( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey, how are you! hello! the when i move... what's up, john. hey, lois. lois, joan. good to see you! that was great last night, wasn't it? hey! ( cheers and applause ) thank you. very kind. please have a seat. back at you, brother. welcome one and all to "the late show." i am your host, stephen colbert. and i just want to ( cheers and applause ) that's quite pleasant. hello, you beautiful people. i have yet to get over how good it feels to be back in front of a live audience. it feels-- it feels--
11:38 pm
( cheers and applause ) you know, it's-- it's-- the relationship feels so fresh. it's like we've renewed our vows. ready for the honeymoon. you know who's looking to put the spark back in their relationship? the united states and its allies. joe biden is on the eighth and final day of his swing through europe. and he closed his trip out with a face-to-face, tete-a-tete, mono-a-monster with russian president and man who popularized the "vlad bod," vladimir putin. the 68- and 78-year-old leaders met in switzerland, neutral territory. it was an epic confrontation in the tradition of the "thrilla in manila," the "rumble in the jungle." it was the "boniva in geneva." ( laughter ) got there. got there. ( cheers and applause ). the two leaders squared off from
11:39 pm
the get-go. just look at this dramatic photo: aw, yeah! their guy fell asleep first! wooo! that photo-op started off with a shoving match between american and russian journalists. this is true. the chaos also got in the way of the cameras. check out this russian photographer hogging the real estate: >> can he move? because we can't get a shot of both of them. can you move? because we can't get a shot. ( laughter ) >> stephen: well, that is clearly an act of-- hey, can you move? can you-- i can't-- i can't do the-- laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) the russians are everywhere! expectations were not high for the meeting, but every american leader goes in with a set of objectives. biden went into the day hoping to promote predictability and stablity-- also the name of the
11:40 pm
most boring jane austen novel. ( laughter ) experts had expected a four- to five-hour summit, but in actuality, the total running time for the summit was three hours and 21 minutes-- shorter than expected, like vl ( laughter ) so, what did they-- really? putin fans here tonight? i did not realize. so, what did they accomplish with their mini-meeting? i dunno. i was drifting in and out all day. i think they're exchanging ambassadors, isn't that right? they're reviving the iranian nuclear deal, and something something arctic. basically, the only thing that was exciting about it is that it was not the most demoralizing, nauseating, international bootlicking anyone has ever seen. ( cheers and applause ) a slight difference. totally-- a slight difference.
11:41 pm
the "boniva in geneva" didn't have to clear a very high bar. it just had to be less embarrassing than the "stinky in helsinki." ( laughter ) after the summit, putin took some softball questions from the russian press, and then called on abc's rachel scott: >> reporter: the list of your political opponents who are dead, imprisoned, or jailed is long. alexei navalny's organization calls for free and fair elections and end to corruption, but russia has outlawed that organization, calling it extremist, and you have now prevented anyone who supports him to run for office. so my question is, mr. president, what are you so afraid of? ( audience reacts ) >> stephen: wow, wow, man. that-- that was great. she will be missed. ( laughter ) we also learned the two leaders exchanged gifts. among the presents biden gave to putin was "a pair of custom
11:42 pm
aviators." ( cheers and applause ) it's-- it's great. great for will international relations, but even better for me. now i can do two impressions with one prop. "c'mon, jack!" ( as putin ) "i will murder you." ( laughter ) thank you, thank you very much. ( cheers and applause ). ♪ ♪ ♪ could you hold off? could you hold off? then putin explained hills life philosophy. >> ( translated ): were you able to bring mutual understanding and trust with the president of the united states. in life there is no happiness. there is only the specter of happiness. >> stephen: you do not want this guy giving a toast at your wedding. ( as putin ) "congratulations to jeffrey and diane. may the specter of happiness haunt you.
11:43 pm
now please have some cake. it is made of vanilla and children's tears, for what is life but a difficult birth astride of a grave. the light gleams for an instant, then it is night once more. mazel tov!" ( cheers and applause ) then it was biden's turn, and he started his presser with a wee gaffe. >> i caught part of president tru-- uh, putin's press conference. >> stephen: oooh,ings hey! he mixed them up. though, i have to say, it was often hard to tell the difference. at the end, the president got a little testy with one reporter. >> reporter: wh are you so confident he'll change his behavior, mr. president? >> i'm not confident he'll change his behavior. what the hell, what do you do that all the time? when did i say i was confident? i said-- what i said was, let's get it straight.
