The Women Writers of “Late Night” Moderated by Seth Meyers

In its five years on the air, Late Night with Seth Meyers has proven not to be just a showcase for its talented host, but also for the show’s brilliant female writing staff. The women of Late Night have given the show a distinct sensibility. Two of the show’s writers, Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel, are frequently seen in the much admired segment “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell.” Amber, the first African-American female to write for a network late night talk show, also delivers her own unique spin on current events in the popular segment “Amber Says What?” and Jenny has made numerous appearances discussing Hispanic and LGBTQ+ issues. To date, the Late Night with Seth Meyers writing staff has garnered two Emmy nominations and three nominations from the Writers Guild of America.
