The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is an American late-night show aired by CBS from the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway in New York City at 23:35 every weekday night. It is moderated by Stephen Colbert, who also acts as executive producer.
Genre: Reality competition
Stephen Colbert was introduced to this post on April 10, 2014, succeeding David Letterman after announcing his retirement from Late Night after more than 30 years.
The format of the program is broadly similar to a typical late-night program with a stand-up section at the beginning of the show, a number of one-man actors on current topics and up to three interview guests or musical contributions. Compared to similar broadcasts on American television, the focus at the Late Show with Steven Colbert is more on political guests. So in the first weeks u. a. Presidential candidates Jeb Bush and Bernie Sanders and Vice President Joe Biden.
Colbert previously hosted the Colbert Report for ten years, a satirical comedy show on Comedy Central. Here, however, he always appeared as a fictional character "Stephen Colbert" (with quotation marks) and persiflated with this figure the strongly right-wing populist American television commentators such as Bill O'Reilly or Rush Limbaugh. For the Late Show, however, Colbert no longer uses this fictional character, but moderated as himself.
The musical director and bandleader of the late show is Jon Batiste. He takes on the role of the classic sidekick only in a very attenuated form. The home band is Jon Batiste & Stay Human, co-founded by Jon Batiste. All members have studied together at the Juilliard School.
