Yesterday evening Robin and I attended the taping of this Friday's The Late Show with David Letterman. Just like the other seven times I've been over the last six years, it was a blast and a half. The guests are Rachel Ray, Frank Rich and Arctic Monkeys. Although Frank was there to promote his new book, Dave questioned Frank about his former job as the drama critic for the New York Times. I loved hearing his theatre stories. It's pretty heady thing sitting in The Ed Sullivan Theatre. And yes, Dave really does keep the theatre extra cold - perhaps below a very chilly 60 degrees. As Dave has said, "We like to keep our comedy fresh." Late Show just celebrated its fourteenth year on CBS and Dave and Paul Shaffer
have been together for 25 years. And yes, it's still fresh, in more than one way.
Coincidental Sighting: On Saturday night, Robin and I were walking near Columbus Circle when Paul Shaffer and his family walked by us.
