• Late night roundup: Joe List, Sam Morril, Matthew Broussard

    It was a man’s week on the late night shows—but these dudes more than paid their dues and ground their way to respect in the comedy community.

During our time there, we chatted with a few comics, one of which was winner of the marquee event of the fest– the four-night stand-up competition: Sam Morril. The New York City-based comic snagged $1,000, the promise of at least four weeks national headlining work and more. Did you feel
