Ty Burrell Talks About His Dad Embarrassing Him As a Teen on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Ty Burrell, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Ty Burrell accepted his Emmy with a story about his father. He seems to have tons of them, and they're all incredibly entertaining. After his latest on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), we're thinking he should write a book about the man. Maybe call it '$#*! My Dad Did' and get CBS to make a show about it ...

It looks like his dad did crazy things to help his son out, too, so it served a purpose. We loved his story about his father wearing a short robe into a hotel lobby to encourage his son to get changed faster after away games as a teen athlete.

Nothing embarrasses a teen more than their parents, and we can only imagine the added horror of the robe. Wonder if there'll be a run on those from parents irritated by their own teenagers looking for ways to get them in line?

My Dad did the same to all of us. He would take us for a Sunday drive and would ask us if we wanted to left or right at the next corner and then he would go straight, sometimes it was a field, and others just a parking lot. Then we would have to wait for the tow truck to haul our car out of the field, shaking head.....
My father loved bright colors, what we would call pastels now. A bright sun yellow golf shirt with socks to match, and plaid shorts with the same yellow in them and to top it off a tam, same material as his shorts. He would drop the top, we kids would all hide on the floor of the back seat.. God I miss him...lol
