Watch David Letterman's Final Opening Monologue Ever (Video)

David Letterman takes the stage for the last time ever for his opening monologue on The Late Show With David Letterman on Wednesday evening (May 20) in New York City.

The 68-year-old late-night host got a standing ovation as he entered the room.

After calming down the audience, he jumped right into the jokes.

“I’ll be honest with you…it’s beginning to look like I’m not going to get The Tonight Show,” Dave said. “I’ll tell you something else…I know people are well meaning, but I’m sick and tired of ‘What are you gonna do now that you’re retired?’ You want to know what I’m going to do now that I’m retired? By God, I hope to become the new face of Scientology.”

Another downside to retirement, Dave said, “When I screw up now, I have to go on somebody else’s show to apologize.”

    I started working online, completing some basic jobs that only requires from you a computer and internet access and I am happier than ever… It’s been 6 months since i started this and i got paid so far total of 36,000 bucks… Basicly i profit close to 80 bucks/h and work for 3-4 hrs most of the days.Best part to whole this thing is that you can decide when to work yourself and for how long and you get a paycheck at the end of each week.

    His final one “ever”… how did someone who is such a bad writer even come to run a blog?

    i am glad to see him go …. loved him in the past but he has just been such a jerk to his younger guests the last 5 years that he was intolerable to watch … he wouldn’t even learn anything about his guest and just read stuff incorrectly off his queue cards … so disrespectful to his guests.
