An uproarious stand-up performance with Bonnie McFarlane, who was featured on 'Last Comic Standing' and who has appeared on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' and 'Late Show with David Letterman.'
In 1990, Johnny Carson announced he was retiring...and all hell broke loose. While NBC schemed, CBS dreamed, and the question on everyone's lips was 'Who will get Johnny's job?' Jay Leno thought he deserved it, David Letterman knew he had earned it, and everybody else wanted a piece of the action. Kathy Bates won a Golden Globe(R) for her performance.
Man on the Moon is a biographical movie on the late comedian Andy Kaufman. Kaufman, along with his role on "Taxi," was famous for being the self-declared Intergender Wrestling Champion of the world. After beating women time and time again, Jerry Lawler (who plays himself in the movie), a professional wrestler, got tired of seeing all of this and decided to challenge Kaufman to a match. In most of the matches the two had, Lawler prevailed with the piledriver, which is a move by spiking a guy head-first into the mat. In one of the most famous moments in this feud was in the early 80s when Kaufman threw coffee on Lawler on "The Late Show with David Letterman," got into fisticuffs with Lawler, and proceeded to sue NBC.
Originally released in 1984, this show features Martin’s Oscar®-nominated short The Absent-Minded Waiter (with Terri Garr, 1977); his full performance at the Universal Amphitheatre from September 28, 1979; and “The Comedians Segment” with Paul Simon, David Letterman, Alan King and Henny Youngman.

Most recently, Todd became a semi-finalist on NBC's "America's Got Talent." David Letterman has proclaimed Todd one of the "Top 5 Ventriloquists in the World." It doesn't get much better than that! "You just knocked us over! So funny and amazing!"--Penn & Teller
