Shows that will participate include “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee”, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” by ABC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” by NBC, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” by Comedy Central, “The Late Late Show with James Corden”, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” by CBS and “The Tonight NBC Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Although the subject is serious, there will be some jokes.
“I don’t want to die,” Kimmel said, explaining why he’s participating.
“In the interest of recycling, please use what Jimmy Kimmel said,” Fallon joked.
“I am delighted to be a part of ‘Climate Night’,” said Bee. “But maybe we should move on a few days? Just because, you know, it’s urgent?”
“I’m proud to devote an entire night of my show to the climate, so I can say I wasn’t part of the problem, I was 1 / 365th of the solution,” Colbert said.
“Climate Night” takes place during Climate Week NYC, a week-long summit bringing together world leaders and climate activists to promote concrete solutions to tackle the climate crisis.
“Climate Night” was created by former “Daily Show” and “Patriot Act” showrunner Steve Bodow.
“Climate change has moved very quickly from ‘probably the future’ to ‘actually now’ which means we all need to talk about it and think about it a lot more,” Bodow said. “Late night hosts reflect our national conversation even more than Russian Twitter bots define – so this incredible bunch of shows coming together make a statement on the scale and urgency of the hottest issue of the world.”
