Anybody ever seen a Letterman/Leno/Kimmell/Fallon taping live?



Or any other late night show?

If so, how was the experience?

I saw Letterman as well. Around 2006 when Bill Murray was the guest. It was a whole bunch of meh

Letterman. Waited all day to get. Most memorable part was that it was very cold in the studio.

it was just boring, unfunny, and pointless. cool to do for an "experience", but if I could go back, I'd find much better ways to spend a couple hours in NYC if I had a chance. the thing I remember most about it was how desperate all the workers were to get people to laugh and cheer loudly. I understand that's their job and they don't want a dead crowd, but it was so lame.

Freezing.

I did get to see Jack Hannah which was kind of cool.

Letterman is a giant douche now. Can't believe I used to like him.

Bill Maher/Politically Incorrect circa nineteen hundred and ninety eight. Ice Cube was a guest. Got tickets from some dude handing them out in front of the Manns Chinese Theater.

i could see this, but i cut them some slack because it's tough to come up with all new knee slappingly funny material every single day of the week. That's why I have so much respect for Jon Stewart and his writers. Pretty rare to see a flat out bad episode of the daily show.

My parents went to a taping in 1997. They won tickets, somehow. Marilyn Manson and Florence Henderson were the guests.

Saw letterman last December. The studio is very small and the pages spend about ten minutes with the audience going over the rules. We also had a comedian to pump up the crowd before Dave came out. The main thing I noticed was that the lighting makes the show appear darker on tv than it does live.

Wife and I saw letterman 2 years ago. The guests were the Chilean miner and Tracy Morgan. Pretty weak star power overall. Miner was the best part because he couldn't speak a lick of English then starting singing Elvis. He was in town for the marathon

Was surprised how Small the venue was. The did have comedy fluffers that tried to get the crowd hyped up. Got old after a while. If he says something funny I will laugh till them piss off. Was cool once just to do it prob wouldn't do,it again unless it was guest I really liked

Wow, that's back when Manson was legit. Ice Cube was paired up with some sitcom chick and a black lady with a phd in Econ or some shite.

And they had the flunkie comedian fluffer boys to pump the crowd up too.

I bet Fallon wouldn't be too bad. Just because he gets the guests to play games.

He's the funniest late night talk show host on TV. I'd hate to see what you thought about the others.