11:44 pm
i said what will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and it diminishes their standing in the world. i'm not confident of anything. i'm just stating a fact. >> stephen: wow, that was some strong "grampa's had it with your lip" energy. "what's that? what's that? you watch your tone, mister. watch your tone, little mister. knock it off with the grab-ass and the horseplay. this isn't a dog-and-pony show. were you born in a barn? if you were, grab a pail and start milking the cows because they're coming home to roost, little boy blue. i fought in korea!" anyway-- ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: yeah, get it, get it! get it! ( cheers and applause ) i like that. the way you put that jacket on, classic.
11:45 pm
>> stephen: anyway, u.s., russia, nuclear weapons. i'm sure it's all going to be fine. in happier news from the grin bin, once again, it's the third day of our in-person show, and i'm still bubbling with vaxcitement. ( cheers and applause ) we've got all-- all-- all the latest in our new hopefully long-running segment, "open up and say ahhhhmerica". >> we're open! let's party naked. get in here! all right! >> woooo! >> yay! >> i'm gonna lick everything that moves! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: okay, as more states-- sam is cut, man! as more states fully reopen, experts are calling on businesses to stop unnecessary precautions that are designed just to make people feel better, also known as "hygiene theater." ah, yes, hygiene theater. shakespeare was, of course, was his classic plays:
11:46 pm
"julius cleanser," "clorox andronicus," "the purelling of the shrew," and "the merry wipes of windex." these relatively useless gestures are everywhere, from restaurants to sports venues, and the washington baseball fans are not happy. one nationals supporter was particularly frustrated at the hands-free condiment stations, saying, "sometimes the ketchup is barbecue. sometimes the mustard is ketchup. there's no more relish or onions. this is the biggest (bleep) of the ballpark this year. no, clearly, the biggest (bleep) this year and every year is that you can't wear the hats that the ice cream comes in. why make it a hat if it doesn't fit your head?? and maybe a baby. maybe you can jam it on a baby's head if the fontinel hasn't closed yet. oh, grow up! baby-- baby heads bounce! ( laughter )
11:47 pm
now, it's not just ballparks. one expert wondered why cleaning crews are still disinfecting new york city subway cars. yes, because before coronavirus, everyone's first thought when getting on a new york city subway car was, "boy, this looks way too clean. ( laughter ) and why is only one guy pleasuring himself?!" we've got a great show for you tonight.

( cheers and applause ) folks, check your calendars, this sunday is father day. of course last year-- yeah, give it up for the dads. why not. >> jon: yes, i like that? >> stephen: of course, last year, because of the pandemic, a lot of people had to skip father's day. so this year, you're going to want to make up for that by forgetting to buy your dad two gifts. and what dad doesn't love to get a father's day card? the thing is, all greeting cards had to start somewhere. and the people who write them don't always nail it on the first try, which is why tonight, we're taking a look at some early efforts in our ongoing segment, "first drafts"! >> no, stupid! >> stephen: as always, with

11:54 pm
>> stephen: in a little room, like a little library by ourselves with cables coming through the window and a satellite truck on the lawn. and you-- or one of the two boys-- >> it was the boys first and madelee. and when the kids left it was me. >> stephen: it was you, exactly. and you would be on a satellite, like on a head phone, working the camera. >> man, the people that work for you are so sweet. they, like, laminated instructions if are me. ( laughter ). >> stephen: sure. they pinned them to your sleeve like a child going out into the snow. >> they did. and i would get in there and and put on the headset, "okay, i'm ready," you know. >> stephen: look at the back of the camera, see the second toggle from the left. see the red toggle? don't ever touch that. >> and then you had to crawl over the sofa to get anything. >> stephen: you shot some footage right before we left that little studio down there. that is-- that's a little bookshelf. >> that was the spy cam. >> stephen: that's the monitor so we could see ourselves.
