36. Yeah, that whole "Oprah, Uma" thing

really made me cringe and I was embarrassed for him. I don't know what he was thinking with that. He did, however, have a great sense of self-deprecating humor about it, though, to his great credit. A few years later, when Billy Crystal again hosted, Crystal did a schtick in the beginning where he was "worried" that he wouldn't do as well as past hosts and wanted to get some tips from other hosts. So suddenly here came Dave in a biplane (can't remember now if it was a film or really live on stage), wishing him good luck and telling him "don't forget to introduce Uma to Oprah and Oprah to Uma". That got a lot more laughs than Letterman did the entire night he hosted. He could have been a lot more arrogant about it.
