We like Todd Barry. Sometimes, when we’re feeling especially burned out on stand-up, we think he’s the only stand-up comedian that we actually do like. So watching this 1982 Late Night with David Letterman clip where Dave talks to an 18-year-old Barry over the phone is an absolute treat. Barry already had his smug delivery down pat as a high schooler, and the coda from 1984 sounds like something Barry himself would have written. Check it out if you like comedy and laughing and Todd Barry and David Letterman.
