The Late Show With Stephen Colbert - CBS





The comic interviews guests and introduces musical performances.

Matt Roush says...

If the house band Stay Human has a different vibe the next few weeks, it’s intentional. In a first for the late-night show, famous performers sit in for weeklong music residencies—it’s a first for the musicians as well—starting with Grammy-winning St. Vincent. Next week, the legendary James Taylor sits in, and Joe Walsh guests for the week of Aug. 8.

Guest Schedule

Stephen interviews Senator Chris Murphy and talks with Mindy Kaling, creator of the comedy series Never Have I Ever. Joe Walsh is the musician in residence this week.

Ben Stiller, creator and director of the sci-fi series Severance, discusses his projects and D’Arcy Carden talks on the remake of A League of Their Own. Joe Walsh continues his musical residency.

Guest include Kieran Culkin of the HBO documentary Gaming Wall St and the hip hop super-duo Run the Jewels performs. Joe Walsh continues his musical residency.

Stephen interviews White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Tatiana Maslany discusses Disney+ Marvel series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Joe Walsh continues his musical residency.
