Since “The Colbert Report” ended in December, Stephen Colbert has been getting into all sorts of shenanigans. For his latest exploit, he traveled to a small town in Michigan, where he filled in as the host of a local talk show, “Only in Monroe.”
The video seems… surreal. Despite the gap in time till his next gig as host of “Late Show” on CBS, Colbert is staying busy by continuing to surprise his fans, and the gritty back drop of the local public-access show makes Colbert’s witty remarks twice as funny.
During the show, Colbert came up with several hilarious segments, but the interview with Eminem (Marshall Mathers, starting around 22:55) stole the show. It wasn’t quite the talk-show appearance from “The Interview,” but it’s probably the closest we’ll ever get.
Watch and laugh as Colbert and Eminem hum Bob Seger tunes and discuss life in Michigan above.
