New host Seth Meyers lands at ‘Late Night’ mostly smoothly, joined by Vice President Joe Biden
NEW YORK (AP) - The monologue jokes were mostly thin and the host seemed stiff delivering them.
But jokes about the Winter Olympics that already felt irrelevant, and a few opening-night butterflies for the guy voicing them, could be excused. Soon enough, Seth Meyers seemed to gain control of his inaugural edition of “Late Night.”
Part of his subsequent comfort level had to be explained by his savvy choice of guests. Amy Poehler, his longtime pal and former “Weekend Update” deskmate on “Saturday Night Live” was the first guest of NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
His other guest: Vice President Joe Biden, who’s a talk show all by himself.
When Biden arrived to join Poehler, it made for a cozy trio. After all, Biden and Poehler have a history of their own, reaching back to his cameo appearance last season on her NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.”
