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.
Get a Taste of Tiffany Haddish’s Book “The Last Black Unicorn” from Her Daily Show Appearance This Week
Like Trevor Noah says in this interview, Tiffany Haddish is the human equivalent of a sun shining light to us all.
She shares some stories with Noah that are all written down (and spoken in audiobook form) in her new book The Last Black Unicorn, which you can (and should) get here.
Dulcé Sloan Will Be The Daily Show’s Newest Correspondent
Beginning this week, Dulcé Sloan will be the newest member of the Daily Show team and, we think, will bring a whole new facet of attitude to the show.
The Opposition with Jordan Klepper’s First Teaser Is Here and It Looks Like Klepper Might Be Picking Up Where Colbert Report Left Off
You know, it just occurred to us that The Opposition with Jordan Klepper might be the spiritual successor to The Colbert Report.
Klepper, now a former Daily Show correspondent, is set to satirize conspiracy theoriests, alt-right, etc. by taking their side to the nth degree, similar to the beloved, ironic, conservative political pundit character Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report.
See for yourself in this teaser, then look for The Opposition with Jordan Klepper’s premiere on Monday, September 25th following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
Jordan Klepper to Do a Whole Special on Guns Next Month
In fact, he’s calling it “Jordan Klepper Solves Guns” and talks to the likes of Senator Cory Booker, Former Army Special Ops Soldier Pat McNamara, Members of the Georgia Security Force Militia, and gun experts, gun nuts, etc.
Whether or not Klepper actually fulfills the premise of the title of this special, you should probably watch it as Klepper has been doing solid work in the field for The Daily Show.
Jordan Klepper Solves Guns premieres on Sunday, Jun. 11th at 10PM on Comedy Central.
There’s a Daily Show with Jon Stewart Reunion on The Late Show Tonight
At the stroke of 11:35PM on tonight’s The Late Show, Stephen Colbert will reassemble the old Daily Show gang including Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Ed Helms, and Rob Corddry.
Like the poster above hints at, it really is an Avengers-esque reunion as each of those Daily Show correspondents have become legitimate stars on their own.
Since Comey got taken down today, odds are that they’ll have a nice, big camera pan off of all of them for some off-screen celebrating.
Hasan Minhaj Delivers (and Then Some [and Even More]) as Host of 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner
It was only a year ago that Hasan Minhaj was at a different podium as host of the RTCA Dinner (the “JV nerd prom”?), delivering a set that was both unapologetic in its clever barbs as well as heartfelt in its message.
Most RTCA Dinner hosts don’t get to graduate to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner the very next year. Then again, these are times that are often without precedent.
Hasan Minhaj, as we’ve seen him do time and time again as a stand-up, storyteller, and a correspondent on The Daily Show, dished out his finely detailed jokes last night with a certain brutal grace and was more on point than several WHCD hosts before him. Had this been the Obama Administration, we think Hasan might have not had trouble following him like other comedians have had over the years.
Don’t be surprised if Hasan ends up getting his very own show soon from this performance.
Thus far, Trump has not tweeted about the happenings of the WHCD dinner directly, but we can imagine that it might include something like “Sad!” a few dozen times.
So, for free speech, for free press, for comedy, and for all of our sanity, you now might want to watch and enjoy Hasan at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Obama’s Anger Translator Gets in Final Words on Trump Becoming President
Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele team up once more for their Obama and Anger Translator Luther sketch that just might sum up how you’re feeling with less than two weeks before Trump’s inauguration. It actually might sum up your feelings more loudly than you could have imagined.
