Quincy Jones Makes His Late Night Debut on and Gets a Date for His HBO Special “Burning the Light”

After being diagnosed with terminal cancer last year, comedian Quincy Jones has gotten more than he might have imagined in the time since then. 

In the last few months, he has gotten a stand-up special crowdfunded and shot, been on Ellen twice, got his special picked up by HBO, and now, a Conan set that marks his late night stand-up debut. Also, it was just announced that his special Burning the Light will premiere on HBO on Thursday, June 2nd at 10PM.

For someone that was given a year to live, he seems to be doing alright.
