Tomorrow night will be the official premiere of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS, and we will definitely be tuning in as the former Comedy Central pundit takes over the show formerly helmed by David Letterman. And if you weren’t already aware, Colbert is a very vocal fan of all things nerdy! He previously used his Comedy Central show as a platform for his rabid geekery, reporting on Harry Potter, transforming his set into The Shire, and interviewing Smaug, just to name a few. We’re hoping Stephen brings his die-hard fandom along with him to The Late Show, and to give you an idea of what we’d like to see, we’re recapping our favorite nerdy Stephen Colbert moments so far.
Join Jessica Chobot as we run down the list of the geekiest moments from the faux-conservative talk show host, from Middle Earth to the planet Jakku, and the reasons why we already think The Late Show is going to be satisfying our cravings for nerdiness, on today’s Nerdist News!
Thanks for watching today’s episode! Get your tickets to the September 14th Fathom event for Nerdist Presents: The Hive, and let us know in the comments if there are any nerdy Colbert moments we missed!
