This is an inside joke for Letterman fans, as he also referred to himself as "Hofert" in some skits back at his old program Late Night with David Letterman (1982) on NBC.

Fuse literary themes like Candide and the Odyssey with Chris Elliott's relentless style of moronic comedy and you have a movie people will either love or hate.
