As we’ve still got months to go before the premiere of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Colbert has thankfully gotten restless enough, like one Chris Gethard, to do something like step in to guest host a public access show Only in Monroe in Monroe, Michigan.
So, Colbert gave us either what is a great, hysterical preview of what The Late Show would be like without broadcast network production value and a live audience or a wonderful imagining of what a show that’s somewhere between Pawnee Today, Between Two Ferns, and The Colbert Report hosted by Stephen Colbert would be like.
Maybe call it “Between Two Pieces of Michigan Wicker with Stephen Colbert”?
In either case, it’s great and it’s amazing that guest Eminem seems befuddled as he apparently looks like he’s trying to figure out if Colbert is still doing a bit.
Let’s hope he makes good on saying that he’s coming back to Only in Monroe in August.
