    Ooooh what a nice surprise! DL is my all time favorite late night talk show host. I was just thinking of him I read a story about the Academy having a tough time choosing who was going to host the Oscars this year. They asked Steve Martin but he couldn’t. I thought of David because I don’t care what anybody says he did s great job when he hosted.

    I got to see him live when he was doing stand up. Before he was famous he opened for Dave Mason at Harrah’s South Lake Tahoe been a fan ever since.

    The “Cocaine Bear” reference reminded me of Dave’s “Can A Guy in a Bear Suit …” bits.

    Same old Dave! But he has warmed up a little in his old age. He used to be more distant with people but I think age has shown him how nice it can be to let people in. Glad he’s still up and around!

    I need more thumbs for this! Dave hasn’t missed a beat – as funny and quick witted as ever. His humor is in a category of its own, and he had me laughing from the start.

    Why did David choose to grow that (although beautiful) beard after he retired?
