The Late Show With David Letterman Honors Robin Williams With a Truly Moving Tribute [VIDEO]
One of the first things that popped into my mind when I heard that Robin Williams died was, how is his TV pal David Letterman going to react? Dave was on vacation that week but when he returned to the airwaves, Dave devoted a whole segment of his talk show to paying tribute to the late actor and comedian. You’ll laugh and also, you’ll be moved.
David Letterman and Robin Williams were friends for over 38 years, and Dave reminisced by playing clips from several of Williams’ appearances on his CBS and NBC shows. Dave even poked fun at himself by showing footage from his cameo on ‘Mork and Mindy’.
As he wrapped things up, Dave mentioned what so many like me have been wondering over this last week…that he must pay tribute to this great man. And he did gracefully.
