Many Late Night Talk Show segments have been spun-off into shows of their own, “Carpool Karaoke” and “Lip Sync Battle” to name a few, but I think I just discovered the next BIG THING in Late Night Television. It’s Called “Maybe Coming Soon” and it is a segment where Stephen Colbert: host of ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ and his guest makeup plots for various movies they are “allegedly in”. Now John Oliver is no stranger to the comedy talk show market, he is the host of his own show ‘Last Week Tonight’ on HBO. The two comedy greats had some fun messing around with some great plot points, that’ll have you crackin’ up!

I haven’t been the biggest watcher of ‘The Late Show’ since Letterman retired, but this segment rejuvenated my love of late night comedy talk shows. There used to be Late Night Wars, but I love that all the late night hosts; Fallon, Kimmel, Colbert, Corden, etc. have great relationships with each other. If they all succeed it’s great for the genre of Late Night television.
YouTube is a great avenue for all and whether you prefer one over the other, you can always get a taste of what you may be missing. In this instance, I was missing an incredible bit by one of the greatest comedians on television. Who’s your favorite ‘LATE NIGHT” host?
