Will David Letterman Also Leave A Legacy Of Creepiness?
David Letterman is known for a lot of things, and creepiness should be one of them. A television host of 33 years, Letterman is one of the last hosts familiar to the waning population that watches talk shows. He’s beloved for his ability to make light of any situation, but more so to be able to laugh at any situation including himself. As the New York Times puts it: “Even after more than 30 years, Mr. Letterman never lost his arch, ironic self-awareness; he did not sink into the easy, quid pro quo conventions of late-night talk shows, but kept defying them.”
Even so, this supercut of David Letterman is pretty gross. Letterman certainly has a bit of a checkered past, including scandalous tales of alleged sexual harassment and confirmed affairs with his staff members, and after watching these clips, it’s hard not to experience a bit of skin-crawly doubtfulness of his character, and of those who laud his career without question. Will David Letterman also leave a legacy of creepiness? That still remains to be seen.
