During Friday night’s Late Show monologue, David Letterman discussed his retirement and the reason for leaving his longtime show.
Cracking wise about telling CBS boss Leslie Moonves about his retirement, David Letterman – who announced his plans to step down next year during Thursday night’s show – said that he called Moonves to break the news.
“I said, <<I’m retiring>>, and there was a pause and he said, <<Who is this?>>” David Letterman cracked.
David Letterman, 66, then semi-addressed the reason for his retirement.
“People are saying to me, <<Honestly quit the wise remarks [and] screwing around, why did you decide to announce your retirement?>>” David Letterman noted.
He then claimed that the decision had come from a recent conversation with his makeup artist Jane.
“She says to me, <<Dave, there’s really nothing more I can do>>,” David Letterman joked.
