Late Night With David Letterman: The Book by David Letterman,Merrill Markoe

This is the David Letterman that I want to remember - goofy, gap-toothed, and still somewhat in disbelief that he somehow got control of 60 minutes of late night television. And before he dumped the awesome Merrill Markoe - what was he thinking?. Feb 26, 2008 Greg rated it it was amazing.

Yes, after trashing William Faulkner I’m going to praise David Letterman. Fred is forever awestruck by the beauty of the sea. Frank blows his nose on his hand.

Everyone knows that Merrill Markoe just wrote a book called Cool, Calm & Contentious. Perhaps you can tell by the cover that this book was published in 1985 (also: there are some Tip O’Neill jokes). But: it captures a lot of what we might now refer to as Late Night High Ironic and at the time was referred to as confusing to anyone not accustomed to constantly adjusting their point of reference

Merrill Markoe was the co-creator and original head writer of Late Night With David Letterman. On this, the eve of the finale of a show I had a hand in creating, I have been repeatedly asked to offer a few thoughts. Toward that end, I have compiled the following group of clips.

Merrill Markoe first met David Letterman in the late seventies when the two were stand-up comedians in Los Angeles. They worked on a short-lived CBS variety show starring Mary Tyler Moore, and then the failed pilot for Leave It to Dave, a Letterman talk show that never aired. In 1980, Markoe wrote for The David Letterman Show, an NBC morning show that lasted only through the summer and fall of that year. NBC finally found a more successful spot for Letterman on its schedule when Late Night With David Letterman premiered in 1982. The show aired at 12:30 .

Merrill Markoe was the original head writer and co-creator of the iconic, groundbreaking early years of "Late Night With David Letterman. The native New Yorker cut her teeth working for the creator of the show "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" and at Letterman's brief-lived morning show before the 1982 launch of "Late Night. Markoe was responsible for some of the program's key comedic ideas, including the immortal Stupid Pet Tricks

A collection of some of the show's most popular skits and segments, including "New Gift Ideas," "Dave's Bookmobile," "Modern Etiquette," and "Dave's World of the Future"

This book is ground-zero when it comes to ironic, non-sequitur comedy. There was not much that came before that could match the content found here. I read this book at my friend's house back in the 80's, and after that, I started watching Letterman on a nightly basis. I had not looked this book for 30 years, but I bought a copy last week on a whim. Wow. I can't even put into words how much the comedy pieces here meant to me as a kid, and how much they helped form my sense of humor and world-view that still keep as an adult. I really can't believe that this book is not more of a collector's item, nor can I believe there is only one review here. If Letterman meant anything to you in the 80's, you should get a copy of this book.
An historic and hysterical look at LATE NIGHT with Letterman. It might be off the air but I've got the book!
This book is AMAZING.

I am a teacher and use it for numerous classroom activities.

It aligns to all Common Core standards as well as k-12 math and language arts expectations and objectives.
