It’s still a toss up as to which late night show will take the baton from Conan to most prominently feature stand-up during an episode. Thankfully, in the race that’s mainly between Corden and Fallon, plenty of great comedians are getting highlighted and really getting to do their thing.
NYC’s Emil Wakim is the latest to make their late night debut and Wakim really plays with the negative space (i.e. for comedy, extended pauses and dramatic passages) while painting a honest image of his intersectional biracial identity. It’s a pretty fun, very confident late night debut and you should give it a watch here.
