One-half of the popular Obama/Biden bromance will be returning to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” next week. 47th Vice President Joe Biden will return to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday, November 13th on CBS. If you’re counting, this will be Biden’s third visit to “The Late Show”, and his first appearance was on Thursday, September 10, 2015.
Biden became the 47th vice president of the United States in 2009. Prior to that, he served 36 years as a U.S. senator from Delaware. He is currently traveling the nation on his American Promise Tour in support of his new book, Promise Me, Dad ($12 on Amazon) which chronicles the year following his son’s brain tumor diagnosis. The series of conversations kicks off in New York on the evening of Monday, Nov. 13, when Biden will be joined on stage at Lincoln Center by Stephen Colbert.
International superstar Elton John, whose new greatest hits album Diamonds will be released on November 10, will also join Colbert for an interview and a performance in his first appearance on “The Late Show”.
While Biden is officially hitting The Late Show to promote his book, many are hoping that the former VP is just testing the waters for a possible Presidential run after Trump’s first term is over. Colbert has been a steady hit with viewers after retooling his monologues and returning to the political scene. “The Colbert Report,” while a satire, was a hit with viewers for skewering anyone in the public domain, and it’s nice to see Colbert returning to his roots to mock anyone misusing their power in the government.
THE LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT, a production of The Late Show Inc., airs weeknights (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht, Tom Purcell and Jon Stewart are the executive producers.
