Wednesday Recap -- Anthony Bourdain, Colin Quinn, Paramore

Wednesday's all-new episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers offered a bountiful balance of jokes, politics, travel stories and rock 'n' roll. The guests included Colin Quinn, Anthony Bourdain, Paramore and a special appearance from Little Orphan Annie.

Seth's monologue poked fun at Drake, China's "Cleaning the Web" campaign and a Kansas man who had the word "murder" tattooed on his neck. You can see the entire monologue here.

Seth loves New York, a city full of surprises. Strangely enough, he bumped into classic comics character Little Orphan Annie on the street and invited her onto the show. Watch what happens here.

Chef, author and host of CNN's Parts Unknown Anthony Bourdain talked with Seth about some of his favorite locations including Tokyo and France, plus the pain of traveling and eating in Russia. Seth and his brother appeared on Anthony's earlier show The Layover and shared stories about appearing drunk on camera. Watch Anthony Bourdain's interview here.

More about Anthony Bourdain: A trained chef, Anthony Bourdain burst onto the food literature scene with his 2000 best-selling book, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly. A prolific writer and observer, Bourdain has hosted or appeared on dozens of food-focused TV shows, including No Reservations and Parts Unknown, for which he won a primetime Emmy award.

SNL alum Colin Quinn stopped by to talk about his new stage show, Unconstitutional. The former Weekend Update anchor remains a news junkie, and he shares his take on Americans' disdain for politics with Seth. Catch the interview here.

More on Colin: he's a stand-up comedian, actor and writer who was featured on SNL from 1995 to 2000. Although he and Seth never worked on the show simultaneously, Colin also hosted Weekend Update for three seasons. He would end every segment with his catchphrase, "That's my story and I'm sticking to it." Quinn has twice appeared on Broadway, once during his SNL tenure with An Irish Wake, and recently with Long Story Short.

Paramore rolled into the Late Night studio to deliver a delicious version of their hit, "Ain't It Fun." Paramore is a rock trio consisting of Hayley Williams (lead vocals), Jeremy Davis (bass) and Taylor York (guitar). They have released four studio albums, the most recent being their self-titled album in 2013, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart. See the performance here.
