Hello Kate, Goodbye Dave

Hello Kate, Goodbye Dave

Pope John Paul, President Ronald Reagan, David Letterman and I all began our professional careers within six months of each other.

Pope John Paul is now a saint whose qualifying miracle was making the pedophilia scandal disappear. Ronald Reagan’s spirit has taken up evil residency in his Badger State mini-me, Scott Walker. David Letterman [retired] on May 20.

Years ago my friend Jane, my comedy mom, who is now 95, told me to watch him. She still tells me who to watch. Recently she called and left a message, “Amy Schumer, right now, Comedy Central!” I thought Dave on his brief morning show was corny, juvenile, smartass and funny.

His first network Late Night show was on at 12:30 am. Thus began my history of frustration trying to tape things for later viewing. Back then it was real big plastic tape boxes, not your fancy airy fairy cloudy DVR technologies that I can’t do either. I thought I had taped Ray Romano’s ninety minute tribute to Letterman’s career, but instead got an episode of MSNBC’s Lockdown.

David Letterman and I were both born in 1947, many years ago, yet the number is still available if you’re scrolling for your DOB. I have enjoyed and identify with his increasing irascibility, made edgier in the sloshing sea of late night saccharine people pleasing. I’d grown accustomed to the bitter after taste of Dave’s show. It helped me sleep. I better get some melatonin. I’m still working and I need my rest.

If you love those kitty videos or even if you don’t, you will love Kate’s new show.  Sarah Palin saw it from her kitchen window.  It’s a little bit catty. The Brothers Kochamamiekoff.  Crime and Punishment: American Style. Pootie-poo to you too. MeOW! It’s a little bit pussy and not at all wussy.  More furies than furries and sure to get your dander up. From Hobby Lobby to buffer zones to shit-fit bits. Don’t cry me a river. Are you ready for hilarity?
