Stephen Colbert couldn’t help but share his admiration for “Bridgerton” but admitted that the show can be intimidating because of its steamy scenes featuring attractive actors. He even made a hilarious reference to the “sexy man butt” displayed on the show, which drew laughs from the audience.

But the surprises didn’t end there. The audience was in for a real treat as David Letterman stepped onto the stage for a rare interview. The C Bear questionnaire awaited him, and the anticipation was palpable. It was truly an honor for them to have the legendary talk show host grace the stage of “The Late Show.”

Throughout the episode, Stephen Colbert‘s monologue delivered its signature mix of wit, charm, and topical humor. He entertained viewers with his unique and quirky take on current events. Colbert’s ability to seamlessly blend comedy and storytelling was evident as he effortlessly transitioned from sharing satire to discussing serious news stories.

One such news story had everyone talking. In a zoning dispute over restaurant types allowed in a local mall, an Indiana judge ruled that tacos are Mexican-style sandwiches. Colbert had a field day with this ruling, playfully discussing how his grandfather would order tacos as “Hispanic crackers” with “green cream cheese” and “angry ketchup,” along with a serving of “thin grilled cheeses.” The audience roared with laughter at his vivid description.

In true late-night fashion, Colbert also shared some bizarre news stories. One such story involved a Florida man who was accused of stealing $30,000 worth of Pokémon cards. However, his plans were thwarted by a topless MMA coach. The absurdity of the situation left the audience in stitches, but unfortunately, this story also had to be cut short due to legal reasons.

On a more serious note, a groundbreaking gene editing breakthrough was discussed, with promising results in the potential cure for herpes. Experiments on mice showed a staggering 97% reduction in herpes virus infections, bringing hope for future treatments. Colbert couldn’t resist his cheeky humor, jokingly mentioning that it was now safe to have some summer fun.

But not everything was lighthearted. Studies have shown that attention spans are shrinking, highlighting the importance of maintaining focus in a fast-paced world. Colbert lightened the mood with a humorous image of a cat in a milk jug, showcasing his ability to capture both the gravity and levity of topics.

In a bizarre incident in Maine, a truck carrying a staggering 15 million bees crashed, causing panic and concern. Although most of the bees were contained, the thought of 7 million bees still buzzing around the neighborhood was enough to make anyone think twice about stepping outside.

Closing the show on a lighter note, Colbert shared exciting news about the upcoming Paris Olympics. Flavor Flav, of Public Enemy fame, has been announced as the official hype man for the US Women’s Water Polo team. This unexpected pairing brought both intrigue and amusement, leaving viewers excited to see what Flavor Flav would bring to the games.

As the episode came to a close, viewers were left with a sense of satisfaction and anticipation for future episodes of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” With its fantastic lineup of guests, clever monologues, and unique take on current events, it’s no wonder that this chat show continues to captivate audiences around the world.
