Dave says goodbye tonight

LAUDING LETTERMAN

Leading up to the end of David Letterman’s historic 33-year run as a late night host, tonight on CBS’s Late Show, friends and colleagues have been paying tribute.

“He was, for me, and I think many comics of my generation, an incredible epiphany of how a talk show or how entertainment or how television could… for God’s sake, the man put a camera on a monkey.” Jon Stewart

“Not one single writer/performer in the last 35 years has had Dave’s seismic impact on comedy.” Conan O’Brien to EW

“I remember after 9/11, we needed somebody. The city was in shock….He said, ‘There is only one requirement for any of us and that is to be courageous, because courage, as you know, defines all other human behavior.’ We needed that.” Jimmy Fallon

“David Letterman, growing up, was my Jesus to the point where it’s embarrassing.” Jimmy Kimmel

“While I can still be freshly awestruck by his intelligence and his creative genius, I like his humanity even more.” Keith Olbermann
