Look Back on Letterman’s 30 Years of Stupid Pet Tricks and Top Ten Lists

By

David Letterman has been a late-night host for 30 years yesterday, and it’s worth taking a look back through this collection of clips ranging from Merrill Markoe’s dog poetry (above) to Dave’s time working at Taco Bell. Or reading this piece about Letterman’s early TV career, starting with his morning talk show The David Letterman Show. May he have 30 more years in late night! Or, however many he wants, because dude deserves to retire whenever he feels like it.
