David Letterman Pays Tribute to Robin Williams (VIDEO)


When news broke last week of the sudden and tragic death of comic actor, Robin Williams, Late Show with David Letterman was on hiatus.

Dave was back last night with a 10 minute tribute to his old friend that is as perfect as you would expect. The two had a friendship that went back 38 years to the days they were stand-up comics at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

The tribute is filled with stories about Dave and his fellow comics being blown away (and VERY intimidated) by Robin’s stand-up act. The segment ends with a touching compilation of appearances culled from the nearly 50 times the late comic appeared on the show.

“Beyond being a very talented man and a good friend and a gentleman,” says Dave, “I’m sorry, like everybody else. I had no idea that the man was in so much pain–that the man was suffering.”

Watch Dave’s tribute below.
