A late-breaking, welcome addition to the Festival! Now who is the genius who scheduled this for the same time as Lou Ann's I Remember Viv dinner? :huh:

 

From the L-D Center:

 

Regis Philbin will moderate a panel of producers, writers and crew from David Letterman's Late Show and Late Night. "David Letterman - Behind The Scenes Of Late Night's Longest Running Broadcaster" will take place at 5:30pm on Thursday, July 30th at the Willow Bay Theater in Jamestown, NY as part of the Lucille Ball Comedy Festival.  This will be the first time since David Letterman's retirement that the group will discuss how they helped craft Letterman's shows for the last 33 years!

 

"This event embodies the spirit of the National Comedy Center, and we're thrilled to host Regis Philbin and these major influencers of comedy," said Executive Director, Journey Gunderson.

 

With one hundred and fifty appearances on Late Night/Late Show, Regis Philbin holds the record as the most frequent Letterman guest.  Philbin took part in countless comedy bits on the show and his banter with Letterman was legendary. Over the last five decades, Regis has hosted numerous shows, including: Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, Live with Regis and Kelly, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and The Regis Philbin Show

 

The panelists for the evening are: Barbara Gaines (Executive Producer/Associate Producer Late Show/Late Night), Jerry Foley (Director/Supervising Producer/Technical Director Late Show/Late Night), Steve O'Donnell (Head Writer/Writer Late Night/Late Show), Steve Young (Head Monologue Writer/Writer Late Show/Late Night), and Biff Henderson (Stage Manager Late Show/Late Night).  Gaines and Foley were each nominated in the 2015 Emmy Awards announcement last week.
