Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

Happy Talk-tober! The month when all the late night talk shows do their funniest and best work hoping that the Great Pumpkin comes to visit them with candy and gifts. That’s not true. We just hate being the only site that doesn’t try to rhyme something with the word, “October”. Let’s get to those comedy highlight treats this week.

Usually, you can depend on nothing more controversial on the Fallon’s Tonight Show than celebrities breaking raw eggs on their heads, but this week, Jimmy F. actually ventures into dangerous territory. He’s bringing Miley Cyrus in for an entire week as guest and guest host. Hopefully, Miley will liven up the G-rated Tonight Show with some heavy-duty tongue sticking out action and other PG-13 activities to push the envelope.

Also this week, Trevor Noah is moving away from the political, journalistic and more serious guests and he’s going funny this week. Noah’s guest chair will be filled with different comedy personalities, writers and showrunners all this week. Be sure to check the full comedy listings below to see who’s stopping by The Daily Show.

Matt Goldich will be writing for himself when he guests on Late Night. This week’s highlights have featured plenty of comedic women and that continues with the Tonight Show on Wednesday night. Jimmy Fallon hosts Hillary Rodham Clinton who has a really funny story about election night last year. In fact, it’s so fucking funny you’ll laugh until you sob.
