Nightcap is an edgy comedy that takes the viewer behind-the-scenes and into the fast paced and high stakes world of a fictitious late night talk show. Each episode will bring you into the heart of the hectic 22 minutes prior to the live airing, which are fraught with insanity, urgency, absurdity, celebrity antics and laughter.

Ali Wentworth can do no wrong. She's hilarious, and the supporting actors are funny and charming, too. It's a surprising treat to see the famous "guests" do what seems like a bit of improv.

I love it!

I have always liked Ali Wentworth since I saw her on The View years ago. Her show is reminiscent of 30 Rock, quick paced and so funny! Thank you Ali!!

Fun show with cast of quirky characters

Fun show with cast of quirky characters. I love how they get celebs to come on the show and then allow themselves to be skewered. I mean Gwyneth Paltrow as a kleptomaniac who also wants to steam her vag*na. Awesome.

So funny but I didn't want to buy all episodes. Hopefully will come out on Nexflix or Amazon Prime in next few years.

My Favorite New Show of the Season
Verified purchase
This show is exceptional. The premise is simple and the characters work really well off of one another and Ali Wentworth is the comic glue binding it all. Penny is also a real show stealer... and here's hoping we see more of HR in the future as well!
