Anyone know where I can find a clip of Andy Sansone attempting to perform on The Late Show with David Letterman on August 21, 2006? I thought it would be easy to find on YouTube or Google Video after my hearing he had flubbed his routine, threw down the microphone and walked off stage.

...and if so, do you think publicity stunt or genuine Must See TV? Here are a couple threads dealing with the incident.

Looks to me like a Letterman gag.

Yeah, just watched it. Total gag. Not real.

Isn't this the same guy who came on as the Rubik's Cube champ, and a couple other characters, and always ends by throwing a fit and walking off? Yes. I think it is.

Yeah, it was a standard Late Show time filling gag with the guy I like to call "Mr. Screwup". Magic, dominoes, stand-up, stump the band fill-in, etc. I think they use him when Lance Armstrong / Floyd Landis isn't available (or maybe it's the same person?)

Oh, ya, lowlife, I remember the domino thing now. That was the first one that foooled me until he screwed it up. Then I was in hysterics when I realized I'd been set up. Just like the dominoes! Ooooo, it's performance art! :)
