March Madness gets underway this week, but to escape the madness in your own lives, we have your complete listings for all the comedy guests booked on the late night talk shows this week to help you relax and have some laughs. Here’s your highlights for this week.
First on Tuesday, Jim Jefferies is back with a brand new season of “The Jim Jefferies Show” on Comedy Central. The tag line for the new season is “Don’t come ready to learn, because you won’t!” However, there’s a chance you might pick up something you didn’t know before because in Season 3, Jim plans on doing more segments and reporting from abroad to give “The Jim Jefferies Show” a more international flavor this season. Tuesday on the Season 3 premiere, Jim travels to Africa to meet the Akashinga (The Brave Ones), who are women who have trained to protect the endangered wildlife on their continent. Jim Jefferies looks to see if he has what it takes to join the Akashinga on Season 3 Premiere of “The Jim Jefferies Show” this Tuesday, at 10:30pm on Comedy Central.
Immediately following the season premiere of “The Jim Jefferies Show” on Comedy Central, get your late night asses over to TBS for Conan! On Tuesday, Team Coco hosts one of the best comedians touring today, Mark Normand. The co-host of the top rated podcast “Tuesdays with Stories“, Mark Normand will be performing stand up on the all-new Conan O’Brien show. Tuesday night will be Mark’s 7th appearance on Conan, then he’s off to Sin City for a run of shows at the Comedy Cellar Vegas at the Rio.

Finally on Tuesday, you’ll have time to catch SNL‘s Aidy Bryant on the Tonight Show on NBC. Both Aidy Bryant and Kobe Bryant are appearing on the Jimmy Fallon show Tuesday night, so it’s your chance to catch this very talented brother – sister combo. Lil Baby Aidy will be promoting her new hilarious show on Hulu called “Shrill.” In the new series, Aidy Bryant plays Annie who is taking control of her own life and destiny by no longer conforming to what the other people in her life expect her to be and look like. Annie makes this bold choice for better or for worse. “Shrill” is available for immediate binge watching now on Hulu and check out our piece on how “Aidy Bryant Wants To Take Back The Word ‘Fat‘” on the IBang.
Moving to Wednesday, two of the top touring theater comics are appearing in late night. First, “Kid Gorgeous” himself, John Mulaney is on Conan for the entire half-hour. Mulaney has some dates coming up in New Jersey and Pennsylvania where he’s co-headlining with Saturday Night Live‘s Pete Davidson before he heads out to perform at Clusterfest in San Francisco this summer. Find out more about the lineup at Clusterfest 2019 presented by Comedy Central. Then on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the very pregnant Amy Schumer will be promoting her brand new comedy special, “Growing,” which premieres on Netflix this Tuesday. In the special, Amy talks about the realities of being married and pregnant in her 30’s. You can watch a promo for “Amy Schumer: Growing” which is available here on the Interrobang.
Thursday, the person who was voted as having the top “Comedy Special of the Year” of 2018 by our IBang readers, Gad Elmaleh, will be sitting down with Conan O’Brien for a half-hour. Even though English is the second language for this hilarious immigrant comic, nothing was lost in the translation in his Netflix special, “Gad Elmaleh: American Dream” which is available for streaming.
Finally on Friday, the Tonight Show kicks off the weekend with some fresh stand up from James Veitch. He is one of the most unique comedians working today, as anyone who has caught any of James Veitch’s appearances on Conan in the past can tell you. Those appearances got James a spot on Conan O’Brien’s stand up tour this past Fall. His performances are some of the funniest multi-media presentations you’re going to see. Be sure to have your DVRs set for the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon this Friday when his guests will also include the stars of Comedy Central’s “Broad City” Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer.
Remember, the early bird catches the worm, but the late night bird catches all the great comedy.
