>> SCIENTISTS AT A DEPARTMENT OF

ENERGY LAB IN CALIFORNIA HAVE
FIGURED OUT HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY

PRODUCE A NUCLEAR FUSION
REACTION WITH A NET ENERGY GAIN.

THAT MEANS THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED
IN TAKING TWO HYDROGEN ATOMS AND

USING 192 POWERFUL LASERS TO
FORCE THOSE ATOMS TO FUSE

TOGETHER.
>> COMMENCING TEST 1149.

>> ACTIVATING LASER
CONVERGEENCE.

>> FOCUS, FOCUS.
DAMMIT, WHO LET THAT CAT IN

HERE?
>> Announcer: IT'S "THE LATE

SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT!"
TONIGHT:

KEEP CALM AND MARRY ON!
AND, A "LATE SHOW" ANIMATED



CHRISTMAS SPECIAL.
PLUS, STEPHEN WELCOMES:

RuPAUL
AND MUSICAL GUEST, ED SHEERAN

FEATURING LOUIS CATO AND THE
LATE SHOW BAND!

AND NOW, LIVE ON TAPE FROM THEñ<
ED SULLIVAN THEATER IN NEW YORK

CITY, IT'S STEPHEN COLBERT!
>> Stephen: YEAH.

CITY, IT'S STEPHEN COLBERT!
>> Stephen: YEAH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
WE HAVE A GOOD SHOW.

GOOD SHOW.
HAPPY TUESDAY.

WE HAVE A GOOD SHOW, EVERYBODY.
WELCOME, ONE AND ALL...

THANK YOU.
WELCOME TO "THE LATE SHOW."

I'M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT.
(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Stephen: LADIES AND
GENTLEMEN,

IT'S A GREAT DAY FOR LOVE, AND
FOR LOVING LOVE.

AND FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO LOVE
THOSE WHO LOVE LOVE.



BECAUSE THIS AFTERNOON,
PRESIDENT BIDEN SIGNED THE

"RESPECT FOR MARRIAGE ACT,"
WHICH GUARANTEES LEGAL

RECOGNITION OF ALL MARRIAGES.
THAT IS GREAT NEWS!

AND I HOPE YOU WERE LISTENING,
ALAN AND BRAD.

NO MORE EXCUSES!
GRANDMA'S NOT GOING TO LIVE

FOREVER.
I BOOKED THE DOUBLETREE BY THE

LAKE FOR JUNE 9th.
GET A LINEN SUIT.

THIS LAW IS THE CULMINATION OF A
HUGE CHANGE IN AMERICAN SOCIETY.

SINCE 2004, SUPPORT FOR SAME-SEX
MARRIAGE HAS GONE FROM 42% TO

68%.
AND EVEN AMONG REPUBLICANS,

-- THAT NUMBER-- HAS GONE FROM %
TO 43%.

SO, PROGRESS.
BUT, STILL SLIGHTLY LESS THAN

THE NUMBER OF REPUBLICANS WHO
BELIEVE J.F.K. JR. IS GOING TO

RISE FROM THE DEAD TO CREATE AN
EVEN BETTER PILLOW.

(APPLAUSE)
THE WHITE HOUSE MADE THE SIGNING

A BIG EVENT, WITH DRAG QUEENS IN
ATTENDANCE ON THE SOUTH LAWN.

THAT'S HOW WE SHOULD CELEBRATE
EVERY NEW PIECE OF LEGISLATION.

"HERE TO COMMEMORATE THE PASSAGE
OF EFFICIENCY STANDARDS FOR

MANUFACTURED HOMES, PLEASE
WELCOME TRIXIE MATTEL!"

"YOUR HVAC SYSTEM'S GOING TO
WERK!"

HE INSULATED WERK, CHANGE THOSE
FILTERS WERK, WERK!

WE'RE
WE'RE LEARNING MORE INSIDE

DETAILS ABOUT WHAT WENT ON IN
THE LEAD-UP TO THE JANUARY 6th

ATTACK, COURTESY OF FORMER
WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF

MARK MEADOWS, SEEN HERE SCARING
THE GIRL FROM "THE RING" BACK

INTO THE TV.
MEADOWS WAS FORCED TO HAND OVER

HIS JANUARY 6th TEXT MESSAGES
TO THE HOUSE SELECT COMMITTEE,

AND LAST NIGHT, THE WEBSITE
TALKING POINTS MEMO ANNOUNCED

THAT IT HAD OBTAINED A BUNCH OF
THEM, SHOWING THAT MEADOWS

EXCHANGED TEXTS WITH 34 MEMBERS
OF CONGRESS ABOUT PLANS TO

OVERTURN THE 2020 ELECTION.
THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

34 PEOPLE WANT TO TALK TO MARK
MEADOWS?

THE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
THESE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, ALL

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
COMMUNICATING WITH MEADOWS

WERE-- AND IT'S NOT MY PLACE TO
EDITORIALIZE--

STUPID, EVIL TRAITORS WHO WERE
TRYING TO DO CRIMES AGAINST

DEMOCRACY, FOR WHICH THEY
SHOULD BE PUNISHED WITH DECADES

OF JAIL TIME.
IS

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
ONE OF THE WORST OF THE BADS IS

SOUTH CAROLINA REPRESENTATIVE
RALPH NORMAN--

BREAKER-BREAKER, 10-4 BACK DOOR,
WHAT'S YOUR 10-20, CATCH YOU ON

THE FLIP.
HE WROTE TO MEADOWS, "MARK,

WE ARE AT A POINT OF NO RETURN
IN SAVING OUR REPUBLIC!

OUR LAST HOPE IS INVOKING
MARSHALL LAW!"

