Netflix has released the first trailer for My Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman season 2 and it looks like things are about to get very interesting. Late night fans were saddened to watch Letterman step away and retire back in 2015. However, they were later excited to learn that he had signed a deal with Netflix for a new talk show. Season 1 featured guests like President Barack Obama, radio personality Howard Stern, who was obsessed with Letterman's beard, Tina Fey, and many more.
The netflix trailer begins with David Letterman asking, "If Velcro had been invented first, would there be zippers?" One can almost see the smoke coming out of rapper/producer/clothing mogul Kanye West's ears as he ponders the question. "You know... it's.. really a deep question," says West. The rapper can later be seen in the trailer discussing his struggles with bipolar disorder with a sense of humor as Letterman listens on.
Tiffany Haddish is also featured in the My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman season 2 trailer and talks about not being accepted for the longest time in the entertainment industry before asking Letterman if he is related to anyone from the North Pole. These are the kind of interviews that the late night icon excels at. He can get into the deep discussions about heavy topics and then get right into being weird with his guests, often out-weirding them at the same time. Even personalities as big as Howard Stern's get the full Letterman treatment and are tamed in the process.
David Letterman has a gift and it is shown in the brief 2-minute trailer for My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman season 2. Ellen DeGeneres is talking about being in high school and still being in the closet, going on dates with boys, and then making out with girls in the bathroom while on the date. Letterman doesn't bat an eye and claims he's pretty sure that has happened to him on a date before. He has a way of making his guests comfortable to tell him just about anything before he brings it somewhere weird and awkward, which is his trademark.
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman season 2 premieres on Netflix May 31st. Kanye West, Ellen DeGeneres, Tiffany Haddish, Lewis Hamilton, and Melinda Gates are his guests this season and all of the interviews look like they are going to be excellent. While we wait for the end of the month to come around, you can check out the season 2 trailer below, thanks to the Netflix YouTube channel. See if you can spot the exact moment right when Kanye West's mind explodes over the whole Velcro vs. zipper conundrum at the very beginning of the trailer.
