Running Late with Scott Rogowsky: Brooklyn’s Live Late Night Comedy Talk Show
Running Late with Scott Rogowsky: Brooklyn’s Live Late Night Comedy Talk Show
Drawing on the late-night tradition from Carson to Cavett to Conan, host Scott Rogowsky and his sidekick/dad Marty welcome an eclectic mix of comedians, musicians, authors, actors, and local celebs to the couch for a unique live talk show experience that needs to be experienced to be experienced. Called “always jubilant, always fascinating” by the New York Times, a “millennial comic on the rise” by Mic, and “The King of Brooklyn Late Night” by some other thing somewhere else, Scott brings “the comedy talk show for the Internet Age” (New York Magazine) back to Littlefield for this special NY SUPER WEEK show, and he couldn’t be happier about it. Past guests include: Jon Hamm, Regis Philbin, Steve Buscemi, Dick Cavett, David Cross, Amy Sedaris, Jerry Springer, Kevin Nealon, Gilbert Gottfried, Cecily Strong, Chris Elliott, David Wain, Jim Gaffigan, Nathan Fielder.
W. Kamau Bell
W. Kamau Bell
As the host and star of the FX show "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell," Kamau is one of the fastest rising stars in the political comedy world. Praised by Punchline Magazine as “one of our country’s most adept racial commentators with a blistering wit,” Kamau was recently named “Comedian of the Year” by SF Weekly and “Best Comedian” by the SF Bay Guardian. His new stand up album, Face Full of Flour, just made the 10 Best Comedy Albums of 2010 list at both iTunes and Punchline Magazine. Kamau’s critically acclaimed solo show, “The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour,” has long sold out runs in San Francisco and enjoyed an extended in New York as part of this year’s soloNova Festival at PS122. Kamau recently performed at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, where his set was filmed for HBO Canada, at the New York Comedy Festival, where he was a critic’s pick in Time Out NY, who gave it “FOUR STARS” and offered that, “Bell finds comic gold in the wide range of material he mines, offering provocative insights into an ugly reality.” The SF Weekly has called Kamau “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle and Margaret Cho,” though he was more excited that they called him “handsome.”
