I spent the last six months interviewing writers, producers, crew members, and guests who worked on NBC’s groundbreaking “Late Night with David Letterman” in the ’80s. The oral history has been published as an e-book at Amazon Kindle Singles, which you can check out at the link.If you’re into the history of late-night TV and/or a nerd about comedy writers rooms, this is for you.

Today in old-school comedy and gap teeth brethren. If you have gap teeth, don’t go see a dentist—reblog this post instead and embrace your cultural status.

Fans of TV and comedy history may want to check this out.

At a time when cable TV was nonexistent and Saturday Night Live’stalent and ratings simultaneously took a nosedive, David Letterman’s12:30 a.m.talk show transformed comedy forever with its ironic obsessions and enabled a generation of writers to flourish.AND NOW…An Oral History of “Late Night with David Letterman,” 1982-1993 is comprised of dozens of original interviews with those who worked and guested during Letterman’s NBC stint—beginning with an odd precursor in a problematic10 a.m.slot, moving to the launch of the iconic Late Night with then-head writer (and then-girlfriend) Merrill Markoe, and ending with his final days at 30 Rock before heading west for CBS’s Ed Sullivan Theater…seven blocks away.
