Meet the next star of stage, screen and the Internet

Interview By Rose Gordon

In his second appearance on “Late Show With David Letterman” this past April, A.J. the Indian ring-necked parakeet putted a golf ball in for a hole-in-one.

A.J. has made several late-night show appearances that began almost two decades ago when Johnny Carson still ruled the post-11 o’clock news hour. No stranger to an adoring public, A.J. made his television debut at just 6 weeks old on Johnny Carson’s popular late night show, so shooting hoops and rolling over on Letterman’s desk was really just another day in this talented parrot’s life.