11:55 pm
>> lap top-- there were, like, five lap tops that did the whole thing. >> stephen: that's the camera that i would talk into. that's the prompter. that's the tangle-- >> oh! the wires! >> stephen: the wires on the floor. >> how many times did i say, "can i just clear the wires?" >> stephen: "you cannot touch any wires they would say to you." and then you get to your station right there. that's where you would sit. >> i would sit right there. >> stephen: that was five months. >> it was crazy. >> stephen: thank you so much for doing that. ( cheers and applause ). >> it was fun. >> stephen: here's a glass of wine for you and a cocktail for me. you don't have to drink it. you can be a party pooper. ( cheers and applause ). >> okay! the. >> stephen: darling, you know how this works, right? yes. >> yes. >> stephen: thank you ( laughter ) actions speak louder than words. yes, i have in my hand a father's day card, a greeting card that was successful, and then after i read this one, you will hand me the one that was
11:56 pm
the first draft that was not good enough to be sold. >> this part has not changed. >> stephen: premise established. >> we have done this, like, six times now. >> stephen: it's the first time we have done it in front of an audience. >> stephen: that's true. here's an inspiring one: "happy father's day. no one could ever fill your shoes!" it's nice. a little dark, though. why are my shoes empty? ( laughter ) here's the first draft: "happy father's day. no one could ever fill your shoes, because no one would be caught dead in those crocs." ( applause ) >> true. throw away the crocs. >> stephen: do you have any plans for father's day for me? >> i think you requested to sleep late. >> stephen: that is true. that is true. that is all i want is-- all i want is unconsciousness. ( laughter ) this one says: "i don't know how i lucked out with such a sensitive,
11:57 pm
emotionally available dad. but i am grateful every day that you are you." >> oh! that's true. you are that, though. >> stephen: thank you, thank you very much. > very sensitive? >> stephen: the first draft said: "i don't know how i lucked out with such a sensitive, emotionally available dad. but could you please cry less around my friends?" >> that's also true. >> stephen: that is. >> that's very true. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: frequently. especially our daughter will go, "are you going to cry?" >> yeah. >> stephen: i love a good cry. love a good cry. here's a nice one that says, "dad, you're a non-stop fun machine! happy father's day." but the first draft said: "dad, you're a non-stop fun machine! but we're both too old for these horsey rides. i'm going to slip a disc." ( laughter ) very nice. now, what about-- what about you got anything for it him? i can't say that because he might watch this. >> stephen: does your dad
11:58 pm
watch this? your mom watches. >> they watched monday night and both told me i did a good job. >> stephen: when you came out. >> very sweet. >> stephen: whisper. what are you going to get him? that's perfect. he's going to love that. can't tell you what it is, but peter magee, you're going to love it. this card says: "thank you for always giving me a hand to hold. happy father's day." that is truly sweet. >> our kids won't hold our hands anymore, hon. >> stephen: however, the first draft said: "thank you for always giving me a hand to hold. but, like, whose hands were those?" a little dark. it's a little dark. there was some conjecture in rehearsal as to whether i would cut that one, because it's a little dark. i'm glad i didn't. you have to have the salty with the sweet. here's a card that says: "d.a.d." and inside, the letters spell out "down to earth, ome devilishly handsome." that's nice. every dad would want to get
11:59 pm
that, want to get that. but the first draft read: "d.a.d., dad, a dad. damn, what else starts with "d"?" ( laughter ) ( applause ) any of the children going to be around? >> i think peter. >> stephen: okay, one of them will be around, okay. no pressure. no pressure, buldy. you have to have all the love of all three of you right at me. ( laughter ) here's a nice one: "now that covid's over, i can reunite with my favorite guy, my dad!" >> oh! >> stephen: see, look at that. they're doing their part, too, out in the audience. >> they really are. >> stephen: but the first draft said: "now that covid's over, i can reunite with my favorite guy, mom's new boyfriend, chris! he lets me borrow his jet ski!" ( cheers and applause ) >> that could happen. >> stephen: it could happen? >> i mean not for us. >> stephen: it could happen? >> not for us. >> stephen: all right. >> i don't want a boyfriend on the side. >> stephen: you don't? >> i'm too old for that.
12:00 am
>> stephen: where-- where do you have him?

