Tonight Show midnight stand up with Seth Herzog and special guests

11:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 17 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | free | 21 and up

If you weren't already planning to catch iconic Flat Duo Jets guitarist Dex Romweber play Will's Pub tonight, Tuesday, June 17, you might want to start making the necessary adjustments if you're a fan of The Tonight Show. We were tipped off this weekend that the staff and writers would be doing a secret comedy show in town while filming at Universal, and today we have confirmation that it not only will happen, but it's going down tonight.

The music starts at 8 p.m. ($12), with three bands to perform - Dex Romweber Duo, the Woolly Bushmen and the Wildtones - before Jimmy Fallon's warm-up comedian Seth Herzog takes the stage around midnight (free entry at that point) to host a night of stand-up featuring Tonight Show staff. Herzog is a seasoned New York stand-up comedian whose weekly comedy show "Sweet" is one of New York's longest-running. You've likely seen him most in bits on The Tonight Show or opening up the show when filling in for Fallon, but he's also appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Chappelle's Show. For longtime fans of Herzog's comedy, the jury is still out on whether he will do his infamous Wonder Woman dance.
