David Letterman has been involved in the entertainment industry for over forty years and tends to be a very divisive figure. Some people loved the affable everyman who caustically poked holes in the facade of celebrity, while others found Letterman to be mean-spirited and aggressive.

What isn’t up for debate is the sizable role he’s played within American culture over the course of multiple decades. Whether you’re a fan or not, everybody knows the name David Letterman and his sarcastic wit has left an imprint on generations of observers.

A deeply private man, Letterman’s relationship with his own celebrity and success is as complicated as it is fascinating. At many points in his career it seemed the only thing Letterman feared more than outright failure were the consequences and pressure of his own achievements.

For a man who often took the wind out of pompous, egotistical celebrities – who dared to take themselves too seriously – Letterman was a workaholic, nearly obsessed with achieving perfection in his performances, and left a trail of broken relationships in his wake.

Subjective opinions abound, but what is The Truth About David Letterman?
