The Letterman Effect: 15 Comedians Talk About What Performing on Letterman Meant to Them


Chris Destefano on Letterman

“It changed the way I looked at myself as a comedian. I have a lot more confidence that I was able to get on Letterman because of how notoriously difficult it is to be booked on the show.”

“I was in such a hyper excited state that I dont remember anything until him shaking my hand and saying good job and saying we’ll be right back.  But the memories I have before was that John Travolta was the other guest and he saw me before the show and he kept telling me how beautiful he thought my suit was.”
