Host of "The Amber Ruffin Show;" Comedian & Writer for "Late Night with Seth Meyers"

Amber Ruffin stars in and executive produces "The Amber Ruffin Show" on Peacock, which premiered on September 25, 2020.

She has been a part of LNSM since its inception in 2014 and is the first African American woman ever to write for a network late-night talk show. In January 2021, she co-authored a book with her sister, titled "You'll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey: Crazy Stories about Racism," which was placed on the New York Times Best Seller List. She has been nominated for a Writers Guild of America award in the category "Comedy/Variety (Including Talk) Series" in 2017 and in "Comedy/Variety Sketch Series" in 2021.
