Bradford Keeney

What are the top ten reasons to buy Bradford Keeney’s radically funny book about the king of late-night comedy? A slew of hysterical interactive videotape exercises (lining up the local lawnmowers to watch the show, then sending a tape of the event to Dave), cut-and-paste activities (Dave’s head on famous men), a Lunacy Gift Certificate, an airlift of comic books as a foreign-policy tool, a letter-writing campaign to get Dave appointed ambassador to a foreign country, a list of places in your home to stash the message “Letter Man is here,” the suggestion that Letterman is a friendly alien sent here to warn us of the dangers of a surfeit of seriousness, wonderfully zany illustrations, and at least two tips that will forever change the way you look at Letterman, television … and life.
