Mississippi Hippie: Steve Martin is definitely near the top of my "favorite people in the world I've never met and probably never will" list. Anyone else a fan of his bluegrass band?


Right here ...

PsyRat: It's supposed to be funny because Mitt Romney doesn't smoke weed. If they did that bit with Obama (who did smoke weed, a LOT), it would be racist. It should be easy enough to understand.

/there is NOTHING funny about liberals or democrats
//nothing at all



Its funny how the main people crying about things being overly PC are ALWAYS spewing this passive-aggressive bullshiat. I guess you're the real victim here.

Actually, Mormons aren't supposed to smoke or do drugs at all. That may have been part of the joke, for those who were aware of it. They were making fun of Obama earlier on the show, though. All politicians seem to make for good comedy these days.

Mr Guy: Now, instead of "jokes", we have "reality TV", which is like a joke, except it's being played on the entire first world.


And the punchline is the embarrassing amount of profit these shows make.

Oh man, your victim complex is so precious. And hilarious.

Another copy-paste headline greened to the main page.

WTF?

Gotta check them out. Steve Martin was no joke on the banjo even in the 70's.

I'm not the biggest Bluegrass fan, but I enjoy the Steep Canyon Rangers. His banjo playing is just ridiculous, too. They also had a great performance on Austin City Limits, worth checking out.


Check out Atheists Ain't Got No Songs...frickin' love it!

12349876: Slaves2Darkness: Steve Martin is still alive? Who knew?

Guess you're one of those douchebags who thinks grey hair automatically makes you old.

He's only 66.

There'll be an Anderson Cooper headline in 20 years and you'll say the same thing.


Besides, Steve Martin's hair turned white when he was in his twenties?!

Yeah, yeah, yeah... Mallard Fillmore is the absolute height of hilarity.

The problem is that Steve Martin hasn't been funny since he was 40.

Letterman's show quit being funny a couple of years ago when he made a conscious decision to make jokes that shows his political affiliation. I don't understand how someone can make the same jokes over and over and over about the same people that shows that he doesn't like them.
The first thousand jokes this year about Bush and Cheney weren't funny (or timely) as they were when the things they did were funny 5 to 7 years ago. And will we ever hear the end of the Romney/dog on the car roof? Again, funny the first two or three hundred times, but now...just tiring.
Letterman, we get it, you're a Liberal, OK.
You used to be topically funny, now you're turning into an old man Bill Maher.

He's been plenty funny, the problem is he keeps making terrible movies.

tommydee: Why does 'old' equate to 'douchebag'? Do you have daddy issues?



Your pedantic douchiness exceeds even the asshat who got butthurt about people with gray hair being called old.

You self conscious cause your hair shiat out on you, grandpa?

David Letterman is vastly superior to Jay Leno, but you already knew that.

Jim.Casy: Letterman checked in to see the tricks Martin was using to attract tourists, which included giving a beer to a minor and selling a loaded handgun with a broken a safety to a woman.

Wait...what? I like Steve Martin as much as the next person, and I'm all for ripping on Rmoney, but I don't understand how Steve was able to get away with this. I feel like I'm missing something critical in the joke, other than "he was just being crazy!", because that stuff sounds illegal and dangerous.

Someone please help me understand!


Sigh. Acting. Props. Professional cast members. No minors, alcohol, guns or illegal drugs were used in the making of this skit.

Steve martin hasn't been funny since bowfinger:( he makes me so sad...

Would you like some ointment, Mr. Leno?
