Leave it to Dave to give the BEST tribute to his friend of 38 years, Robin Williams last night on The Late Show With David Letterman. Dave gave a lovely personal, sweet yet funny remembrance of the man who made all of the now great comedians shake in their sneakers at The Comedy Store in Hollywood back in the 1970s, when they were all hungry to get a laugh or two.
Dave’s acknowledgement of Robin’s impact on the world–and on him personally is really worth the few minutes for you to watch…

I’m sure I don’t have to remind you of Letterman’s first show back after the horrors of 9/11. He made us all feel a little more united as a country by being the first late night host to return to his TV desk, and successfully talked us through our collective pain. If you have forgotten how emotionally moving Dave’s monologue was that night, I’m going to post it now. David Letterman is also one of a kind.
God Bless Robin Williams and may you finally feel peace, and thank you David Letterman, for being YOU.
