It’s one of those really good weeks where the late night schedule is filled to over-flowing with comedy guests. There’s so much great comedy lined up for this week in late night television, let’s get right to all the highlights!
Start your week on Monday night with Jimmy Kimmel Live. The show is back in its home of Los Angeles after doing a week of shows from Brooklyn, NY. and Luenell will be a guest on the first JKL of the week. Luenell co-stars in the new highly talked about Eddie Murphy movie, “Dolemite Is My Name.” She has some great scenes with Eddie Murphy, and if you haven’t seen “Dolemite” yet, it’s currently streaming on Netflix and the comedy movie is also out in select theaters.
Tuesday night, David Spade has put together an interesting pairing for his Lights Out panel. Two of Spade’s guests are Christina Pazsitzky and “The Machine” Bert Kreischer. What’s great about having these two on the same free-form panel is that Bert is the comedy nemesis of Christina’s husband, master story-teller Tom Segura. Their long running feud is the stuff of comedy legend. So, we’ll see how many of Bert Kreischer’s comments are directed towards Christina P’s hubby. Not only that, these are two of the fastest comedians touring today, so the commentary should be lightning fast on Tuesday’s Lights Out with David Spade.
Wednesday, Deon Cole will be Conan O’Brien’s guest on a new Conan. Deon is a veteran comedian and was one of Conan’s writers on the ill-fated “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.” You also know him from his role on the ABC hit sitcom “Black-ish.” Deon’s brand new Netflix hour “Deon Cole: Cole-Hearted” was just released this month on the streaming service and it’s currently available whenever you need a good laugh.
Also on Wednesday, watch for comedy icon Louie Anderson on Lights Out with David Spade at 11:30pm on Comedy Central. Louie is currently on tour with co-comedy superstar Rita Rudner. And also in a non-comedy highlight, James Corden has something for “Terminator” fans, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton will be together on the Late Late Show. The newest chapter of the “Terminator” saga “Terminator: Dark Fate” is in theaters this Friday.
We here at the Interrobang are excited for Thursday night because guess who’s back on the Tonight Show!? It’s Pete Lee! Congratulations to Pete! He’s making his 5th appearance on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. His first stand up performance just 2 years ago received a standing ovation from Fallon’s audience and he’s become a Tonight Show regular ever since. Pete is currently on tour with She & Him, that’s the comedy folk duo combination of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. Pete Lee is currently helping them out by opening their new “Christmas Show Tour” dates for their East Coast performances.
Looking at your weekend, Stephen Colbert continues his tradition of hosting other late night hosts on the Late Show. Conan O’Brien is becoming one of Colbert’s favorite guests and Friday on a new Late Show, he welcomes back the host of Conan. Then on Saturday, it’s new episode of Saturday Night Live as Season 45 rolls on. This week’s host is Kristen Stewart. The always smiling (sarcasm) Kristen Stewart will be hosting SNL for her second time since 2017 this coming weekend.
If you’re already up at night and watching TV, keep going! It’s too late to turn off the television now.
