Late Night Talk Shows have a new kid joining the schoolyard! Nikki Glaser, one of the funniest comedians in the country and semifinalist on Last Comic Standing, who’s incredibly popular podcast “You Had To Be There” alongside her partner Sara Schaefer (Former blogger for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon), will be moving into the old TRL studios in NYC, and debuting what promises to be a signature show for MTV, as well as Late Night (Competing against the likes of Chelsea Lately and The Daily Show), and bringing a new voice and mix to one of television’s most unique genres. It will be MTV’s first late night talk show since Jon Stewart. For their new show, Nikki and Sara will tell jokes, star in sketches, interview regular people on the street and welcome celebrity guests. “We’ve been looking for the next comedic point of view, a personality that really speaks to the Millennial audience,” says MTV head of programming David Janollari. “We think we have something really special in The Nikki and Sarah Show, particularly the two remarkable comedic personalities that are both smart and hilarious.”
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with the hilarious and awesome Nikki Glaser in NYC to talk about her foray into the Late Night Talk Show world, the personal and professional struggles that have led to this moment, what to expect from her and Sara on their new show, her friendship with comedy dynamo Amy Schumer who once again killed it roasting Roseanne Barr, why Justin Timberlake needs to get back to music, and sooo much more!! After meeting and chatting with Nikki, there is no doubt that this show will be a wild success, but it is also great to see great things happening to great people.
