  1. He always seems like a guy who’s just kidding around, having a good time, kind of a smart alec but not really mean, etc.

    However, I heard a story (and maybe it’s an urban legend) from some average mope that was on the show once, when the cameras were turned off during a commercial, Dave completely ignored him, and just kept writing on his yellow pad over and over, “I hate my life.” “I hate my life.”

    I know, it sounds apocryphal, but that’s how I heard it…

  2. Being obsessed with David Letterman for many of my formative years, that story is true – although I can’t remember off-hand who the guest was.
