Happy Halloween! Time to knock on the all the late night talk show stage doors and see what comedy guests the hosts are handing out this year! Here’s your highlights.
On Monday, if you like your comedy guests to be nice and liberal, tune into The Opposition with Jordan Klepper on Comedy Central when Jordan’s guest is Rob Reiner, the director of classic comedies like The Princess Bride, This Is Spinal Tap and When Harry Met Sally…, to name just a few. Plus, Rob has been known to express wanting President Trump removed from office, so that will probably come up, especially on a show called The Opposition. His new film is LBJ starring Woody Harrelson which isn’t considered a comedy unless you find U.S. Presidents having meetings while he sits on the toilet with the door open funny. Also on Monday, Jimmy Fallon welcomes comedy legend and SCTV icon Andrea Martin who will be promoting her sitcom, Great News.
Moving to Tuesday, Conan has an all comedy lineup with guests JB Smoove (read about his new advice book, The Book of Leon: Philosophy of a Fool here on the IBang), Whitney Cummings and Joel Kim Booster, meanwhile Gilbert Gottfried will be appearing on the Late Show for a guaranteed baffling interview with Stephen Colbert. On Wednesday, in a non-comedy highlight, Hillary Clinton heads to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah in an interview that is sure to be more substantive than when Jimmy Fallon had her write a thank you note. And the same night, Ellen DeGeneres wanders out of daytime talk and into late night for a rare appearance where she’ll be on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It feels like Dory the Fish got lost again.
On Thursday, Chris Gethard has a brand new episode of The Chris Gethard Show on truTV with special guest Rob Corddry. If you’re into the second season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, Jimmy Fallon is hosting the kids from the cast on Thursday. Plus, it’s the night for plenty of funny women appearing in late night with Maria Bamford on Conan, Rosie O’Donnell on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Whoopi Goldberg and Kathryn Hahn on Colbert and Tig Notaro on Last Call with Carson Daly.
