Stephen Colbert poses with the award for Outstanding Variety Series for "The Colbert Report" at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. Jon Stewart's 16-year-long run as host of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," has helped launch comedy careers. Colbert left the show to launch his own companion show, which he hosted for a decade. Then, in late 2014, he exited Comedy Central for CBS, where in September he will step into the late-night time “Late Show” slot long occupied by David Letterman.
CBS released three new promos for Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show,” which premieres Sept. 8. And one of the three involves Mitt Romney and pancakes.
“Wow, you do a great Mitt Romney,” Colbert says in the clip.
“I am Mitt Romney,” Romney replies.
“That’s it, stay in character,” Colbert quips.
In the other promos, Colbert shows off his magic skills and his “Charlie Rose trapper keeper.”
We can’t wait. The only downside? No “Colbeard” in sight. It was fun while it lasted.
