The Four Percent


Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

This week, Conan is all comedy, Stephen talks to Billy about Larry, and SNL’s second half of the season is underway.

Sure, we’re looking at a week with no football while the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take a weekend off before playing in Super Bowl LV in Tampa. But the good news is that late night television is loaded with plenty of comedy this week to give us some laughs.

Conan has all new shows this week and the guest roster is filled with top comedians. On Monday, Conan O’Brien welcomes Nicole Byer and not just to his show, but also to the Team Coco Podcast Network. Team Coco podcasting is the new home to Nicole’s podcast “Why Won’t You Date Me?“. Tuesday night, Conan’s guest is Jason Segel who is taking a dramatic turn with his latest movie, “Our Friend” co-starring Casey Affleck and Dakota Johnson. “Our Friend” is available On Demand now.

The rest of the week is just as funny on Conan. On Wednesday, Conan’s guest will be a man who’s been one of the top comedians since the ’80s, George Wallace. The veteran comedian will be promoting his new book “Bulltwit and Whatnot. The Online Ramblings of George Wallace” which is available everywhere books are sold. And finally on Thursday, Mike Birbiglia will be Conan O’Brien’s guest. Birbigs has three virtual Valentine’s Day week shows coming up and tickets are on sale now at Birbigs.com.

Here’s some comedy highlights for the rest of late night this week. On Monday, one of the premiere Las Vegas comedy teams will be on the Late Late Show with James Corden. Penn & Teller will be promoting the new season of their competitive magic series on the CW, “Penn & Teller Fool Us“.

Tuesday evening, watch for former SNL cast member Brooks Wheelan to visit fellow former SNL member, Seth Meyers on Late Night. Ted Danson will be stopping by Late Night on Tuesday as well to talk to Seth about his new sitcom “Mr. Mayor” which airs Thursday evenings on NBC.

Wednesday night, the man who is everyone’s best friend in show business will be on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Billy Crystal is Colbert’s guest and he’ll be talking about the passing of his good friend Larry King, who Billy said was like a member of his family. Billy Crystal has definitely become our national eulogist.

Also on Wednesday evening, the fabulous Bridget Everett will be on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon to promote her new movie, “Breaking News in Yuba County” which is in select theaters on February 12th.

And then Late Night with Seth Meyers caps off a great Wednesday night of comedy with guests Kate Berlant & Jacqueline Novak. These two very funny ladies will be on Late Night together to promote their podcast “POOG with Kate Berlant and Jacqueline Novak” which is available on Apple Podcasts and iHeartRadio. And if you’re wondering what “POOG” is? It’s the opposite of “GOOP” which is the name of Gwyneth Paltrow’s podcast.

Looking at Thursday, George Lopez will be virtually stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new movie which will will show his dramatic side. George is plugging his new film, “No Man’s Land” which shines a light on illegal immigration in America. It’s available in select theaters and on YouTube now and co-stars Frank Grillo, Andie MacDowell, Jake Allyn, Alex MacNicoll and of course, George Lopez.

Friday is your chance to catch London Hughes on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Her new Netflix special “London Hughes: To Catch a Dick” is available for streaming now as well as her comedy special series “The Netflix Afterparty.” It co-stars David Spade and Fortune Feimster and is ready for streaming now.

Finally on Saturday, after a long winter’s break, SNL is back with live shows with the Saturday Night Live Mid-Season Premiere hosted by John Krasinski who you know from the American version of “The Office” and “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” which is available on Amazon Prime. John Krasinski’s musical guest on this all-new Saturday Night Live will be Machine Gun Kelly.

Enjoy the week. And be careful of those scalpers. Not the ones selling Super Bowl tickets. The ones selling vaccines.
