Before he found his calling as a snarky, late-night talk show host, David Letterman spent the '70s trying to find his place in Hollywood. When he wasn't hosting failing morning shows or doing weather reports he scored a few TV guest-starring gigs, mostly playing sarcastic, sleazy jerks. In this clip you'll see his appearance in Mork Goes Erk, a first season episode of the Robin Williams sci-fi comedy series Mork & Mindy. Letterman plays Ellsworth, a cynical con-man who runs a bogus self-improvement program loosely based on EST. The real EST seminars apparently involved an instructor insulting people for hours on end, just like Letterman does here. (Click the image at left to buy Mork & Mindy - The Complete First Season.)
