  1. With David Letterman s retirement approaching sometime next year, it s to be expected that there ll be new books cashing in on his career Brian Abrams is the first out the gate, and it s a nice surprise that it s not one of those flash in the pan knock offs Instead, this is a comprehensive inside history of Dave s Late Night show on NBC as told by those who wrote and produced it, as well as by network executives who had their own relatively distant but equally important perspectives.Abrams has p [...]


  2. This was a pretty solid, breezy read Interesting for hardcore fans of the original Late Night show where Letterman and his writing staff changed the face of comedy It definitely gets into the weeds, and there s a fair amount of self congratulatory musing from the writers and producers of the original show However, if you were one of those people who stayed up way too late watching the show, and recorded your favorite bits and skits to rewatch later, this is a rewarding read.


  3. I discovered David Letterman AFTER he moved to CBS so when I see old Late Night footage on YouTube its new to med a lot of fun This book goes behind the scenes into how the show developed and how the team of Letterman, Merrill Markoe, and the other writers, created the most memorable show of the 1980s I thoroughly enjoyed reading about how the Top Ten List came about, how Calvert Deforest felt about his fame, and how the writers ended up on the show and how they decided to leave And for 2.99 you [...]


  4. If you are a Letterman fan or just interested in TV, this well documented account of groundbreaking comedy is a must Longtime fans will recognize classic elements of the NBC show some premises alone will make you laugh out loud reading about them , and will appreciate the recollections from familiar names As an NBC page during some of those years, Late Night was hollowed ground to me and my coworkers Abrams reporting takes you behind the curtain that was couldn t be imagined even if you worked a [...]


  5. In this little book 85 pages Brian Abrams gathers together remarks from scores of those involved with NBC s Late Night with David Letterman which was on air following Johnny Carson from 1983 to 1990 For Letterman fans, and fans of late night television in general, this is an essential piece of work I downloaded it last night, read it in one sitting, and closed it with a smile I m sure we ll be deluged with books about the life and career of David Letterman, since he is retiring this year, but th [...]


  6. I ve been a fan of Letterman since the Morning Show This book brought me back to those heady days of irreverence at NBC Some f the stuff here I knew, some I didn t some I had forgotten I lieu of ever seeing those shows again, we have this book, a series of stories from those involved in the show writers, producers, guests If you remember that show fondly, you might enjoy this trip down memory lane.


  7. so so book that gives you a few glimpses into the arrival and rise of a notoriously private guy and the show that has been often imitated, never improved upon but thre s not much depth here a quick read, not bad kudos to abrams for pushing merrill markoe to the front throughout the book she s sadly overlooked by most people who talk about how funny late night is was.
