Premise

Late-night comedy and talk with a sharply irreverent host who prowls New York's Ed Sullivan Theater, where the show is taped, and its surrounding neighborhood in an endless quest to amuse viewers and his studio audience. Regular segments include Dave's Top Ten list, stupid pet tricks and stump the band, which he lovingly borrowed from his late-night mentor Johnny Carson.
