Stephen Colbert Reveals LOL Themes, Guests for Live Convention Shows

CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert has revealed the themes for its upcoming, live political convention-timed shows, and they’re each an amusing mouthful.

For the live shows airing at 11:35 pm ET the week of July 18 (during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland), Colbert will survey “The 2016 Trumpublican Donational Conventrump Starring Donald Trump as the Republican Party* (*May Contain Traces of Republican).”

Then, during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Late Show will take stock of “The 2016 Democratic National Convincing a Technically Historic Event: Death. Taxes. Hillary.”

The guests joining Colbert for the RNC reviews include comedians Keegan-Michael Key, Lewis Black and Billy Eichner, Scandal POTUS Tony Goldwyn and Senator Elizabeth Warren.

During the week of July 25, to help rehash the events of the DNC, Late Show welcomes Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver, former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner, onetime Newsroom anchor Jeff Daniels and presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Not a shock, Daily Show and Colbert Report both have done (or in the former’s case are doing) this kind of stuff already, makes sense for him to carry it over to his current show.

    I can’t be the only one who loves this show over the fluff on Fallon’s show…..

      you´re not alone =) !

      You are absolutely not alone. Fallon’s a$$ kissing and game playing can get on my nerves. I try to watch when there is a guest I’m interested in, and it’s painful. Colbert is a better interviewer and has a more diverse line of guests (as in authors, politicians, scientists, etc..) Plus, he’s still funny even though he’s not the “Colbert Report” character anymore.

      • Whatever says:

        If we get a dime for every time Fallon talks about the time the guest and him met/got together, we would all be as rich as him. It’s ok to talk about more than famous people being friends with each other. It’s a relief that Colbert continue to be different.

    • Angela says:

      I haven’t seen enough of Fallon’s show to comment on it, but yeah, Colbert’s show has been very entertaining for me so far :). I like that he’s bringing in the political humor, and can’t wait for his coverage of the conventions.
      (Also, yay, John Oliver as a guest again!)

    I think he should rename himself “Peace” instead of Pence, and choose a new middle name, such as Sojourner. So he could have a name “Michael Sojourner Peace,” he could undoubtedly pick up a few of Bernie Sanders’ voters.

    Anthony Weiner? Seriously?
