    No time for jokes in New York City. The massive Hurricane Sandy caused late-night comedy shows to cancel their performances on Monday night, and even Jimmy Kimmel canceled his much-touted Barclays’ Center performance. David Letterman made the best use of the phrase “The show must go on,”” taping his show but without the live studio audience.

Journey’’s Barclay’s Center performance, scheduled for Tuesday, was canceled, and the benefit concert Freedom to Love Now! was postponed to spring 2013.
