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.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    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.
