All the dialogue in the previous post about David Letterman's apology to Sarah Palin sent me searching for previous comedian apologies. Here are some I found:

Jamie Fox to Miley Cyrus.

Bill Maher to Pope Benedict

Al Franken to John Ashcroft.

Michael Richards to the African-American community.

Know any more?
  • Some comics did not apologies. Did Jack Paar give a apology for the WC joke?
