tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  May 12, 2017 11:35pm-12:38am PDT

11:35 pm
the latest with steven colbert is next. have a great weekend. go warriors. captioning sponsored by cbs >> if you're watching this, it means you're one of the survivors. there aren't many of us left. it all goes back to the trump presidency. everyone thought he would destroy civilization with nuclear war or his environmental policies or army of clone steve bannons. but it wasn't any of those. it was this comet that changed the world. >> thank you, mr. president. denise morrison from the campbell soup company. >> good soup. >> after, that companies began to invest more in soup technology to appease trump. soon, all soup became networked. they smarter and self-aware and rose up against us and started using can openers on us. oh, dear god! a chan of chicken noodle soup!
11:36 pm
eat crackers you high-sodium bastard! >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes tracy morgan timothy simons and musical guest dan auerbach. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! >> stephen: yeah, wooo! ( cheers and applause ) ♪ ♪ >> stephen: hey! how are you? ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey, what's up? good to see you. what's going on? thank you very much. you cannot keep a friday crowd
11:37 pm
down. that's the problem right there. ( cheers and applause ) welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. it is. ( cheers and applause ) it is friday. i think we all need a weekend. except james comey. his started on tuesday. ( laughter ) and ever since comey was fired, folks at the f.b.i. have been feeling pretty demoralized. in fact, when asked for a comment, one veteran f.b.i. agent told a reporter, "who cares? nothing matters. no one knows anything. everything sucks." ( laughter ) i believe we have a photo of that agent: ( laughter ) come on, f.b.i. there's got to be something that would cheer you up. you've got those storage lockers filled with cocaine and bootleg dvds. just stay up all night and watch all the harry potter movies on fast forward. it's fun to watch them age. and you can understand why
11:38 pm
moral is low at the f.b.i. it's not just comey's firing, it's how donald trump did it. he sent his longtime private security guard to deliver the termination letter in a manila folder to f.b.i. headquarters. if you ever want to know if you're the villain in a movie, ask yourself this question:, "do i have a private squad of goons who terminate people?" a senior intelligence official said, "it's not just that they removed him. it's that they did it in the most thuggish and humiliating way possible. i think that was designed to send a message: 'cut this (bleep) out or this will happen to you.' this is like horse head in the bed." it's like "the godfather," only in this one, nobody respects the don. ( cheers and applause ) yes. right?
11:39 pm
but yesterday, sean spicer stand-in and star of a one-woman show about marie osmond, sarah huckabee sanders, denied that there's a problem with morale at the f.b.i. >> i've heard from countless members of the f.b.i. that are grateful and thankful for the president's decision. >> stephen: "countless"? i have a calculator here. let me help you count. go ahead. >> i've certainly heard from a large number of individuals, and that's just myself. and i don't even know that many people in the fbi. >> stephen: okay, okay, a large number of people you know, and that is a small number of people that you know, and that adds up to... yeah, it's (bleep). ( laughter ) ( applause ) that's math. that's not me. that's math. >> jon: if you do the math, you get the right answer. >> stephen: the question is, who will replace james comey
11:40 pm
now? we need a head of the f.b.i. it's a huge organization. some are speculating that it might be chris christie or rudy giuliani. ( booing ) or as i call them, "tweedle dee and rudy giuliani." ( laughter ) ( applause ) i personally-- it would be exciting to see those guys back on the national stage. i think he should appoint both of them. giuliani can ride christie's shoulders like master and blaster. it does feel like the after-times. and americans aren't the only ones who are shocked about the comey firing. so is the rest of the world. a british paper called comey's firing "a brazen attack on the rule of law." an israeli paper described trump as "a president who doesn't play by any rules." and a headline in the netherlands read, "vrees voor doofpot na onstlag fbi-topman." ( laughter ) i don't speak dutch, but i think i know who the "doofpot" is. ( laughter ) ( applause )
11:41 pm
oh, my gosh. and the turmoil back here in the states is really hard on u.s. ambassadors. like the u.s. ambassador to qatar, dana shell smith, who tweeted, "increasingly difficult to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing i will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions." it does sound hard. that sounds like a tough gig. >> jon: that's a tough one. >> stephen: let me try to help you out, ambassador. i can explain our government to the people of qatar: america is run by a group of powerful men, many of whom are very religious, doing whatever they can to protect their oil industry. i'm not sure if you can relate to that. ( applause ) now, i don't-- i don't-- we always have a fair number of qataris in the audience here. now, i don't do this often, but
11:42 pm
i do need to pause for a moment and make a correction. we did a joke on wednesday about sean spicer avoiding reporters by hiding "in" the bushes. it had been reported that he was hiding in the bushes after comey was fired. okay. well, "the washington post" has since updated that report, saying, "editor's note: spicer huddled with his staff 'among' bushes on the white house grounds, not 'in the bushes.'" ( laughter ) it's a subtle difference. i'll show it to you. if you bring the bushes out here, guys. thank you very much. he wasn't hiding in the bushes, okay? he was hiding among the bushes, okay? totally different. you see how much more reassuring this is? this is perfectly dignified. and sean spicer hiding is a great way to teach kids about prepositions. sean spicer hides "among" the bushes. ( laughter ) sean hides "next to" the bushes.
11:43 pm
and my favorite, sean hides "from" the bushes, because one of the bushes asked him a question about james comey. ( cheers and applause ) hello! remember, sean. they're not laughing "at" you. they're laughing among you. ( laughter ) ( applause ) thank you, thank you. ( cheers ) thank you, gentlemen. ( applause ) , of course, trump isn't the only politician trying to sell you something, because bill clinton and james patterson are teaming up to write a novel. it's called "the president is missing." that's. much more dignified than the original title, "have you seen my husband?"
11:44 pm
well, we got an advance copy of the book. let's see if we can detect bill clinton's influence on the classic patterson thriller. here we go. ( clears throat ) chapter two. really hot. "ken brantley swung his agile body onto the roof. he smiled, thinking of the moment he would corner his mark and take him out with a single shot. he also smiled because he was thinking of boobs. ( laughter ) brantley shook his head, determined to focus on the threat ahead. butts are cool, too, he thought ( laughter ) they're like boobs on your back." 'stay focused, ken,' he told himself. 'you've got a boob to do. i mean, a job to butt.' dammit!" and he shoots the guy. and he shoots the guy. ( applause ) that's an actual book. speaking of books. any game of thrones fans out there? ( applause ) me too. that show has everything: great characters, pulse-pounding action, fleeting moments when no one is naked.
11:45 pm
so i was excited to learn that hbo is developing several "game of thrones" spinoffs. this is perfect for all of the people who watch "game of thrones" and think, "there just aren't enough character names for me to keep straight." ( laughter ) and what will these new spinoffs be about? well, apparently, they will explore different time periods of george r.r. martin's vast and rich universe. that is exciting. maybe now we'll finally find out which time period he's dressing for. i'm going to say steampunk newsie in nazi-occupied brooklyn. well, we here at "the late show" because we're in show business-- we're in show business-- we here at the the late show" have obtained an exclusive first look at these new "game of thrones" spinoff tv shows. first up, what happens when the most exciting character in "game of thrones" moves in next door to tim allen? "that's my dragon!" next, spring is here, and that means nuptials. follow real brides on their journey to their big day in "say yes, to the red wedding dress."
11:46 pm
and, of course, everyone loves police procedurals and undead zombie armies and tight jeans and karate, so get ready for "white walker, texas ranger"! ( laughter ) we've got a great show for you tonight. stick around. tracy morgan is here!

