When Letterman took to the Coconut Grove Playhouse stage in November of 1996, Miami was not known to be the playground of the young, hot and famous as it is now. It’s shown in Dave’s top 10 list from the show that night covering the top 10 good things about being a senior citizen.

“Early birds special at Hooters,” said Letterman.

Fort Lauderdale based Comedian Wil Shriner, who is a regular on the Paul and Young Ron Show, met Letterman in 1977 when he filled in for Johnny Carson.

Shriner worked for Dave in the beginning of his career and has made appearances on the show ever since.

“When you come To David Letterman, you bring game,” said Shriner. “The pressure was to make David laugh.”
