We were able to get tickets to go see The Late Show with David Letterman yesterday. Taping is actually from 4:30-5:30, but we had to arrive between 2 and 3. Peggy is a bigger fan than Tim, but when we got to the ticket booth, she told them that her favorite skit was Ruppert.
Apparently, this is what they wanted to hear because we ended up get separated from the rest of the line and our seats were in the second row! We could see everything nearly very well, except for the monologue which was partially blocked by a huge tv camera!
The set is very ornate and the backdrop is actually not a mural, but a model of the NY skyline. The biggest surprise was how good the band was and they played right through breaks. In our half second of fame, we got on camera (in the bottom right corner).