early, it's early days. this one says: "dad's you're a star. thanks for shining your light. happy father's day." but the first draft said: "dad, you're a star. i couldn't exist without you but you're mostly gas and impossible to get close to." evie magee, everybody! we'll be right back with anderson cooper. ♪ ♪ ♪ people everywhere living with type 2 diabetes are waking up to what's possible with rybelsus®. ♪ you are my sunshine ♪ ♪ my only sunshine... ♪ rybelsus® works differently than any other diabetes pill to lower blood sugar in all 3 of these ways... increases insulin when you need it... decreases sugar... and slows food. the majority of people taking rybelsus® lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than 7. people taking rybelsus® lost up to 8 pounds.

( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: nice to see you. look at the people. >> crazy, fantastic. >> stephen: so, this is our third show back with a full audience here. >> yeah. >> stephen: and it's-- it's sort of striking how quickly things are starting to feel normal. >> yes. >> stephen: to me. >> yeah. >> stephen: was there a moment, or have you gotten there yet, where-- how about new york? you grew up in new york. is there a moment when you felt like, "oh, god, this is what new york feels like?" it's been ghostly for part of the year. >> it has been ghostly and i have been riding my bike throughout the city because i have been going to the office. >> stephen: and you could ride down broadway for part of it. >> i feel like new york is back, but way back. when i grew up in new york city, and i lived right by washington square park.
12:07 am
when i was a kid, washington square park was where you went to get mugged. and, like -- >> stephen: i'm sorry, i have an appointment. >> i grew up in new york in the 70s and early 80s, and all we talked about as kids was when we were going-- like, when we were going to get mugged, getting mugged, who stole my bus pass. >> stephen: what's the etiquette for being mugged. >> exactly. and i walked through washington square park the other day and a couple of weeks ago the northwest corner of the park had been taken over by folks who were very, you know, dedicated to using substances. >> stephen: there's like a nightly rave scene now. whatever that means these day. >> i don't know why anyone would want to go to a rave in washington square park. it sounds just, like, awful to me. and i guess the last one on saturday night people were stabbed. so that doesn't sound good.
12:08 am
the park has been, it's, like, back independent 70s. i feel like i'm back to the future. ( laughter ). >> stephen: so there's going to be-- there's going to be a punk scene. i'll see you at stereo 54. >> exactly, yes. >> stephen: did you go to studio-- >> i went to studio 54 twice. both times my mom brought me, which tells you a little bit about how i was raised. i was 11 years old which, again, doesn't seem like a good idea. >> stephen: "honey, mommy is going to go dance. you stay here with mick and bianca." >> actually, that's not a joke. first time i went it was for the premiere of "the wiz," because my mom was dating sidney lamet and i went with michael jackson and i didn't know who michael jackson was because i didn't listen to music as a kid. i was playing "dudgeons and dragons." and my only memory was seeing michael jackson dance with somebody. and i turned to the person next to me and said, "he's really good at that. he should pursue that."
12:09 am
>> stephen: the most believable part of that story is that an 11-year-old anderson cooper would use the phrase "he should pursue that." >> yeah, that's totally true. i was very concerned about -- >> stephen: he should broaden his horizons, mother. >> and the second time we went, grace jones performed. >> stephen: holy cow! >> yeah. and my memory-- i don't know if this actually happened. but at some point, with the microphone cable, she seemed to have made some sort of a, like, a noose, put it around the neck of some guy in the audience. and i remember her lifting him up. i don't will think that actually happened, but that's how it looked to me at 11. ( laughter ). >> stephen: okay, so, now... ( laughter ) this all sounds really fun to me, actually. now you're a dad yourself. >> it's a very relatable childhood, i think.
