Hey everyone,

I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question, but I'm fairly new to this. I just wanted to know how people typically apply for jobs writing for late-night talk shows?

If it's through a manager, are there specific managers that work with these types of writers? And do you query the manager with talk show specific material (e.g. a submission package of late-night style jokes, etc.) or more traditional comedy scripts?

Thanks,

Matt

Check out this thread that mostly focuses on SNL but it is pretty much the same procedures with late night talk shows.
