Ash Schulz : Is that a mcpoyle?

LiveAction Link : I love that Jimmi Simpson is finally getting better known in Hollywood but he's still a criminally under rated actor

professorM : Lyle the intern grew up to be the man in black.

Matt Wiley : It's like Deadpool and Christian Slater had a child.

Jacob Tender : I wouldn't doubt that Ben Schwartz took some inspiration for Jean-Ralphio Saperstein from Jimmi Simpson's intern character.

blasztr : Jimmi Simpson was ahead of his time with this shit. Crazy that Dave was down for this bit. And really great that the crowd barely follows along.

HyborianAge : It's herbal. It's from Japan. It's Japanese.

exaltedchampion : I don't mean to squeeze your YAM BAGS

Anthony Lloyd : YOU WILL CALL HER!!

No Body : He’s like a cartoon character always wearing the same outfit haha

David Blette : “I’m really not allowed to touch the interns”. -David LOL

DannyWilliamH : He's dead to me. *HE'S DEEEAAAAAAADDDD TO ME*

Earl Butz : This city is our oyster so let's start shuckin it

NevadaBoss : Lyle--arguably the last, great original Late Night/Late Show to Chris Elliott, the best running character in Dave-dom. Great upload...thanks, 'broheim!'...

Mia7189 : Jimmi Simpson's had a fantastic year with WESTWORLD and UNSOLVED: The Murder of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. How cool would it have been if Dave was still on the air and had him on his show this year as a guest?

Ben Connor : From this to always sunny to westworld, this man has so much talent ! 🤣

Andys Videos/Bungle Boy Videos : My Dad showed me Lyle The Intern, cuz he always watched Letterman. This was also my introduction to the greatness that is Jimmi Simpson. My Dad and I loved the Lyle/Letterman connection. Watching these take me back to all those times laughing with him. So thank you so much for cutting all of them together! Happy Holidays.

Hamed Najafpour : Lyle and Ryan Reynolds share the same voice

JP : was that the inspiration for john ralphio?!

werewolfbymoonknight : wow guess we know where jon ralphio came from

Adam Frazier : oh my god, bless you for doing this

John Michael Patrick : This guy is a really great actor ! I didn't know he had been on Letterman...

Corey Caldwell : No one in late night now would have the balls to do anything this odd.

Matthew Topping : Jimmi Simpson is a comic genius.

scheruvu3 : Never saw this skit before. That kid is AMAZING.

Machete Moonlight : "Tell that to TMZ, bubblebutt.." lol

Felix Millar : Lyle's chaotic bisexual energy is perfect.

puskas : The 32:30 skit is the best. It's got everything, the weird Lyle mannerisms, the cutaway to Rudy, the vlog, the "Im getting on the bus" (probably my favorite thing ever from Lyle). Its just so great.

TheGr8stManEvr : Lyle was one of my favorite all time characters. I laugh every time I hear him say "I gotta get the truth out like they did in Iran." 49:42 Bahahahahah

Dippe Galant : Lyle is precious! I forgot all about him, but when I watched Letterman religiously he was one of my favourite segments. And the repeat is worth every second... :-D

Steve Godwin : I was a huge Letterman fan, and the show had a lot of top-notch bits, but Lyle is one of the absolute best. Jimmi Simpson is a national treasure.

Daniel Drader : When I first saw this I said 'over an hour? I'll watch a couple but I'm not going to waste over an hour watching this'. But then an hour and 6 minutes later I was screaming 'Noooo.... just give me 5 more minutes'. Thank you for this.
