.I'm sure you're all familiar with David Letterman's Top 10 list. It's been a TV late night comedy benchmark for nearly 30 yrs....classic funny no question.
As many times that I've seen it and laughed hard at some of the list I've always got off knowing the real genius is in the simplicity of it. His writers simply put a pop culture phrase, news story, or celebrity etc at the top and write 10 short funny sentences about it all, one attempting to top the other. So easy to write so easy to follow by the audience.
