Dave Letterman

Starting in 2003 through 2009 I wrote monologue jokes for the Late Show with David Letterman.

Dave was one of my all-time comedy heroes, so to hear him tell a joke that I wrote was the just about the greatest thrill of my life.

Below are the jokes that I wrote that Dave told on air in 2009. Use the following links to see my jokes that he told on air in earlier years.
