During a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Bret and Jemaine teased us with one of the songs we’ll be hearing when we tune in for their new HBO special on 10/6/18. Father & Son features an occasionally very honest dialogue between a dad and his kid.
While Hot Ones host Sean Evans wasn’t able to persuade Stephen to leave the Ed Sullivan Theater, he did manage to get him to participate in an abbreviated version of his interview show, and put the normally stoic Colbert on the ropes with Da Bomb and Blair’s Mega Death Sauce.
“188º? Get out of there! It’s gonna blow!” Stephen Colbert dropped by the Butterball offices to help out home chefs as they attempt to properly cook their Thanksgiving turkeys. If the late night thing doesn’t work out, he’s got career potential as a customer service rep.
“Before you say the name, I wouldn’t mind, bringing liquid, into my…” Still reeling from the possibility that Trump could be America’s next President, The Late Show turned to the only two people that could make sense of things:
Ja Rule Jon Stewart and The Nation’s Stephen Colbert.
“Listen up buddy, do NOT text your roommate saying you’re on the toilet. We know everybody does it, but we’ve all AGREED to pretend it’s not happening.” The Late Show asked Twitter users to complain about their roommates and had guest Lewis Black reprimand the offenders.
“The line between good and evil runs through each one of us.” Mandy Patinkin visited The Late Show to share his realizations in his time playing Homeland‘s Saul Berenson: Conflict and fear-mongering never worked out for anyone but those who profit from it.
…also known as cats. The Acro-Cats dropped by The Late Show to perform, but the stars proved that you don’t train cats. They train you to be happy when they give a crap. Unless of course that was the point of the performance all along, in which case that was pure genius.
“Do you believe in parallel universes? No. And somewhere, I just said yes.” After pondering some imponderables with Tom Hanks, Stephen Colbert lies out under the real fake night sky to consider more of life’s many unanswered (and better left unasked) questions.
