Gay Comedian Billy Eichner Pays A Screaming Hilarious Visit To David Letterman: VIDEO

EichnerLetterman

"Let's play a game and you scream at me and stuff." Classic.

Openly gay and hilarious Billy on the Street comedian Billy Eichner made his first appearance on The Late Show and, after receiving the above instruction from David Letterman, proceeded to yell his way through an absurd game called "Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?" Pilot Inspector? War Admiral? Blue Angel? Moxie Crime Fighter? It is shockingly impossible to win.

The results are laugh-out-loud funny, and it is clear that Eichner's caustic brand of comedy has a new fan in Letterman. "Do you have any more games we can play? I just like being yelled at! It's exciting," says Letterman, and with Eichner in command it's hard not to believe him.

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 11.20.36 AM

OXD favorite Kiesza appeared on Letterman Thursday, bringing some no-joke choreography to the Late Show stage.

The Canadian pop singer is best known for her international hit "Hideaway," whose single-take music video has gone viral.

On Letterman, Kiesza brought the video's choreography alive onstage. The often-prickly Letterman seemed genuinely impressed, flashing a big grin when he came onstage at the song's end.

If you're into old school diva anthems, "Hideaway" will probably float your boat — think a 2014 update on 90s house classic "Show Me Love" by Robin S.

Continuing to take the nation by storm, British singer-songwriter Sam Smith appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night for a performance of his single "Stay with Me".

Forecasters say that Smith's new album In the Lonely Hour could sell more than 150,000 albums this week, probably not enough to top Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence, but a huge debut nonetheless.

Neil Patrick Harris Tells Howard Stern He Was Offered Job as Letterman's 'Late Show' Replacement: AUDIO

Nphlateshow

Neil Patrick Harris sat down with Howard Stern today to talk about his career, how coming out affected it, and what we may see from him in the future. The former star of How I Met Your Mother and current glamazon of Broadway (in Hedwig and the Angry Inch) told Stern that CBS approached him to host the Late Show after David Letterman bid the program farewell. NPH was looking for something a little more theatrical, though.

Vulture reports:

"[Les Moonves and CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler] called me in and sat me down and asked if [Late Show] was something I'd be interested in doing," Harris says. "In that instance, I felt like I knew what my skillsets were and I kind of knew what it is that I wanted to do after [How I Met Your Mother] … so I was surprised he pitched me that idea," he says. He wasn't interested in the 11:30 slot, nor was he interested in the 12:30 one. "I think I would get bored of the repetition fast, and the structure of it is so set," Harris says. "I don't have any interest in doing monologue, commercial, sketch, guest, guest, guest, musical act, good night."

Which is not to say Harris wouldn't be interested in another kind of show. "I liked this weekly variety thing," he says. "I think if it's weekly, and people really want to see it, and you trust that there's a lot of really great shit on there, then you're gonna get the guests to want to come on there — a weekly thing you'd have more time to prep for stuff, you could pre-tape stuff that would be really exciting, you could flesh it out more."
