Joan Rivers Remembered By David Letterman In A Very Moving Statement

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadDavid LettermanJoan Rivers

joan rivers letterman statment

We are still so shocked that we've lost such a comedy legend.

Joan Rivers passed away today, and the outpouring of love for the late comedienne has been immense.

David Letterman, also a protegé of late night legend Johnny Carson, made a statement on the death of our favorite funny lady, who had been excommunicated by Carson after getting her own competing late night show despite having previously been his permanent guest host.

Here's what the Late Show host had to say about Joan's passing:

“Here’s a woman, a real pioneer for other women looking for careers in stand-up comedy. And talk about guts – she would come out here and sit in this chair and say some things that were unbelievable, just where you would have to swallow pretty hard… but it was hilarious… the force of her comedy was overpowering.”

She really was a one-of-a-kind comedic force of nature.

Rest in peace, Joan.

2014 08 19 08 17 01

While most of Hollywood has had a week to mourn the loss Robin Williams, one of his late night TV friends wasn't so lucky.

David Letterman was not taping new episodes of his show last week when the news broke about Robin's suicide. So, it wasn't until last night's episode of The Late Show that David was finally able to publicly grieve and remember his friend.

The 67-year-old talk show host sat at his desk and just spoke about his first memories of Robin being a star from the start, and how Robin even got David a small role on Mork & Mindy before he was really famous.

The latter part of the clip featured a montage of highlights from the almost 50 times that David had interviewed Robin, and the two are laughing uncontrollably in every one.

David remembered his friend, saying:

Emma Stone Has Ghosts Visit Her On The Regular! And She Is Familiar With Their…Goo!

| Filed under: David LettermanEmma Stone

Emma Stone always keeps it interesting!

In an interview with David Letterman, Emma talks about her encounters with ghosts, namely her late grandfather.

The incredulous late night host asks Emma to expand on her…uhm, unique experiences and she goes on to claim that her grandfather's spirit leaves her quarters as a sign! Talk about creepy!

It's kind of funny that Emma brought up ghosts with Letterman because in her most recent movie, Magic in the Moonlight, a romantic comedy directed by Woody Allen, she plays a psychic!

Besides Emma, you'll never believe what other celebrities believe in ghosts! To find out what other stars have been spooked…

Kiesza Takes Her Performance To The Streets For The Late Show! Watch It HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteDavid LettermanKe$haMuchMusic Video AwardsLate Night TVKiesza

Kiesza made her network television debut last night on The Late Show with David Letterman, and just like her MuchMusic Video Awards performance, she nailed it.

What really stood out, aside from the radio-friendly melody, was that Kiesza really seems to be an entertainer. She didn't just stand on stage and sing her song. She had a fully-choreographed routine that not only brought her into the audience, but brought her outside to dance on the streets as well.

The Canadian singer, pronounced kai-zuh if you were also confused on how to differentiate between her and Kesha, was on The Late Show as part of her press circuit ever since her music video for Hideaway went viral.

But Hideaway isn't just her first single, it's also the name of her EP, which came out this week!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

| Filed under: TV NewsDavid LettermanJoan RiversHIGHlariousLate Night TV

Just three days after Joan Rivers stormed out in the middle of an interview with CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield (watch the video HERE) there was a walk out in yet ANOTHER appearance by the legendary funny lady!

Only this time, SHE was the one getting walked out on!

Joan was promoting her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva on David Letterman last night when the always off-color 81-year-old made a joke about June Allyson wearing Depends adult diapers.

The crowd went wild! And Dave…went home!

The Late Show host got up, took his jacket off and walked off stage!

HA!

Joan was left to host the show herself. Obvi she was a pro after guest hosting The Tonight Show for so many years along with her own late night show on Fox.

With the stage to herself, Miz Rivers started talking about, what else, her dry vagina.

Don’t walk out on this clip, Perezcious readers! Press PLAY (above) to see the instant classic TV moment!
