David Letterman gives emotional 10-minute tribute to Robin Williams
Once, I got to see him. I couldn’t tell you the host, but Kanye was the musical guest, and it was back in the 808s era, so the Derrick guys and I had all finagled an invite, and we were doing bits about “How could you be so Arli$$?”
Fun night. But the thing was, Don Pardo was there. His soundproof booth was situated on the left side of the room. Seeing him, at ninety-esque years old, flying up every week to make America laugh — the consummate professional — was by far the coolest part of the entire experience.

The Mindy Project season two gag reel
Bill Hader for Vogue (September 2014)
Bill Hader’s stories have everything: Angry Arnold Schwarzenegger, “Titanic” jokes that get you fired, and that thing where the bad guy from “Karate Kid” passive aggressively drinks your milkshake. The “Saturday Night Liv…

August 18th, 2014: Very sorry to hear about the passing of Don Pardo, who died in his sleep. He was 96 years old.
Today’s screening: He was the voice of 38 of the 39 years of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, THE PRICE IS RIGHT, and JEOPARDY! He was also in RADIO DAYS and had a cameo on 30 ROCK.
Today’s soundtrack: "Weird Al" Yankovic’s "I Lost on Jeopardy" and Frank Zappa’s "The Illinois Enema Bandit" and "Punky’s Whips"
Today’s gaff: “Not for Ready Prime-Time Players.” - Pardo’s screw-up on the first SNL intro.
Today’s quote: “Every year the new cast couldn’t wait to hear their name said by him.” - Lorne Michaels
RIP Don Pardo, 1918-2014.
