‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ Adapts ‘The New Yorker’ Cartoons For The Stage [Video]
We all love The New Yorker‘s sometimes funny, often obtuse, impossibly refined cartoons, don’t we? But it has always seemed that they were missing something: The human touch.
The staff at Late Night with Seth Meyers looked to add that missing element in a bit this week that looked to break the magazine’s famous cartoons out of their one-panel shells and make them full-on stage productions featuring the Late Night Players. Check out a video of the piece, which includes commentary from the man who picks the cartoons himself, New Yorker editor David Remnick.
Is there anything more timeless than a Waldo joke? Almost certainly, but these were still pretty fun.
