    @mondexbop he performs for your entertainment, for nearly 50 years, and sacrificed his personal life to do so. He worked out that false humility and anxiety about his success is worthless... which is a big difference between Dave and Jerry. Dave still has fear, Jerry knows what he’s about and he knows how to make his material work. We need more people like Jerry. Otherwise you are merely an underling, never truly convinced you can make a good decision.

    The vast majority disagree with you. Are they important? No. But they are certainly funny and you seem to mix up your inability to appreciate them with their importance to history. Was Goebbels important? Certainly nothing laudable can be said about him. But it’s unarguably true he was important.

    Letterman has gone off the deep end long ago. Like most that have more money than they know what to do with it, they think their lives are similar to everyone else and when they make it big, they then tell everyone else how they need to live their lives rather than just doing the dance they are paid to do and make people laugh. Now all I do is laugh at Letterman as he pontificates on his ivory chair.

It's funny that Leno got what he wanted from the network (twice) but in the end, he lost respectability and looks like a man-child. Letterman was always funny, genuine and unafraid to dissent.

    Seinfeld is one of the few people who has successfully beaten TV in his chosen genre and is very clear about the fact that he did that through hard work. He wasn’t lucky. He was doing standup at the top level for 15 years before doing the pilot. He made it. Dave has some personal quirks which Jerry cuts off quite hard... because it’s true. You don’t have to like Jerry but he’s got an honesty which you just don’t see in celebrity culture very often.

  • Kenneth Garcia

    The dynamic described here is interesting and actually quite characteristic of Dave. The aim of Dave's whole Schtick is to continually project that little matters or should be taken things seriously and this is a great clue to who Dave fundamentally is and what he thinks of himself. At moments when he transcends this avoidance to express genuine emotions, he engenders warmth and caring from his fans. The fanbase are essentially observer of this struggle in Dave to acknowledge genuine vulnerability. When Jerry, enormously successful himself, gives complements, these compliments are more potent and threatening to Dave's self-evaluation and challenge his deeper questioning of self-worth which he characteristically avoids. Despite his popularity and success, what he does, considering a deeper level, is avoidance of his lack of belief in his value as a person despite the enormity of evidence to the contrary: fame, fortune, popularity. He admits that he entered comedy not actually thinking that much of it. He was not filled with trepidation as many comics at the start of their careers who show up at the comedy store to do stand up. The sense is that he is winging it and he walks out on that tightrope denying that there is any danger to it. But as the reality is that there is danger in risk to anyone who cares about their life and avoiding bad outcomes, Dave's detachment to his vulnerability is directly associated with a denial of self-value. He must rely heavily on being distracted from this consideration of his self of a lack of value, which is what drives his walking the tightrope every day when he was on TV nightly. When Jerry reflects on Dave's accomplishments, Dave avoids acknowledging it with substantial discomfort because it threatens his ability to take the level of risks which distract him from the emptiness he experiences when not distracted. That's Dave Letterman.

    I think what Letterman is referring to, without actually saying anything, meaning what's held in his mind, is the fact he knows he kept score with others who did comedy and he never was happy or content in his work, and he held massive grudges toward others who had achieved what he wasnt able to, such as Leno being given the Carson show. Letterman has insecurities and inferiority complexes and so it WAS always about himself not humankind as Seinfeld says. He wasn't doing a damn thing for others, it was about and for himself, and there's nothing wrong with that, my god, it's the norm in every industry.

    The truth is that Letterman (particularly in the early years) did a great deal to discover and promote talent that had no other widely-seen outlet. A lot of people's careers were basically launched by appearances on his show. If for no other reason, viewers owe him a debt of gratitude. He was the only one not shoveling the same shit at us that the other talk shows promoted. Of course, of late that seems to have ceased, as he became the mainstream, and nobody has taken his place among the major talk show hosts in doing this. But it's no longer really required, as talent now has so many other outlets for gaining viewership.

    The ABCs of Salvation, or how to be right with God, and know for sure you're going to Heaven: A. A-dmit that you're a sinner. As it is written: There is none righteous, no, not one. Romans 3:10 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 B. B-elieve that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose again. He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross. 1 Peter 2:24 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures... 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 C. C-all on the Lord Jesus Christ to save you. If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:9-10 For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13 The moment you decide to "believe" (which means to put your trust in what Jesus has done for you) God saves you and your eternal destiny in Heaven is assured. You go from spiritual death to eternal life the moment you believe. Jesus said it this way: Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. John 5:24😀
