If there's one thing you need to remember about comedians, it's that despite the chuckles, belly laughs, and guffaws that they can inspire in other people, they tend to be kind of grumpy on their own. Just look at Ricky Gervais! He's been nominated for yet another Emmy (he's already won two), but all the guy can think about is the thank you that's owed to him from yet another comedian, who just so happens to also be an Emmy nominee.
Late Night with Seth Meyers
You know who Kate McKinnon is? (Yes, you know who she is. She's one of the best things on 'SNL,' but that's not where this is going.) Kate McKinnon is someone who cares very deeply about cats. Just because she wrote and performed a skit with Charlize Theron about crazy cat shelter ladies does not mean she does not care about cats.
College is a time of exploration, adventure and self-discovery. For some people, that means "doing drugs." Even your new best friend Jenny Slate, star of this summer's charming and daring 'Obvious Child,' turned to marijuana during her college years, and the results were pretty mixed, as she shared with Seth Meyers on last night's 'Late Night.'
It's not often that a fully planned and perfectly executed performance feels so very nonsensical, but that's exactly what happened when Sia came to 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' with a very special guest, Lena Dunham.
It's billed as "The Greatest Sketch Ever," but is this little five-minute slice of wacky weirdness from last night's 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' really the best sketch ever? Well, probably not, but it's certainly one of the best, strangest and most original things to hit the late-night airwaves over the past few weeks, and it's definitely the kind of stuff Meyers and his crew should be doing much more of.
Now this is quite the late-night coup, as 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers managed to entice both halves of Hollywood's best couple, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, to hit up his show. At the same time. As guests. For the first time ever!
Jennifer Lawrence is just like us, you guys. She goes to fancy parties with her best friend and yells things at people she likes and then maybe, possibly, totally throws up on a porch. It's just that the details are a little different when it comes to the celeb -- like the people she yells at are stars like Brad Pitt, and she goes to fancy parties after events like the Oscars, and she might be tossing her cookies on the porch of Madonna's manager. Normal. Not normal? And who judged her for said puking, a story the it-girl shared with Seth Meyers on his 'Late Night' last night?
Seth Meyers essentially unleashed the creative floodgates of his former 'SNL' brethren with his 'Second Chance Theatre.' The host unveiled the new segment on 'Late Night' earlier this week, thanks to the instant classic that was Will Forte's 'Jennjamin Franklin,' his favorite sketch that never made it to the 'SNL' screen but got new life when Meyers let Forte and friends perform it on the 'Late Night' stage.
Seth Meyers' 'Late Night' just recently unveiled its Second Chance Theatre, an attempt to let former 'SNL' performers have a venue to show off beloved sketches that never made it to the air on the venerable comedy show. Meyers, however, is not the only former 'SNL' head writer to recycle old material -- Tina Fey did it, too!
Over the years, 'SNL' nixed its fair share of sketches from their late-night installments -- for one, take a look at this bizarre sketch from Andrew Garfield's latest hosting run -- but now they're getting a second chance to see the light of day. Seth Meyers, who served as 'SNL' head writer for nearly 10 years, is determined to resurrect some never-aired favorites for his new audience on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.'
