Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of January 9, 2017


LATE NIGHT 2016 AUG

Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

Your late night hosts have all decided that it’s time to start making some new comedy in the new year and everyone will be right back to work this week. Except for , but he’s only taking Monday off for a Golden Globes travel day and to obviously nurse a hangover.

Highlights this week start with Monday’s Late Show. Stephen Colbert is hosting Billy Joel and since he refuses to put out new music, the chances that he’ll do “Piano Man” have greatly increased. Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway heads into an intellectual lion’s den on Tuesday when she visits Late Night with , who did some of the smartest and funniest anti-Trump coverage before, during and after the election. Michelle Obama makes her final Tonight Show appearance as First Lady on Thursday. That same night, Jimmy Fallon also has FLOTUS’ favorite musician, Stevie Wonder, on the show with her.

Then at the end of the week, watch for Gary Gulman to return the Ed Sullivan Theater stage. He’s previously appeared on ’s Late Show, but on Friday he makes his Late Show with Stephen Colbert debut. Gary was a multiple nominee in our Best of 2016 honors, nominated for Best Comedy Special, Best Comedy Album and Best Stand Up Comedian of 2016. Then, returns for the second half of Season 42 on Saturday with a new episode hosted by Felicity Jones, the star of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which is closing in on $1 Billion in worldwide box office which should be more than enough to get you an SNL hosting gig.
