Happy Christmas Eve! Let’s see what Santa is bringing us in the way of late night comedy this week. It looks like Ol’ St. Nick has brought us plenty of reruns because the late night hosts are all taking this week off. Tonight, only Jimmy Kimmel is offering a repeat with Colbert, Fallon, Meyers, Corden and Noah all being preempted in favor of Christmas Eve holiday programming. By the way, tonight instead of the Tonight Show and Late Night, NBC is airing Christmas Eve Mass, which we’re sorry Catholics, does not fulfill your Sunday obligation. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is off all this week on Comedy Central and in its place, CC is giving everyone a chance to catch up with Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and Butters with “South Park” marathons this week in late night.
Looking at this week’s late night repeats, here’s some comedy highlights with some very funny guests you might have missed on their first go-around.
Brian Regan has a new Netflix series called “Stand Up and Away” which is available for streaming starting today. Jerry Seinfeld is the executive producer, which explains the “Superman” reference in the title. Both these stand up virtuosos will be on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show repeat on Tuesday, Christmas night with Brian discussing his new show with Fallon. And on this episode, Seinfeld even assists Jimmy Fallon with his monologue. This is definitely a Tonight Show worth catching again. And if you want to know more about “Stand Up and Away,” on Netflix, be sure to check out our article by Debra Kessler, “Brian Regan Finally Has His Own TV Show; Here’s How Jerry Seinfeld Helped Make It Happen” on the IBang.
On Wednesday, comedy icon Robert Klein is on a re-airing of the Tonight Show on NBC. Thursday features late night legend Chris Elliott on a JKL rerun and there’s a stand up performance from Joe Zimmerman on an encore of the Late Late Show with James Corden. Late night on Friday is crowded with plenty of repeats featuring comedy guests including Howie Mandel on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Melissa McCarthy on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and through the magic of reruns, Nick Kroll on both the Tonight Show and the Late Late Show.
Here’s wishing you some merry little late nights.
