We’re looking at a great week for comedy in late night this week, highlighted by performances and appearances by some of our favorite stand ups and some that you might know yet. Here’s what’s going on in late night this week.
On Monday, we’ve got a national stand up debut from Emmy Blotnick who just wrote for John Mulaney and Nick Kroll for the 33rd Film Independent Spirit Awards and is a writer for “The President Show” on Comedy Central, plus was selected by Comedy Central to film one of this year’s new Comedy Central Half Hour specials. Emmy will be taking the stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night. Also on Monday, Conan always knows how to start the week out funny. He’ll be doing it again this week with a Monday night appearance by the oh so funny Ron Funches.
Tuesday, Conan has Robert Reich and Mark Normand. One is a former United States Secretary of Labor and the other is one of the funniest comedians working today. We’ll let you tune in to Conan on Tuesday to see which one of these dignitaries performs stand up. Also on Tuesday, watch for Ricky Gervais on the Tonight Show and Patton Oswalt on the Late Late Show with James Corden.
Wednesday, Team Coco continues its comedy hot streak this week with an appearance by Sebastian Maniscalco, who’s quickly becoming a late night fixture. Sebastian was named the 2016 Just For Laughs Fest’s Stand Up Comedian of the Year. He’ll be promoting his current tour and new book which both have the same name, “Stay Hungry“, go to SebastianLive.com for tour dates and Amazon for the book.
On Friday, there’s plenty of comedy to kick back, relax and start the weekend with. First, the very funny comedian and SiriusXM host Pete Dominick will be on the West Coast for an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. You can catch Pete each weekday on SiriusXM Insight Channel 121 with his show, “Stand Up! with Pete Dominick” starting at 9am. Also on Friday, Jacqueline Novak performs on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. You might know Jacqueline from her depression. She’s written a hysterical book on the subject, basically a how-to book on being depressed called “How to Weep in Public: Feeble Offerings on Depression from One Who Knows“. If you love Jacqueline Novak on the Tonight Show, you can find out more about her and her comedy by listening to her episode of “Gail Meets Girls” with Gail Bennington on The Interrobang Podcast Network.
