On May 20, Bill Scheft was here with Susie Essman as part of our Funny People series to talk about his past career as the head monologue writer for The Late Show with David Letterman, his new book Everything Hurts, Richard Simmons, the difference between his mother and father, and more. Bill took to his blog to write about the appearance: (http://billscheft.tumblr.com/post/111115049/the-92nd-street-y-post-game-show)
“You know, when everyone tells you it couldnt have gone any better, when your agent (who reps among others, the great Michael Chabon) tells you she doesnt remember a better book event, when someone leaves a message and says she wishes the interview had been three hours rather than an hour and a half, even the self-loathingest alternator in your hard-wiring has to admit that things went okay. And by you, I mean Jay McInerney”
It was indeed a great event, and the video highlight here features a few stories that Bill did not include in his recap. One was about Richard Simmons on The Late Show with David Letterman, coming out on stage all oiled up, back when Dave still smoked cigars. Simmons asked in his flirtatious ways, David, will you teach me how to smoke a cigar? Skip to 3:50 in the video to hear the punchline that had everybody in stitches.
Next up in our Funny People series is Kate Clinton on Jun 11, (http://blog.92y.org/index.php?URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.92y.org%2Fshop%2Fevent_detail.asp%3Fcategory%3DFunny%2BPeople888%26productid%3DT-LC5FP14) when she will be here with Randy Cohen, better known as the writer of The Ethicist column at the New York Times.
