Laurie Kilmartin has been making people laugh for a long time. She's been working as a stand-up for most of her adult life, putting out 3 albums (including 2021's Corset) and appearing on late night shows like CONAN, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
If you've watched Late Night with Seth Meyers over the last few years, you've likely seen lots of Second City alumn Jenny Hagel, either performing alongside Meyers and fellow writer Amber Ruffin for the popular "Jokes Seth Can't Tell" segment or appearing in various other bits and sketches.
Robby Hoffman is an original comedy voice whose writing and delivery on stage puts her at the top of the stand-up game.
Getting into graphic design -- originally comic book lettering, and later television design -- Pierre Bernard had no aspirations to be a television performer. But a few years after starting at Late Night with Conan O'Brien in the early 90s, he made a random appearance on the show sparked by a design of his on a "New State Quarters" sketch, which was a huge hit.
I'll try not to write too much about Conan, since he's pretty much dominated this spot the last 2 weeks, but I'd be remiss if I didn't talk about his final Tonight Show just a little bit. Even if you're not a fan of his style of writing and performing, you have to admit (okay, maybe not everyone, but most do) that his final show was a spectacular hour of television.
Yes, we follow late night television a lot here on ShowbizMonkeys.com.
Boy oh boy, do we have things to talk about! This past week has brought late night TV into the top headlines, as NBC is looking to shake things up once again by moving Jay Leno back into his old post-news slot, potentially screwing over Conan O'Brien in the process.
Not only are almost all the late night shows back from the holiday hiatus tonight, but the start of the new year also means ShowbizMonkeys.com is looking back at both the 00s and 2009 itself. We begin that look back tonight, as I present our 2009 Late Night Awards!!!!!
Okay, so they're not that exciting... but here they are anyway.
I don't have very much time to write a lot before posting this week's late night talk shows listings.
It's time for some great late night television!
