Late Night TV Remembers David Bowie: The Funniest Musician Ever
If you didn't know any better, you'd think the gender-bending British rockstar with several weird alter egos was a bit off. As it turns out, he was -- just in the kind of way that gives a person abnormally adept social graces. David Bowie, who passed away Sunday night at the age of 69, will be remembered largely for his music, of course, but to those who knew him he was one of the funniest people on Earth (or whichever other planet he called home). Just watch his cameo in HBO's "Extras" if you need additional proof.
Late Night paid their respects to the recording icon on Monday, offering a touching glimpse into the sarcastic, funny, wry alien that was David Bowie.
Having just done a "Thank You Notes" bit on Bowie's album "Blackstar" on Friday, Jimmy Fallon -- whose "Tebowie" impression went viral four years ago -- took some time to remind his viewers of Bowie's humility and impeccable sense of humor.
Musical guest EL VY and Stay Human paid tribute with a cover of Bowie's 1983 classic "Let's Dance."
An emotional Conan O'Brien remembered one of his favorite guests with some kind words, playing clips from his three hilarious interviews with the deceased legend.
