This Week in Comedy: Phoebe Robinson’s first hour long special is premiering on Comedy Central. The special, titled Sorry Harriet Tubman, features the 2 Dope Queens star talking about quarantining with her boyfriend, moderating on Michelle Obama’s book tour, and failing at being a social justice warrior. The special premieres Thursday.
Also this week, The Tonight Show is getting a spin-off on Peacock that is just for the younger ones. Produced by and featuring a cameo from Jimmy Fallon, The Kids Tonight Show features four kids hosting a version of Fallon’s Tonight Show, featuring similar games, guests, a monologue, and more. The show also premieres Thursday, with two episodes premiering each week.
Plus, Kate Beckinsale stars in a new dark comedy. Guilty Party, which was produced by Funny or Die, follows “Beth Burgess (Kate Beckinsale), a discredited journalist desperate to salvage her career by latching on to the story of a young mother, Toni Plimpton (Jules Latimer), who has been sentenced to life in prison for maiming and murdering her husband, crimes she claims she did not commit. In trying to uncover the truth, Beth finds herself in over her head as she contends with Colorado gun-smugglers, clickbait culture, the doldrums of marriage and her own tarnished past.”
