Football is back and with its return comes disappointment. How could your team lose that game!? What was your coach and/or quarterback thinking!? Where do they finds these refs!? A garbage dump!? If your team let you down this weekend, you need some laughs or else you’re never gonna make it till next weekend. Here’s some late night suggestions for finding the smile that your football team stole from you.
On Monday, it’s a celebration. A second anniversary celebration on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. C’mon admit it. There were some doubters out there who thought Colbert wasn’t going to make it to this anniversary. Well Stephen not only made it, he’s celebrating it on Monday. However, the good times can only last so long before someone comes along to ruin the festive mood. On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert welcomes political party pooper, Hillary Rodman Clinton.
Plus, you can start your week with a comedy icon on the Tonight Show on Monday. John Cleese, the Python who once turned down a knighthood, is accepting an invitation to visit Jimmy Fallon. Strange how things work out. Also, it’s turning into a big month for Shane Torres. His new comedy album “Established 1981” which is available on iTunes, was just released last week and on Monday, he returns to perform stand up on Conan.
Tuesdays highlights include the return of The Jim Jefferies Show with new episodes on Comedy Central. Also, Gilbert Gottfried will be on Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk about the new documentary about his life and career. You can enjoy the trailer for “Gilbert” here on the IBang. And Kevin James is on the Tonight Show, hopefully to explain killing off his “Kevin Can Wait” TV wife to make room for Leah Remini. Oh wait. I think we explained it right there.
On Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon goes for extra-funny with guests Ben Stiller and Fred Armisen. Carson Daly is booking double-funny on Last Call on Wednesday as well, with guests Ari Shaffir and Tig Notaro.
Thursday, we get a brand new episode of The Chris Gethard Show on truTV with special guest Wanda Sykes. Also, The President Show will be celebrating all the accomplishments that have been a part of the President’s legacy since he began his own talk show on Comedy Central. It’s “The President Show: A Nation in Pieces” at 11pm. Plus, Trevor Noah’s new, big, fat Daily Show contract with Comedy Central must have included getting some wealthier guests on the show too. In a non-comedy highlight, on Thursday, Trevor welcomes the richest man walking the planet, Bill Gates.
