Netflix has released a short clip previewing Barack Obama’s appearance on the first episode of David Letterman’s new Netflix talk show, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.”
In the 52-second video, Obama recounts a self-deprecating experience of dancing with Prince, months before the singer died in 2016. The former president jokes that he has “dad moves” and practices “staying in the pocket” to avoid embarrassment while dancing.
Letterman’s new, hour-long series is set to air monthly after the Obama episode debuts on January 12. Subsequent episodes feature an influential list of guests, including Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and George Clooney.
Netflix described the series by saying that its “interviews will take place both inside and outside a studio setting. The conversations are intimate, in-depth and far-reaching, with the levity and humor Dave’s fans know and love. Field segments will bring Dave to locations far and wide, expressing his curiosity and desire to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the iconic guest featured in the episode.”
