Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of August 21, 2017


Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

Just about all the world is on vacation this week. You’re even probably reading this while on vacation. Well, that goes for our late night hosts too. Everyone in late night except for our basic cable boys, , Chris Gethard and Trevor Noah, are on vacay. Let’s thank them for sticking around this week to provide some laughs. (slow clap)

Monday, despite all the repeats, Team Coco is providing some fresh late night comedy with stand up from Conan favorite, Myq Kaplan who has been on Letterman, Ferguson, Corden, Seth, @midnight and The Chris Gethard Show. Myq even appeared on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. That’s a really tight window in late night to have squeezed through.

On Tuesday, you can catch a very funny repeat of the Late Show. Stephen Colbert has an all comedy lineup with , Mike Birbiglia and Michael Showalter. Also on Tuesday, the very funny Lea DeLaria from Orange is the New Black is on a brand new Conan. Late Night Comedy Listings Fun Fact: Lea DeLaria broke a glass ceiling in 1993 by becoming the first openly gay comedian to perform on a late night talk show when she appeared on the Show. On Wednesday, Conan has more brand new stand up when Jeff Caldwell performs.

If you missed Charles Gould’s stand up debut on late night television, you’re in luck. On Thursday, the Live repeat will feature Charles’ initiation into late night comedy. Also on Thursday, here’s your chance to catch Jim Gaffigan on Late Night with if you missed this episode the first time around. If you’re looking for something comical and new, check out The Chris Gethard Show with this week’s guest, Adam Pally on truTV at 11pm.

On Friday, there’s repeat shows that are definitely worth watching, even if you watched them the first time. On the Late Show, Stephen Colbert’s Friday rerun features comedy superstar Dave Chappelle and on the Late Late Show repeat, James Corden’s entire panel is from the cast of the Showtime series, “I’m Dying Up Here“, the drama about comedy.
