I just received a check in the mail, from the company that produces The Late Show with David Letterman. I had emailed three jokes and--- Dave used one. The weird part: I am more proud of this than the 12 grand I received a few weeks ago, more excited than just about any money I've ever earned, ever. I swear to goodness.
I am a high school graduate. College too. And law school. Did grad work, wrote a masters thesis, composed several pop songs and even co-wrote a play. I am finishing the second of three novels, but... Dave used a joke of mine!
I was sitting with my bro, Bela (for whom I've written loads of material), and Letterman goes into the joke, MY joke. And I got all stupid and shit, turning-up the volume and shushing the random who was hanging around after a late nite swim.
I have designed illusions, produced live shows, written all kinds of special material here in Las Vegas, but, did I mention- David Letterman used a joke of mine.
I'm just sayin...
