Amber Ruffin is coming back with more hilarious and insightful commentary on her critically-acclaimed late-night variety show. The Amber Ruffin Show will return with new episodes dropping every Friday beginning on Friday, February 25.  

The Amber Ruffin Show  showcases Amber’s smart and silly take on the week’s news. Her first two seasons won the hearts of fans and critics alike for her fresh perspectives and humorous slant on some of the most relevant social topics and news stories of the day. No matter what’s happening in the world, Amber responds to it with a charming mix of seriousness, nonsense, and of course, her signature bowties. 

Ruffin’s is a topical late-night show with just the good parts – the comedy. It gained Critics Choice, Primetime Emmy®, Television Critics Association, Writers Guild and GLAAD Media Award nominations in its first season, and Ruffin was recently nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Host in a Reality/Reality Competition, Game Show or Variety (Series or Special). With its Primetime Emmy nomination, The Amber Ruffin show became the first late-night show on streaming to receive a Variety writing nomination.

 
 “We are so excited to be back with all-new episodes of The Amber Ruffin Show!” Ruffin said in a statement, “Each show is a new reason to be grateful and have a margarita.”

Tarik Davis serves as the announcer for the series.
