Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of November 20, 2017


Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

Plenty of shows are taking all of Thanksgiving week off and serving you leftover episodes Monday through Friday this week. O’Brien is taking the whole week off and has plenty of great Best Of’s for his Team Coco fans. Live won’t be live; it will be in reruns all week long as well. Over at Comedy Central, with Trevor Noah and The Opposition with Jordan Klepper are also out for the week. Plus two HBO shows, Real Time with Bill Maher and Last Week Tonight with  had their season finales this past week and won’t be back until 2018.

The shows working half-weeks include The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden. We can understand Colbert working only three days this week, but James Corden!? He’s British. Why is he taking American holidays off? Then there’s the NBC boys, and who are both putting in full weeks including great pre-taped shows to air on Thanksgiving night. Classy move.

Speaking of which, we’ll jump ahead in the week for a special highlight. On Thanksgiving night, Seth Meyers continues his Late Night tradition of having his family on the show as guests. Joining Seth this year as always, will be his brother, comedian and comedy writer Josh Meyers and their parents, Hilary & Larry Meyers. This is quickly becoming a must-see holiday event. Seth’s mother Hilary is adorbs and it’s the kind of family fun and games that you wish your own untalented family could enjoy.

Instead of picking individual Best Of shows, Jimmy Kimmel Live is running a week of shows as they happened. JKL is re-airing Kimmel’s week of shows from last month when Jimmy K did his program out of Brooklyn, NYC. His Best Of guests this week include , , Howard Stern, , and the World’s Most Dangerous Band Leader, Paul Shaffer.

Wednesday, watch for New York comic Kenny DeForest, who just released his debut album, “B.A.D Dreams“, making his national late night debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Kenny is a comedy festival favorite and co-hosts and produces the popular stand up show, “Comedy at the Knitting Factory” every Sunday night in Brooklyn.

Thanksgiving night, Jimmy Fallon is serving something special on the Tonight Show menu when he hosts Jerry in a brand new show taped to air on the holiday. Also this Thursday, Conan is re-airing an all comedy episode from September featuring guests, the Impractical Jokers and comedian Caleb Synan. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving everyone!
