the late show with stephen colbert

Stephen Colbert Filmed a 40-Minute Public-Access Show in a Random Small Town to Remind You That, Character or Not, He’s the Best

With a little over two months until his Late Show premiere, Stephen Colbert is getting antsy. And as everyone does when they are getting a little bored, Colbert went to Monroe, Michigan, to film a 40-minute public-access show and get two registered nurses day-drunk. The result is surprisingly thorough, and unsurprisingly super-funny, essentially playing out like an extra-long version of “Better Know a District.” Considering he’s putting this much work into just building buzz for his new show, we think it’s pretty safe to start getting very excited for September. He got freaking Eminem to show up!
