The NFL season well underway and by now, you can tell if your team has some promise or has already come off the rails. Either way, take some relief from the stress of your team’s hopes and woes and enjoy some late night comedy this week while you await another Sunday of NFL pressure. And speaking of sports, this is for any fans of Conan, TeamCoco is off all this week because the show is being pre-empted for the MLB playoffs.
And now, on to the highlights for this week in late night comedy.
On Monday, John Goodman is on Jimmy Kimmel Live and perhaps he has some answers to the question we’ve all been asking- How does ABC kill off Roseanne? Goodman will be promoting the new spin-off from “Roseanne” called “The Connors” and if anyone can gets some info about the impending doom awaiting Roseanne Connor, it’s Jimmy Kimmel.
On Wednesday night, you can enjoy an encore presentation of Tiffany Haddish on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Tiffany is probably the hottest comedian right now making her jump to the big screen with the comedies, “Night School” starring Kevin Hart in theaters everywhere now and the upcoming “Nobody’s Fool” out on November 2nd.
Friday night, it’s the national television stand up debut on LeClerc Andre on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Friday night stand up comedy debuts is becoming a welcomed tradition on the Tonight Show which is introducing America to a fantastic new generation of comedians echoing the way it would happen on the Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson during its 30 year run. LeClerc was part of the “New Faces: Unrepped” comedy showcase at the Just for Laughs Festival this past summer in Montreal and now Friday will be another night he never forgets.
Finally on Saturday, it’s the return of Seth Meyers to Saturday Night Live. As successful as Seth has been hosting Late Night on NBC, he’s never returned to host SNL where was a cast member, head writer and an anchor on Weekend Update. It should be an amazing episode of Saturday Night Live this coming weekend.
Enjoy plenty of late nights this week!
