Balancing Standup and Writing for 'Late Night' with Michelle Wolf

Not many comics would close their New Faces Showcase at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival with a three-minute joke tying together men’s masturbation habits and JFK’s assassination. That one’s got a high degree of difficulty.

Michelle Wolf made it look easy.

Wolf, 29, was among the standouts last month at Just For Laughs, the comedy industry’s premiere festival. The NYC-based comic, who’s also a writer/performer on Late Night with Seth Meyers, even earned herself a slot performing in front of 3,000 people for Seth Rogen’s televised gala.

The minds behind Garfunkel and Oates paid a visit to the Late Night desk last night, where they chatted with Meyers about first meeting each other when they were both on a bad date, the deal they struck with John Oates to use his name, and how Micucci didn't start swearing until she started singing with Lindhome.

Neal Brennan Shares an Update from Tracy Morgan on 'Late Night'

Back in early June, former SNL and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan was a victim of a car crash in New Jersey, and on last night's Late Night, Neal Brennan shared some news from a recent phone call with Morgan, which proves that while Tracy still has a long road to physical recovery, his sense of humor has gone completely unharmed.

Fred Armisen's ongoing remote "FredEx" segment continued last night, and this time he used the props to turn himself into an "American building designer" who not only questions the existence of angels, but the existence of existence itself.

Grown-Up Annie Pays Seth Meyers a Visit on 'Late Night'

Late Night writer Michelle Wolf made an appearance as the show's favorite orphan Grown-Up Annie last night, and as usual, things aren't going very well for her. Either way she's got a great attitude about life, many ways to self-medicate, and her very own strip club, so hopefully she'll catch a break from her bad luck any day now.

Chris Pratt Tells Seth Meyers About the Time He Flashed Amy Poehler

Despite NBC explicitly telling him not to make public jokes about it, last night Chris Pratt told Seth Meyers a great story about the time he flashed Amy Poehler while filming a scene during the second season of Parks and Recreation instead of putting on the skin-colored briefs he was supposed to wear. Meyers even plays the clip of Poehler's reaction for good measure.

Fred Armisen Plays the Weirdest Johns Hopkins Surgeon Ever on 'Late Night'

So far in his remote-from-Portland segment "FredEx," Fred Armisen has portrayed an American building designer who questions the existence of angels and a Peruvian Beatles cover band member who discusses global warming, and last night he returned with the weirdest character yet with the help of a wig, tacky hoodie, and pair of headphones. Naturally he turns it into an unorthodox surgeon who is in love with everyone he knows.
