‘The Nite Show’ Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary This Weekend
A very Happy Anniversary to our buddy, Danny Cashman!
The state of Maine only has one late-night talk show and it just so happens to be right here in Bangor. It is a very impressive feat to keep a local show on the air for so many years, especially when you are up against the juggernaut that is called "Saturday Night Live," but The Nite Show with Danny Cashman has prevailed, and they will celebrate that coming up this weekend.
The Nite Show with Danny Cashman's 25th Anniversary Special airs this Saturday night on WABI-TV5. from 7-8 pm. You can expect lots of highlight clips and a pretty cool lineup of guests to celebrate.
Rachel Nichols has been in some pretty big motion pictures and TV shows, like G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, Star Trek, Alias, and Criminal Minds. In this episode of The Nite Show, she plays prankster to her own parents.
Dustin Pueschel is a 13-year-old stand-up comic from the Boston area. Dustin is the youngest comic to take to The Nite Show stage in the show's 25-year history, and he is making his television debut during the special.
King Kyote is fresh off his appearance on NBC's American Song Contest. The York County native performs for the home county crowd as The Nite Show takes the show on the road to the Sanford Performing Arts Center for the 25th-anniversary show.
Plus, some surprises, including a rumored special appearance from late-night host James Corden
In 1997, "The Nite Show" became Bangor’s first late-night television talk show. Airing on Bangor’s then WB affiliate, The Nite Show gained an impressive following by featuring interesting local guests, talented musicians and performers, and a unique blend of comedy that attracted viewers of all ages.
After going off the air in 1999, "The Nite Show" returned to Bangor’s UPN affiliate in 2001 for another year. The Nite Show signed off in 2002, but was rebooted on Channel 5, back on October 1, 2015.
Happy Anniversary, Dan. Here's to 25 more!!
