In a world that combines jokes, topical subject matter, daily deadlines, and even sketch comedy—all after hours—a writer really has to be on top of their game. Infusing comic relief into current events and trends, many of which can be delicate discussion points, requires writers to be on-their-toes and always five steps ahead. Panelists from The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Dennis Miller, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will share their experiences in this unique medium, covering the diverse skill set needed to write everything from opening monologues to desk pieces, and how a job in the late night world can be a lucrative role in one’s career.
