Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of April 16, 2018


Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

It’s that time of year again. No, not tax season. That time of year, each April, when our President decides to launch airstrikes against Syria. It’s become a spring tradition. So if you need some laughs to mask the specter of perhaps another war, you can always check out what’s happening in late night comedy. Here’s some highlights for this week.

Monday starts off the week with some remarkably funny women in late night. The outrageous Bridget Everett makes a triumphant return to the Tonight Show. Her visits with always turn into late night events. Michelle Wolf is on Live to talk about her new weekly Netflix series, “The Break with Michelle Wolf“. And acclaimed television writer Nell Scovell will be on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert discussing her new book, “Just the Funny Parts.” You can also get a more in depth look at Nell and her book in a conversation she had with the Interrobang’s own Debra Kessler.

Tuesday, in a non-comedy highlight, Stephen Colbert has the first late night interview with former FBI Director James Comey to talk about his book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership“. You’ll have to tune in to see if Comey has good things or bad things to say about the man who fired him, President Trump. We’re betting on bad. But remember, it’s like they always say, you can’t spell “Comedy” without “Comey”.

Wednesday, watch for three of our favorite comedians in late night with Tom Segura on Last Call with Carson Daly, Aparna Nacherla on the Late Late Show with James Corden and Natasha Leggero on . Then on Thursday, reunites with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show and she’s bringing the cast of the Broadway musical she’s producing based on the movie she wrote, “Mean Girls.”

Finally on Friday, there’s fresh stand up comedy on the Tonight Show from up-and-coming comedian, Kiry Shabazz who late last year won the 14th annual StandUp NBC competition. The open competition looks for comedians from diverse backgrounds and Kiry beat out 1,250 other stand ups who auditioned across the nation. It’s not a bad way to start out a national comedy career, with a spot on the Tonight Show!
