My Favorite 10 Minutes of David Letterman… Ever.

This interview was my favorite ten minutes of late-night talk show ever… this spontaneous, unpredictable David Letterman interview with Steve Martin about Roxanne, Bill Murray, and the fine art of pencil-throwing.

“And if you’ve ever been on the floor of a context…”

Oh, how I miss THAT Steve Martin.

It’s also cool to see the commercials that came on during the break. And to consider that some of Dave’s most creative stuff took place during the writers’ strike.

    This must be a rerun. Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Big both came out in 1988, but Roxanne — the movie Steve Martin is promoting — came out in 1987.
