According to several news sites, the Chilean miner, Edison Peña, also known as “The Runner,” who will join the ING New York City marathon this Sunday visited “The Late Show with David Letterman” and had the funny host laughing the whole night, while talking via an interpreter.

The appearance was taped Thursday afternoon for a scheduled broadcast later in the evening. Getting trapped for 69 days in the mine, running three to six miles a day while inside the mine and joining the marathon this weekend were among the topics discussed on the show. Peña is the first among the Chilean miners to have such kind of in-studio interview.

Edison Peña made his singing debut on the show when he got up and sang one of his favorite Elvis songs for the audience.
