On January 25th, 2018, Wilmington’s Late Night Talk Show celebrated the end of it run with some amazing guests. You can whole the whole episode above or watch the selected clips posted below. While this was the final show taped it won’t be the final one posted online. Keep an eye out for some retro Late Fear episodes coming soon!
Thank you so much to all of the wonderful guests we’ve had on the show. You’re all the reason that I created it. It’s given me a lot of satisfaction to present your comedy, poetry, music or to just sit across from you at the desk and share your special project.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the show. Your viewership, in person and online, has been greatly appreciated. The good news is that with the live shows coming to an end you are about to receive a ridiculous amount of online content with full episodes and clips.
Thank you to Timmy Sherrill and Cole Craven for giving me this opportunity to do something unique when we created the show at Dead Crow. Thank you to Zach Hanner for opening doors to TheatreNOW for me and just generally having my back.
This show would not have been possible without all of the amazing comics who contributed sketches, jokes, and original improv games. My “Not-Rowdy-For-Midnight Players” of Lydia Manning, Drew Harrison, Cordero Wilson, Jordan Bench, Troy Coleman, Louis Bishop, Timmy Booth, Matt White, Colton DeMonte, Tyler Wood and Harper Turek. I’m certain I’ll work with each of you again and that excites me. We benefited from having two awesome one-man house bands. Thank you to David DiMuro for developing the show with me and to D&D Sluggers for making this last year so much fun.
Andrew Bunting is the best videographer in Wilmington. I love working with him. Please hire him because this blog post is how he’s finding out he’s been laid off.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a better partner or friend than Jonathan Schwartz. So don’t. Just find Jonathan Schwartz and make him your friend and partner. You won’t be sorry.
Thank you all. I’m Wills Maxwell and this is what I wanted to do when I grew up.
Tonight I’m going to celebrate 3 years of the greatest honor of my life. I love hosting this show and tonight is going to be amazing. Late Fear is Wilmington’s Late Night Talk Show and we make sure each episode has incredible guests.
Tonight we’ll have local poets The 5th Horseman and Israel! They’ll join me at the desk to talk about their upcoming Black nerd podcast. Ryan Higgins is coming in from Raleigh to with some stellar stand-up. Returning to the show is Volume! This band is awesome and you can catch their last performance here.
This show is free! I’ll be joined by co-host Jonathan Schwartz and house band D&D Sluggers!
