Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of January 29, 2018

Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

While you wait this long week out as we head towards Super Bowl 52 between the Pats and the Eagles, there’s plenty of comedy to keep you occupied until the game finally gets here this coming Sunday. Here’s some highlights this week.

Monday starts out with some stand up on from Kellen Erskine who is out of Los Angeles, but was named as one of the Eighth Annual Comics to Watch at last year’s New York Comedy Festival. Plus on Monday, there’s a rare comedian appearance on Comedy Central’s The Opposition with Jordan Klepper when the very funny Roy Wood Jr. sits in the guest chair normally occupied by a someone with a more political or journalistic background.

On Tuesday, here’s a non-comedy highlight that’s still guaranteed to provide plenty of laughs. Porn star and recipient of the Donald J. Trump Presidential Porn Star Pay-Out Cash Prize, Stormy Daniels will sit down with to talk all things Trump on JKL. Speaking of the President, it’s his first time deliver a State of the Union speech on Tuesday and Trevor Noah will host a special edition of his program with : State of the Union 2018 – The President Goes An Hour Without Watching Television airing in its normal time slot on CC. Also on Tuesday, watch for Jordan Temple’s stand up performance on Conan. Jordan was also a part the New York Comedy Festival’s Comics to Watch showcase last year and as a bonus, he was named by The Bonfire‘s Dan Soder as his pick on our list of comedians who will be the Next Big Thing in 2018.

Wednesday’s comedian to watch is Jacob Williams who will be performing on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Jacob was one of the 12 competitors who battled it out for the title of New York’s Funniest at Carolines on Broadway last year, and anyone who has ever seen this competition knows that there are never any slouches in the field of finalists. While Colbert is hosting one of comedy’s new up-and-comers, that same night, James Corden hosts a legend when he welcomes Martin Short to the Late Late Show. And if that’s not enough comedy for you on Wednesday, Conan O’Brien has one of his favorite comedians stopping by with a visit from the hysterical Tom Papa.

Then we skip ahead to the weekend and into the month of February with continuing its streak of new, live shows with Natalie Portman returning to host for her second time along with first-time musical guest Dua Lipa.
