Andrew Sleighter Delivers the First Stand Up Set (on TV) for 2022

At the dawn of 2021, the prospect of late night was much different, well, actually, slightly different than it is now. Most shows didn’t have a live audience and there was a good majority reliance on doing interviews via Zoom or some other teleconferencing platform. While Fallon and Seth Meyers both caught COVID-19 in the last few weeks, late night is pushing forward somewhat as it once did, featuring stand-up comedians doing short sets included.

The slickly funny Andrew Sleighter starts off stand-up comedy for 2022 with their first televised set and, unlike in 2021, it’s not on a boat or on a rooftop, but on a big, fancy soundstage with a live audience. Omicron is refueling the pandemic, which we’re very much still in, but Sleighter gives a great take on his quarantine epiphany: millennials’ horrid financial health compared to their actual health.
