Michael Che is having a great 2012. The young comedian has earned multiple TV credits on your cable dial, from IFC’s Bunk to Comedy Central’s John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, earned a pass into his dream club — the Comedy Cellar in NYC — and Friday night, he made his network TV debut on Late Show with David Letterman.

In this appearance, Che explains gentrification, wonders about the extent of American obesity, puts a new twist on the argument that gay marriage leads to marrying animals, and what it’s like to love someone you do not like.

Roll the clip!
