We’re all fatigued enough to the point that reality and the daily news cycle have begun blending together, so allow Stephen Colbert to sharpen that point. On a pike, specifically, as Colbert throws presidential advisor Stephen Miller onto Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and more to test his “I’m prepared to go on any show” claim.
Late Show With Stephen Colbert
We’re still waiting on more formal details of Jon Stewart’s new HBO project, but if the former Daily Show host wants to return to The Late Show night after night, who are we to judge? Watch Stewart debut his new fashion (and a few executive orders) with his latest late-night return.
If ever conservative madmen escaped into the real world, Stephen Colbert would be judge. The Late Show host’s not-quite Colbert Report alter-ego returned to have the final “Werd” on Barack Obama’s presidency, the full clip of which you can watch right now.
Whether or not you believe that Trump’s Hamilton controversy with VP-Elect Mike Pence was intended to draw attention from the Trump University settlement, it certainly made for one of the more unusual Presidential feuds in history, Hamilton included. So much so, that Stephen Colbert sought to enter the conflict into history with its own Hamilton-esque hip-hop musical.
Little in America went the way people expected in Election 2016, and anyone watching Stephen Colbert’s live 2016 Showtime special can certainly attest to that. The mood was one of shock, far more than laughter, but leave it to Colbert to still get audiences on their feet with a rousing, sober (barely) assessment of the world going forward.
Stephen Colbert has plenty of work left in this election, including a live Showtime special full of all the swears and nudity you like, but you didn’t think Jon Stewart was going to sit out, did you? Watch the former Daily Show and Colbert Report hosts reunite for a voting musical extravaganza, with a touch of Hamilton to boot.
We’re all going to let the expeletives fly on Election Night 2016, regardless of the outcome, and no one is more excited than Stephen Colbert. After years of keeping it cable and broadcast-appropriate, the Late Show host is exercising all the profanity he can muster in new TV spots for the live Showtime election special.
If there’s a silver lining to the 2016 election, it might be that late-night hosts are at the top of their game. If there’s two, our tolerance for booze has gone way, way up. Thankfully Stephen Colbert will help us combine both, live on November 8, as Showtime released the first uncensored tease for Colbert’s live election night special.
The fervor for Netflix’s Stranger Things has more or less passed (now that we have a second season to look forward to, anyway), but with the young stars still making press rounds, Stephen Colbert finally got his chance for a late-night parody. Look’s like Eleven’s back to crushing Coke cans in a new Colbert cold open, but with a musical twist.
Former Daily Show correspondent Larry Wilmore made adamantly clear that his Nightly Show would never serve the same function as Stephen Colbert’s Colbert Report, but nonetheless had difficulty filling the 11:30 P.M. slot. Now, with The Nightly Show having run its course, Wilmore dropped by Colbert’s Late Show to take over the timeslot once more.
