Watch Late Night Writers Amber Ruffin And Jenny Hagel Assist Their Boss With Jokes Seth Can't Tell
Plus: find out what Meyers's Kryptonite is!
On occasion, Late Night host Seth Meyers is pitched monologue jokes that, due to their content, would not sound good coming out of a white man's face. That's why the show has introduced the recurring segment Jokes Seth Can't Tell, in which Meyers reads the setups, with the punchlines supplied by either black writer Amber Ruffin or lesbian writer Jenny Hagel. Meyers couldn't and shouldn't touch jokes about the Mall of America's black Santa or Supergirl's sister's gayness. But Ruffin and Hagel can and do, delightfully.
