What Late Night Has Planned After Trump’s First State of the Union
The very first State of the Union Address will be delivered by President Trump tonight live at 9PM EST/6PM PST.
Of course, late night will not miss an opportunity to get right in on the aftermath as soon as POTUS finishes attempting (maybe) to speak like an adult.
So, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will air immediately after coverage ends on CBS (meaning it’ll be primetime here on the West Coast). He’ll have the hosts of Pod Save America: Tommy Vietor, Jon Favreau & Jon Lovett, 2 Dope Queens’ Jessica Williams & Phoebe Robinson as guests.
Trevor Noah and Jordan Klepper will go for a one-two punch by both going live after the State of the Union with The Daily Show and The Opposition at 11PM EST/8PM PST & 11:30PM EST/8:30PM PST respectively.
Oh, don’t forget that Jimmy Kimmel will being interviewing Stormy Daniels, the porn star that is making claims to have had an extramarital affair with Trump tonight as well at his normal time of 11:35PM.

Colbert Announces “Russia Week” for The Late Show
When you saw that mysterious picture of one Stephen Colbert in Russia, it was unclear as to what exactly Colbert was up to.
We have no doubt that there will be some gem remote segments of Colbert being let loose around Russia, so keep a close eye to see what exactly Stephen got away with starting next Monday and going through Friday.
H. Jon Benjamin, The “Jazz Daredevil” Who Still Doesn’t Really Know How to Play Piano, Jams Out with Stephen Colbert and Jon Batiste and Stay Human
One of the silliest things that H. Jon Benjamin has ever done in his illustrious career as a professional silly person is recording an entire jazz album with real jazz musicians without really knowing how to play jazz (or an instrument for that matter).
The album was called “Well, I Should Have…* Jon Benjamin-Jazz Daredevil” and the session players really didn’t know what was going on before they started recording.
On last night’s Colbert, Benjamin did a rare live performance from the album with Colbert’s house band Jon Batiste and Stay Human as well as Stephen Colbert himself on trumpet*.
*Stephen also says he doesn’t know how to play the trumpet.
Enjoy some top shelf goofing around here.
