The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Outstanding Variety Talk Series

 

 

“…essential viewing…”

– Vanity Fair

“…the standard for the rest of late night.”

– MIC

“… the monologue has provided a moment of catharsis for Colbert and his audience.”

– Wall Street Journal

“The openness and ownership that he has with seemingly culturally taboo subjects, such as grief, allows his guests permission to be in contact and reveal those aspects of their own selves and experiences. In turn, the audience gets to have a genuine, deep, and connected experience. So the show feels like an act of service to people. I think Stephen would have made a great priest.”

– Andrew Garfield