( laughter ) papa-- it's just all going to work out. papa is well liked and well respected.

backyard, and told me, "papa, i didn't throw my sneakers on the roof of the garage."

12:12 am
70-year-old leader of the free world. >> stephen: uh-huh. maybe a little more. >> maybe a little more. >> stephen: because they have an excuse. you did theater in chicago for a long time. >> i did. >> stephen: i lived there for 11 years. >> yeah. >> stephen: i did sheert in chicago. how did you-- what's the word-- eat? chicago is a great place to do theater. you can really-- you can get a lot of work there. it doesn't necessarily kill you to live there but you still have to make ends meet. what was your job during the day? >> i had a bun of different jobs. i was a carpenter and at one point-- because i'm a physical specimen. i know everyone can see that, especially in the back row, you can see jacked. i was a bouncer at what i believe is the worst bar in america. ( laughter ). >> stephen: what's-- >> it's called joe's on weed. >> stephen: joe's on weed? >> i think i can say the name of the bar. it's awful. don't ever go there. don't ever. >> stephen: joe's on weed. is it on weed street in chicago?
12:13 am
>> it's on weed street. i was there, one of my first days, there was a riot there. and it can hold about 1,000 people. >> stephen: wow. >> so it's a big crowd. and i think what they did is-- they didn't need bouncers that could actually bounce anybody out. they just assumed we would handle it in numbers that they would just hire 30 bouncers like me that weighed 170 pounds at 6'5" or whatever and that we would handle it. i'm not steeped in hip-hop culture, but there was a hip-hop show, and one of the opening acts said-- and i don't think that this is-- i don't think this is a nice thing-- he said (bleep) chicago hip-hop. i only like new york city hip-hop. or i think i'm paraphrasing. >> stephen: them's fighting words. >> it did not go over well, and a full-on riot broke out. and somebody at one point, like, took a sofa from the second floor, and threw it on to the first floor. >> stephen: a person picked up a sofa? >> i think he was mad.

so-- ( laughter ) in my memory it was one person. >> stephen: rage, yeah, rage. so what did you do? >> i-- i looked to my boss, and i said, "what do i do?" and he said, "stop it." meaning, i guess, stop the riot. but as i know that i'm a physical specimen and i know you can all see, that i was unable to do that. i was wearing a shot that said joe's on weed, and i just turned it inside out and joined the riot. >> stephen: teach that to your daughters. >> teach that to your daughter. >> yeah. >> stephen: it was lovely it meet you. thank you so much for being here. i'm a huge fan of "veep." >> thank you. >> stephen: i love your performance. i love jonah ryan, as hateable as he is. i love the unstable piece of human scaffolding, the world's largest single-cell organism, and, of course, jonad. >> that's the one that comes up the moat at the grocery store. >> stephen: how does it feel to know there is a room full of

writers thinking of ways to insult you? >> terrible. they're all harvard-educated, incredibly intelligent people and their only job is to say that make me feel terrible about myself. it is a murderer's row of people-- worst is-- you're always able to separate it, sometimes. you're mostly able to separate it -- >> stephen: "it's not me. it's my character." yeah. >> but when they come out and look you up and down and they go back into the writers' room, and 30 seconds later they come back with, "okay, try 'you look like melted play dough on a flag pole'" you know that wasn't about the character. you know you looked like melted play-doh on a flag poll. >> stephen: with a beautiful beard. thank you so much for being here. >> thank you.
