Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of January 15, 2018


Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

The temperatures across the country keep dropping. The wind chill will freeze you in your steps. It’s not fit out for man nor beast. So why not throw an extra fire on the log, snuggle up and watch some comedy each late night of the week? There’s plenty of comedy to keep you warm. Here’s some of the highlights from this week’s upcoming late night talkers.

On Monday, welcomes two of his favorite and most funny guests back to his show. will be on ’s couch to talk about the new season of his amazingly funny HBO series, Crashing, plus there’s new stand up with a performance from Scottish comedian and Team Coco regular Daniel Sloss. Meanwhile, over at the Tonight Show, welcomes comedy legend Lily Tomlin along with screen legend Jane Fonda, to discuss their Netflix series, Grace and Frankie.

Wednesday, has Bill Maher discussing the upcoming Season 16 premiere of Real Time on HBO. Maher’s last show was back in November before Thanksgiving. That’s two months worth of Trump that the country’s leading anti-Trump comedian has missed. He may have plenty to say on JKL. Also, watch for stand up from Mo Welch on Conan. Besides being a comedian, Mo is a noted cartoonist. We can only assume that she’ll be doing a set on Conan since it would take too long to draw her act.

Heading into the weekend, there’s that season premiere of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO that we just told you about and on Saturday, there’s a brand new SNL hosted by Golden Globe nominee, possible upcoming Oscar nominee and star of the film Molly’s Game, Jessica Chastain.
