On November 13, 1987, ten years after their divorce, Sonny and Cher appeared on Late Night with David Letterman. The duo stopped by for an interview and to sing their hit “I Got You Babe.”
During the interview, it is apparent that Sonny and Cher still care deeply for each other.
Comedian Andy Kaufman and wrestler Jerry Lawler had a feud going sometime in the 1980s. Looking back, it was obviously staged. However, that fact was not apparent at the time because DVRs and the Internet were not invented and VCRs had yet to become ubiquitous.
On July 29, 1982, Late Night with David Letterman gave the world the following incident. (Warning: The video is uncensored and Kaufman says some variation of f*** a lot.)
In the 80s, David Letterman used to host Late Night on NBC. Naturally when GE bought NBC from RCA, Letterman would want to “drop in and say hello,” complete with a fruit basket. However, Dave has trouble even entering the building. You will see the infamous GE Handshake and the rest of the hilarious results in today’s video.
I know for some people it is hard to believe that Johnny Carson has not hosted The Tonight Show in 20 years. While I am too young to remember Johnny, I am aware of his legacy. As a David Letterman fan, I constantly hear Dave talk about how Johnny is the only true King of Late Night. To remember Johnny and his legacy, here is his appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. Johnny even brings his own desk.
