David Letterman's greatest jokes

Yardbarker Logo By Sean Keane of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 22: For 33 years, David Letterman was a constant, nightly presence on American TV screens, hosting "Late Night with David Letterman on NBC" for eleven years, and then captaining "The Late Show" on CBS from 1993-2015. Along the way he racked up 52 Emmy nominations, 12 wins, a stalker, a Kennedy Center Honor, an Oscars hosting gig, and a Mark Twain prize. Now, after taking a hiatus, moving to Montana, and growing a scraggly beard that any militia member would be proud of, Letterman will return to our screens in 2018 with his own six-part Netflix series. Let’s take a look back on some of Letterman’s greatest jokes, straight from the home office in Wahoo, Nebraska.
