A Persnickety Tig Notaro Won Late Night This Week

It was another week of meta comedy about the concept of late night this week. Joe Jonas has thrown his hat in the ring to usurp James Corden as the host of The Late Late Show, and Chelsea Handler announced her bid to host another late-night show ASAP. It was the second most powerful announcement this week vis-à-vis speeding things up. EmRata made a good argument that TikTok and/or his podcast are more important than the late night chats on Late Night By Seth Meyers. (#SethMeyersBitchEra.) Jonathan Majors gave Trevor Noah his flowers before his midnight departure, which made sense. And Jon Stewart touched base with ex-bae Stephen Colbert. (More on that later – specifically on Number 5 of this list.)

I have a complaint about what Jon Stewart says in the following episodes about how he wants to correct disbelief and hate speech, but the AO3 tags speak for themselves, re: Stewart’s deep love for Colbert:

Nobody does schadenfreude quite like Jimmy Kimmel. He might be the worst late-night guest, because even Andy Cohen often prefers to let others beef for his own enjoyment rather than get in the muck himself. Last week, Kimmel told an interesting anecdote about how Dr. How much Oz hates Trump, and this week he made a lot of jokes about how much the Trump family hates him. Choosing to tell the story of Tiffany’s middle-of-the-road marriage from a guest’s perspective was a kiss for Kimmel’s chef. It was exactly the level of dishy we’ve come to expect.

When he pretended to be overwhelmed and shocked the conversational head of Twitter, The Daily Show‘s Desi Lydic was all ours. RIP to Twitter, it’s a place where absolute dipshits can say stupid things and it won’t affect the world. Until these dipshits bought the platform. Lydic’s performance was the broken cog in the late-capitalist machine that has become a classic on TikTok, a platform that will surely surpass Twitter in popularity sometime next week. Again, RIP.

Also the last place on this list goes to the classic talk-show performance by the stars. EmRata and Anya Taylor-Joy were both fighting for the spot, but Taylor-Joy secured it by two points. One, he had a story about being saved from falling down the Met Gala steps by a dang show host, and two, he had an anecdote involving the Beach Boys. If there’s one vote in this crazy business we call show business, it’s Mike Love’s. Not sure why, ask John Stamos.

Tig Notaro entered The Late Show with Stephen Colbert stage with a rad-as-fuck cane, in part because he went hard in the paint on Colbert’s Pickled show. His leg was already broken, apparently, but he was committed to the gig enough to tough it out with a powerful pickleball. He said as he opened it Late Show look by using a rad alligator-head cane. She then said that “free speech” is not the reason célèbre would want you to believe other mothers. Then first “yes” at the pickleball game, and what does that mean for his career? Can he say “no” to the gig, or is there some mental block about it? It’s a great talk-show appearance because it’s topical, fun, cute, and has a cool-wrapped candy bar involved.
