Climate change, which has played its part in worsening this summer’s deadly heat waves, hurricanes, forest fires, and floods, is generally not an issue to laugh at.
But, for a night, seven popular late-night comedy shows hope that they can make that difference.
The goal of this unprecedented coordinated effort is to reach a broad public and to convey the gravity of the challenge that humanity is faced.
The group has been co-sponsored by longtime producer Steve Bodow, whose previous TV credits also include executive producer/showrunner of “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj,” executive producer/co-showrunner of “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” executive producer/editor/collaborator of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” and executive producer/co-producer of “The Opposition with Jordan Klepper.”
Why did Trevor Noah decide to organize those efforts?
