Apatow was part of the team entertaining the troops in DC at the 75th Anniversary of the USO. Everyone was there, including the President and First Lady, but Apatow was most excited to run into Letterman backstage “He’s like our bigfoot” Apatow said, excited not only to have a sighting, but to actually get to pose in a photo with Letterman as well as Mike Birbiglia, Kristen Schaal, and Jon Stewart who was hosting the event. It was not only a rare Letterman moment – it was Bearded Letterman- somewhat rarer and cooler.
Apatow insists he kept it cool, or at least semi-cool, but was really excited. He said he did Letterman’s show once, but hadn’t ever been back, so he was way more excited to see David Letterman, than the President.
