The Comedian Who Changed My Life Is David Brenner


The Comedian Who Changed My Life is a series where comics talk about, you guessed it, the comedian who changed their life.  

Hi, this is Gary Gulman.  And I would say that the comedian who changed my life would probably be David Brenner, who I first saw as a kid when he was on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.  And I just adored that observational humor.  And then as a professional comedian, when David  Letterman was out with the Heart Attack,  he hosted the Letterman show and I was his comedian guest, so that was a pretty good circle that connected there.   So he changed my life in two ways.  He got me excited about comedy and then got me my first Letterman.  Yeah, David Brenner.  I love that guy.
