Just because late night hosts aren’t taping their usual programming from inside a studio doesn’t mean they’re all about to leave us high and dry, no no.
Out of the goodness of their hearts (and probably a smidge of boredom) the hosts of late night have started recording and uploading monologues from the confines of their respective homes.
Since they’re not in their usual work environment, they’ve all had to get creative and do the best with what they’ve got. Which means Jimmy Kimmel’s son sings his opening theme, Jimmy Fallon holds up his own logo scribbled on a sheet of paper, and Stephen Colbert sits behind a wall of bubbles in his bathtub instead of behind a desk. So the production value isn’t quite the same, but hey! It’s RAW, it’s REAL, it involves CHILDREN’S DRAWINGS, and you gotta respect that.
What’s everyone been up to lately? Well,
Stephen Colbert changed a bike tire
It was touch and go for a moment there but he got it done.
Jimmy Kimmel played Friends trivia with Courteney Cox
Can you believe she, Monica herself, actually had to BUY Friends on Amazon Prime?
Jimmy Fallon hung out with John Legend
And his kids, very brutally, did not feel like laughing at his jokes.
Trevor Noah talked to the one and only, Dr. Fauci
Okay so it’s not technically “late night”, whatever, time is a construct, shut up.
Seth Meyers gave us all an update on Trump’s insanity from the comfort of his library
Seriously, the guy has a library with a LADDER. Why are we not talking about this??
