Harvey Pekar’s last appearance on the Letterman show

  1. And I see that for all his avowed concern about politeness in this little gem, Mr. Letterman this week declined the opportunity to comment on Harvey’s contributions to the comic book. What a class “A” prick.

  2. The second cut-to-commercial reminds me of the Academy Awards orchestra starting up to soon to drown out Michael Moore.

    It’s a drag to go on, night after night, doing simple-minded bullshit.

    If only Letterman would admit that once in awhile.

  5. or was this one the last one?
    this is the one where letterman really loses it—pekar calls him a shill for GE.

  6. To my Bard comrade, you are correct. That was the last appearance.

  7. Actually, Pekar turned up again in 1994 on the Late Show.
