Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of January 22, 2018


Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

Here’s what’s going on in late night comedy this week. James Corden is off all week as he prepares and rehearses to host next weekend’s Grammy Awards on CBS. It makes you wonder if Corden can resist doing a musical number at the Grammys because that’s just what you want to see at a music awards show- the host singing instead of one of the hundreds of actual singers sitting in the room. This ain’t the Tonys on Broadway, Jimmy C.

In our highlights this week, we are jumping ahead to Thursday to let you know that one of favorite comedians which you’ve heard several times on Bennington on SiriusXM, Sam Morril will be doing stand up Thursday night on . Sam is hilarious and is just one part of a very funny Conan coming up on Thursday at 11pm. Joining Sam as guests will also be the hilarious Tom Segura and your bestie from “Friends“, Lisa Kudrow.

On Monday, welcomes one his best guests back to JKL. joins Jimmy K to talk about Season 3 of “Baskets” coming up this Tuesday, January 23 at 10pm on FX. As JKL fans already know, a Zach Galifianakis visit to Kimmel is always a memorable one. Also on Monday, James Corden switches seats when he’s a guest on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, plus in even more cross-over booking, Stephen also welcomes former Conan O’Brien (Tonight Show era) writer Deon Cole to perform stand up on Monday night.

Tuesday night has plenty of comedy for everyone. Stephen Colbert hosts comedy legend Eugene Levy who will be talking about the new season of “Schitt’s Creek” which starts this Wednesday on Pop TV at 8pm. Conan brings back the Emmy Award winning comedy icon Louie Anderson to talk about Season 3 of “Baskets” on FX. And former Weekend Update anchor welcomes the current anchor team Colin Jost & Michael Che to Late Night. If you’d like a non-comedy highlight for Tuesday that may have you laughing anyway, former President of Mexico Vincente Fox will be on The Opposition with Jordan Klepper at 11:30 on Comedy Central on Tuesday. The man has no problem dropping some F-Bombs while talking about our current President. Could be worth the space on your DVR.

Wednesday brings us comedy from the very funny Roy Wood Jr. who you know as one of the last 3 finalists on on the very competitive 2010 season, one of Variety magazine’s Comics to Watch in 2016, one of the New Faces showcase at JFL in Montreal and of course as a Daily Show with Trevor Noah correspondent. Also, everybody’s favorite Jim Gaffigan will be stopping Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday night, to talk about the very dramatic movie he has coming out, “Chappaquiddick“.
