By Mark Whitney
About this podcast
The only show that brings order to comedic chaos! It's hard-hitting satirist, Mark Whitney's year-long search for the longest laugh in late night. Mark looks back and unpacks the best of late night, expanding upon or challenging the official narrative behind the jokes served up by America's retinue of late night raconteurs, including: Bill Maher, John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Samantha Bee, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Trevor Noah, Jim Jefferies, Anthony Atamanuik, Colin Jost, and Michael Che . At the end of every show some lucky late night host is bestowed with the soon-to-be-coveted SIS BOOM BAA Award for Joke of the Week! “The terrific Mark Whitney!” –Peter Marks, The Washington Post; “A vivid, never boring combination of legal scholarship, humor and moral insight.” Janice Cane, D.C. Theatre Scene; “As entertaining as he is infuriating.” –Heather Goss, DCist.com; "A keen student of the human experience, Mark Whitney occupies a unique place in the world." ~Robert McKee, Storylogue
