There’s plenty of late night comedy planned for this week on the networks and cable. Some nights are so full of comedy guests, you may need two DVRs to capture it all. Here’s your comedy highlights for this week.
The week starts out with a couple of stand up comedy performances to look forward to seeing. First on Monday, Nore Davis is the one and only guest on Conan. Nore tweeted out that he’ll be doing both some new stand up and then sitting down for an interview with Conan O’Brien. You’ve seen Nore on Conan before as well as “Gotham Comedy Live“, “Comedy Knockout” on truTV, Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer” and “The Chris Gethard Show“. Nore Davis’ comedy album, “Too Woke” was just released last fall and you can get a taste of the album by listening to a track from “Nore Davis: Too Woke“ here on the IBang.
Tuesday, it’s a rare stand up performance on the Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS when Chad Daniels brings his stand up act to late night. And speaking of rare, Chad is one of only 13 stand up comedians to have ever performed on the short-lived “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.” Chad’s first comedy special “As Is” is currently available on Amazon as well as the comedy documentary “I Need You To Kill” which follows Chad, Tom Segura, and Pete Lee on tour in China.
Watch for Seth Rogen to be network hopping this week to promote his new romantic comedy, “Long Shot” co-starring Charlize Theron as well as Bob Odenkirk and Randall Park. It’s a rom-com that actually looks like it may have more “com” in it than “rom.” Seth will be on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday on CBS and then he heads to NBC to guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday night.
Looking towards the weekend, on Friday night, Craig Ferguson returns to his old late night stomping ground CBS, except he’ll be on hour earlier than he was when he worked at the network. Craig will be a guest on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert at 11:30pm.
Then on Saturday night, Adam Sandler who was a cast member on SNL from 1990 to 1995, in addition to having a superstar comedy movie career, is finally returning to host Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend. Sandler famously told Conan O’Brien that he and fellow cast member Chris Farley were both fired from the show. We can’t wait to see if that comes up during his monologue when he’s on EP Lorne Michaels’ stage on Saturday night.
Here’s hoping you have a week full of late nights!
