The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert continues to be a stopping point on the campaign trail. You can see Democratic candidate for president Michael Bloomberg visit the Ed Sullivan Theater on Tuesday, Jan. 14.
Bloomberg will be Stephen Colbert’s guest for a special live edition of The Late Show following the Democratic debate. The former New York City mayor did not qualify to participate in Tuesday night’s debate. Much of Bloomberg’s campaign has been self-financed, meaning he did not meet donor thresholds set by the Democratic National Committee.
That could ultimately be a good thing for Mayor Bloomberg. Rather than share the stage and spotlight with frontrunners like Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders, Mayor Bloomberg will be the sole focus of Colbert’s audience. Past post-debate live shows have been a huge success for The Late Show and Tuesday night should be no different.
Mayor Bloomberg has appeared on The Late Show in the past. But that was two years ago to discuss his book and climate change. When he announced his 2020 bid for the White House, Colbert didn’t hold back in calling out the former mayor’s questionable track record. Fans will no doubt be eager to see how Colbert approaches Bloomberg in addition to reacting to the debate.
