Presidents’ Day was a quiet week for late night stand-up with several shows taking the full week off. Jimmy Kimmell Live! and Conan aired reruns, but a couple of comedians delivered tight sets for those tuning in. Mo Amer stopped by The Tonight Show while perennial veteran Adam Ferrara made an appearance on The Late Late Show. Here’s a couple of stand-up sets to get you 10 minutes closer to the weekend.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Mo Amer debuted a Netflix special last year, Vagabond. Amer made big news a few years ago after tweeting his experience sitting next to Eric Trump on a trans-Atlantic flight. On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Falon, Amer discussed his status as a Palestinian Muslim refugee—of course, adding a humorous spin to the otherwise horrid political situation.
Late Night with Seth Meyers
Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Late Late Show with James Corden
Adam Ferrara gained notoriety as a TV actor on the Denis Leary FX series Rescue Me. The stand-up vet regularly tours the country telling jokes and doing characters that made him the heavy headliner he is today. It was wonderful seeing Ferrara stop by The Late Late Show with James Corden for a tight five.
