David Letterman added his tribute to his friend and fellow comedian Robin Williams on Monday night's "The Late Show" by showcasing a montage of the actor's appearances on his show.

Williams died Aug. 11 at the beginning of a week of "The Late Show" repeats, and when Letterman returned to air on Monday night, he dedicated a 10-minute segment to the late star.

Letterman spoke about his 38-year friendship with Williams, revealing the actor cast him in an episode of his TV comedy "Mork & Mindy."

"Even in the old days, he was kind enough to ask me to appear on the 'Mork & Mindy' show. He did it only because he was trying to help other fledgling, starting-out comics... Robin was kind of enough to invite me on because he thought, 'Why can't I spread this around to my friends?' And that's exactly what he did."

Williams appeared on "The Late Show" more than 50 times.
