman changed my life and I wouldn't be who I am today without him.

And now, here is why David Letterman is rightfully referred to as fans and audiences as "The Master." (Warning: These clips are totally NSFW. Well...enjoy!)
