    Would be great to revisit the great comedy pieces they wrote throughout the years.

    Always enjoyed this great bit with Paul nailing it pretty well.

    Not sure if this counts as best comedy writing (more like comedy location), but for those American's travelling today for Thanksgiving... The Airport Show:

    This not actually from Late Night but I don't know where else I'd put it.

    I thought his biggest strength was interviewing his guests. Not quite as good as the Master, J. Carson, but pretty close. He was really good at drawing them out and enabling their own humor.

    Every time one of those awful trailers for the new Cats movie comes up, I start singing that automatically.

    Love this one - the bear in the kitchen story. The banter with Letterman and Paul is always great.... "You think I'm making this crap up?" :) Miss those days watching this throughout high school.

    Letterman's feuds with Regis were always a fun watch too. Bringing in these side guests that went on for years were always entertaining. And who can forget his bits with Richard Simmons, lol
