Kenmac said:Yeah, I heard about it this morning on the radio. His real name was Calvert DeForest and he could be downright hilarious. I remember back in the "Late Night" days there was a segment where they had him out in a bus station interviewing people with a hand held mic and as he was asking the person a question he'd hold the mic towards the person instead of waiting until he'd finished the question and he kept doing this over and over. I don't think I've ever seen Dave laugh harder than he did when that segment was on. BTW I found it on YouTube. Here's the URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQ7PMG8c2gI R.I.P. Larry "Bud" Melman. :frown:

That skit with the mic is funny. Man, it's hard to remember that Letterman was actually funny once upon a time.
