The last episode of Season 1 is with radio shock jock Howard Stern, and there is now a bonus episode with Jerry Seinfeld interviewing Dave.
Earlier episodes include Barack Obama, George Clooney, Jay-Z, and Tina Fey.
Howard Stern comes out in a beard, launching Dave into a conversation on the beard and how it looks in person.
I would have bet when Netflix gave you a show you would lose the beard. I think they had bet on that too.
They talk about looks, how long they had known each other (dating back to 1984), and Howards starts in radio…from his personality (mirrored off the hard methods of Bob Grant, the no-nonsense conservative) to his constant fights with the FCC, an aspect that he lost when he moved to SiriusXM.
I forget I have (the beard), because I don’t have to look at it.
Conversations also move on to more personal topics, such as his family relationship with his daughters, him and his wife’s (Beth) connection to the North Shore Animal League, and his autobiographical movie Private Parts.
Also touched upon is his long-time co-host Robin Quivers.
At the end Dave heads to Southern Utah with paleontologist Kristen Sadler, to explore the Grand Staircase-Escalante, a National Park that lost its monument status under President Trump, to discuss how to help protect our lands.
This episode was the dirtiest of the season, understandably since it was Howard Stern, but it was a good chat between the two.
They added a bonus episode to this season, which may have come out earlier this month, where Jerry interviews Dave, with a little bit of a back and forth.
From the Netflix stages in LA, filmed in early May 2018, the duo are there to promote their shows (this one for Dave, and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and Jerry Before Seinfeld for Jerry), and basically have a sit-down before a live audience about the backgrounds to their shows and life.
This could be the thing that springboards you(r career) forward. – Jerry to Dave
Jerry did one of the first sets on Dave’s show in the 1980s and repeated that same set on his last shows in 2015, and they focus on how they have been striving for greatness all the years since.
You’re Dave Letterman, you idiot.
