Amy Poehler, Kanye West, Joe Biden, and More Will Be Seth Meyers’s First Guests
Late Night with Seth Meyers is premiering on NBC on Monday, February 24th, and the show just announced the list of guests for its first week. Here’s the full list:
Mon., Feb. 24: Amy Poehler, Vice President Joe Biden and musical guest A Great Big World.
Tues., Feb. 25: Kanye West and author Robyn Doolittle (Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story).
Wed., Feb. 26: Kelly Ripa, Brad Paisley and musical guest Brad Paisley.
Thurs., Feb. 27: Lena Dunham, Anthony Mackie and musical guest John Mayer Trio.
Fri., Feb. 28: Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart, Sophia Bush and comedian Michael Che.
Meyers said a year ago that he wanted his former “Weekend Update” co-anchor Amy Poehler as his inaugural guest, and it worked out. Meyers’s first string of guests are a pretty eclectic bunch, with actors, politicians, musicians, talk show hosts, and a standup, SNL writer Michael Che, in the mix. Meyers made a big announcement earlier this week that SNL alum Fred Armisen will serve as his bandleader.
