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.
This week’s highlights include Jimmy Fallon trying something experimental. 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.
Tuesday’s highlights start with Conan. He’s hosting British comedian James Veitch. He’s making his American late night comedy show debut. Veitch has been called “ahead of the poetic curve” and “ahead of his time” by British newspapers. Be ahead of your friends and check out his performance Tuesday on Conan to stay ahead of your friends on current popular English stand up comics. Also on Tuesday, if you like funny women, they will be dominating the guest couches in late night. Sarah Silverman is on Fallon, Natasha Leggero is on Colbert and SNL‘s Cecily Strong is on Seth. Women are definitely funny on Tuesday night.
On Wednesday, Tina Fey reunites with her former Saturday Night Live cast mate when she visits Seth Meyers on Late Night. That same evening, one of Seth’s writers and producers gets to go in front of the camera. 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.
Then on Thursday, if you haven’t check out the brand new incarnation of The Chris Gethard Show on truTV, now is the time to give it a look. Chris welcomes his special guest Michael Ian Black and musical guest Bash & Pop. The Chris Gethard Show is the only late night show which is live and if you’ve seen it since it began on truTV, you know that it is also completely uncensored!