12:10 am
>> stephen: speaking of childhood and relating to it, you are now a dad of your own. >> yes. >> stephen: of young wyatt, right here. >> yes, yeah. ( applause ) >> stephen: turned one. >> yeah, he turned one april 27. he turned one years old. >> stephen: is he talking? >> he talks in a dialect of hindi or urdu, i'm not sure. it's a really interesting dialect. i'm trying to understand what it is. it doesn't make any sense at this point but he's very committed to it. >> stephen: look at those eyes. the eyes do not fall far from the dad there. >> i know, i know. so just for the first time, i was in israel last week, my first work trip for "60 minutes," and i was doing an interview, and i get this text from wyatt's other dad, benjamin, and he said, "he just walked." exclamation mark, exclamation mark. >> audience: oooh. >> you would think that would be my reaction. my reaction was fury... i was like, "a," i can't believe i missed this, that i'm could go
12:11 am
this interview in israel of all places. and, secondly, then i got really pissed at benjamin for-- i was like, in my household, when i grew up, you would lie about everything. ( laughter ) so he should have just lied, and she shouldn't have said he just walked. he should have lied and said he's not walking at all. so when i got home and he walked we would have been, "oh, my god, it's the first work." >> stephen: wow, wow. ( applause ). >> yeah. >> stephen: but the thing is-- >> and he walks -- >> stephen: missing your child's first walk-- >> right. >> stephen: proves you are a father. >> i know, exactly, yes. and he walks like a drunken sailor. and -- >> stephen: not well then. >> he walks like someone at the rave in washington square park. ( laughter ) which makes me a little worried about what he was doing in israel. >> stephen: don't give him a knife. sunday is father's day. this is your second. >> yeah.
12:12 am
>> stephen: how has father-- what? >> no, good ahead. >> stephen: did i get something wrong? are you fact checking me? >> no, it was funny, because your producer said-- i talked to her on the phone before i came here. and she said, "stephen may ask you about this weekend." i said, "great. what's this weekend?" and she was like, "it's father's day." and i was like oh... because my dad died when i was 10. >> stephen: as did mine. >> and for me, father's day was something i avoided-- i just-- just did not acknowledge it. and when all kids in school-- and i think for anybody out there who lost a parent early-- you know, holidays and especially father's day, when you don't have a dad, it's just... it's not even bittersweet. it's just like -- >> stephen: kind of inexplicable. >> yeah, it's inexplicable. and the pain was so great for my entire-- most of my life, i didn't know father's day was this date, and the interesting thing for me about having a son, a child, it has made me sort of connect with my dad and my mom's
12:13 am
past and my brother's past in a way that i never really anticipated. like, i feel like i am in communion with them in some strange way, and i remember things about my dad that i never remembered before because i'm experiencing them with wyatt as a dad. it's really interesting. >> stephen: that's very beautiful. >> yeah. >> stephen: that's very beautiful. i'm very happy for you. >> yeah, no, it's incredible. >> stephen: it's an unexpected gift of being a father ( applause ). >> it really is. and so my mom painted a lot, and she did a portrait of her and my father, which i really like. and i put it outside wyatt's room. and every morning when i walk by, he stops and he insists on going over and touching the portrait of my mom and my dad. which i find really... wonderful ( voice breaking ). >> stephen: that is very beautiful. ( applause ) i've always said-- i've always said-- i've always said to
12:14 am
people who are about to have kids, it can be hard, but it's always beautiful. >> yeah. >> stephen: even when you think how can i go on. i haven't slept for days. but it taps you on the shoulder and punch you in the face when you don't expect it. it punches you with the beautiful. it's not that it's not painful but it's human and connects you on a primal level to not only your father but all the fathers all the way back. >> every cliche comes true. it changes the way you think about the world. and i did not know my heart could grow new chambers and new ventricles-- i'm not sure what a ventricle is. >> stephen: it is in there. it de-grinchifies you. >> it what. >> stephen: it degrinchifies you. are you not familiar with "how the grinch stole christmas. do you have plans for the weekend? >> i'm going to go hang out with benjamin's other day-- i mean,
12:15 am
wyatt's other dad, benjamin. >> stephen: benjamin's dad can come, too, that would be cool. >> and we're going to hang out in connecticut and just-- just be dads. >> stephen: i have a bone to pick with you, though. >> uh-oh. >> stephen: you seem to be taking this dad thing very seriously. and that's great. it's wonderful and beautiful and everything you have said is great. >> wow, that really came from the heart. >> stephen: it really did, "it really did. you will see why in just a second. where is the dad bod, though. anderson, you're not really committed until i see a gut. what's going on here? this is what a dad looks like.
