Oh Hello held its final curtain call on Broadway last night and all lucky enough to attend the final performance were treated to one last special guest- David Letterman.
Twitter user Samantha Bell captured the moment with a photo she posted on her account, which of course is cheating but then again, don’t we all deserve to enjoy?

Oh Hello, which stars John Mulaney and Nick Kroll as their Kroll Show characters George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon, welcomes a special guest at every performance to come up on stage and be pranked by receiving a sandwich containing entirely too much tuna. The “too much tuna” bit which started out as a Kroll Show bit starring our own Jeffrey Gurian, became a focal point of the Broadway show, with the boys welcoming up various comedy and New York City legends. Throughout the run of the show some of the most memorable guests have included Alan Alda (the celebrity guest on opening night), Donald Fagen, Judd Apatow, Ben Stiller, Martin Short, Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Sedaris, Gina Gershon, Amy Schumer, Seth Meyers, Conan, Anthony Atamanuik as Donald Trump, Pete Davidson, Billy Eichner, Paul Rudd, Leslie Jones, Jim Gaffigan and even The Fonz himself, Henry Winkler had all enjoyed too much tunyfish with George and Gil. So how do you end it all after having such a spectacular run? The elusive, David Letterman. According to Twitter user Marika Brownlee, David Letterman said from the stage “How is this show closing?”

The penultimate guest during the matinee show was T.J. Miller according to Joe Pollack and others on Instagram.
Social media was full of love and admiration and affection for the show pending the final performances with many thanks and well wishes. We’ve also loved having Oh Hello on Broadway for the past few months and hope every one of you had a chance to check it out. For those who didn’t and for those of us already missing our favorite seniors, we hope they’ll be back soon. With such a great Broadway run, can Hollywood and a feature film be far behind?
