Ahead of David Spade’s debut Monday on Comedy Central as its newest late-night host, the network announced the first group of guest panelists for “Lights Out.”
Spade will be joined by Neal Brennan, Whitney Cummings and Erik Griffin on Monday night’s premiere episode. Additional guests for his first week include Jen Kirkman, Theo Von, Amy Schumer, Nick Swardson, Steve Byrne, Kaley Cuoco, Jim Jefferies, Al Madrigal, Sarah Tiana and his former “SNL” cast mate Dana Carvey.
According to the network, “Lights Out” will feature Spade’s “signature take” on the pop culture news of the day and include a rotating group of Spade’s comedian and celebrity friends, while also incorporating sketches and field segments.
The show is executive produced by Spade, Alex Murray and Marc Gurvitz. Brad Wollack and Tom Brunelle of Free 90 Media serve as executive producers and showrunners. Frank Sebastiano is head writer and executive producer, with Chelsea Davison as supervising producer. Liz Plonka directs.
Jonas Larsen, Tara Schuster and Daniel Wolfberg are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
“Lights Out” will be Comedy Central’s latest go at filling the late-night slot vacated by “The Colbert Report” when Stephen Colbert moved to CBS’s “The Late Show” back in 2014. Previous attempts included “The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore” and Jordan Klepper’s short-lived “The Opposition.”
“Lights Out With David Spade” will air Mondays through Thursdays at 11:30pm ET/PT on Comedy Central.