OKAY, INVOKING MARTIAL LAW MEANS
THIS CONGRESSMAN WAS CALLING FOR

MILITARY INVOLVEMENT IN A COUP.
AGAIN, PUT HIM IN JAIL.

ALSO, PUT HIM THROUGH
SPELL-CHECK, BECAUSE IT'S

"MARTIAL LAW," WITH A "T."
"MARSHALL LAW" IS THE NEW CBS

LEGAL DRAMA STARRING EMINEM AS
JUDGE MARSHALL.

MATHERS.
WHICH REMINDS ME, WATCH

"MARSHALL LAW" ON CBS,
SATURDAYS, AT 1:45.

RIGHT AFTER ALL-NEW EPISODES OF
"THE ENFORCENATOR."

NORMAN ALSO CALLED OUT ANYONE
UNWILLING TO OVERTURN THE

RESULTS, TEXTING, "JUST
RESULTS, TEXTING, "JUST

BECAUSE THE BIASED MEDIA HAS
CALL THE ELECTION?"

HE RIGHT.
I CAN'T BELIEVE BIAS MEDIA

CALL THE ELECTION JUST BECAUSE
VOTE WERE COUNT!

THEN THERE'S THIS HELPFUL TEXT
FROM ARIZONA REPRESENTATIVE PAUL

GOSAR: "CALL ME, I HAVE SOME
FIREWORKS COMING OUT OF ARIZONA

EARLY TOMORROW.
CALL ME ANYTIME, I'M UP."

"I'M UP?"
I KNOW ARIZONA IS A DESERT, BUT

THIS GUY IS THIRSTY.
SPEAKING OF CRIMINALS, IT'S

BEEN A ROUGH FEW WEEKS FOR
CRYPTO EXCHANGE FOUNDER AND

MAN WHO TOLD HIS BARBER,
"GIVE ME THE SHOWER DRAIN"...

SAM BANKMAN-FRIED.
BANKMAN-FRIED WAS THE C.E.O. OF

CRYPTO-EXCHANGE FTX, WHICH
RECENTLY WENT BELLY-UP AND COST

INVESTORS $1.8 BILLION.
WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO,

WHEN YOU CAN'T TRUST THE GUY
SELLING IMAGINARY COMPUTER COINS

WHOSE NAME IS ALMOST EXACTLY
"BANK MAN FRAUD"?

WHAT NEXT?
WHAT IS NEXT.

TALK TO ME IT WHAT'S NEXT.
DON'T GET YOUR ANNUAL CHECK-UP

FROM DR. GUY DETH-KAUSER?
YESTERDAY, BANKMAN-FRIED WAS

ARRESTED IN THE BAHAMAS.
TODAY, PROSECUTORS UNSEALED AN

EIGHT-CHARGE INDICTMENT, RANGING
FROM WIRE FRAUD, TO MONEY

LAUNDERING, TO CONSPIRACY TO
COMMIT FRAUD ON THE UNITED

STATES, WHICH MEANS HE COULD
FACE UP TO 115 YEARS IN PRISON.

BECAUSE THIS ALLEGEDLY GUILTY
GUY IS ALLEGEDLY VERY GUILTY.

ALLEGEDLY.
HOW ALLEGEDLY?

GILLEE IS HE ALLEGEDLY?
TURNS OUT, FTX'S INNER CIRCLE

HAD A SECRET CHAT GROUP CALLED
"WIREFRAUD."

(LAUGHTER).
>> Stephen: OKAY,

THAT'S A WEIRD CONFESSION.
THAT'S LIKE GETTING A BUMPER

STICKER THAT SAYS, "PROUD PARENT
OF AN HONOR STUDENT, AND I'M AN

ARSONIST."
SPEAKING OF FRAUD, THERE'S A

NEW SCHEME FROM FORMER PRESIDENT
THE WHITE SCROTUS.

REPORTEDLY, HE'S GOING TO
RELEASE A "BOOK OF LETTERS" NEXT

YEAR.
FIRST, OF COURSE, HE'LL HAVE TO

LEARN ALL 26.
>> NICE, NICE.

(APPLAUSE)
"'A' IS FOR AMERICA--

I MADE IT GREAT AGAIN.
'B IS FOR BOOBIES--

WHICH WERE ALWAYS PRETTY GREAT.
'C' IS FOR KING--

I LOVE HIS BURGERS."
>> WOW, HOW THEY TASTE.

>> Stephen: HAVEN'T DOON THAT
IN A PEW YEARS.

ACTUALLY, THE BOOK WILL CONTAIN
THE FORMER PRESIDENT'S PRIVATE

CORRESPONDENCE WITH PAST AND
PRESENT CELEBRITIES AND

INTERNATIONAL ICONS.
WOW.

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S MEMOIR WAS
OVER 750 PAGES, SINGLE-SPACED,

AND THAT WAS PART ONE.
THIS GUY'S PUBLISHING BIRTHDAY

CARDS FROM FAMOUS PEOPLE SIGNED
BY THEIR INTERNS.

IT'S THE LAZIEST PRESIDENTIAL
BOOK SINCE EISENHOWER'S

"ALL MY CVS RECEIPTS."
ALLEGEDLY, THE BOOK WILL INCLUDE

CORRESPONDENCE WITH ELTON JOHN,
PRINCESS DIANA, AND MICHAEL

JACKSON.
IT'S GOING TO BE FASCINATING TO

SEE HOW THESE ICONS, EACH IN
THEIR OWN UNIQUE WAY, SAY,

"I DO NOT WANT TO BE ON
'CELEBRITY APPRENTICE'."

THERE'S ANOTHER SMALL STORY
TODAY-- ALL OF OUR ENERGY

PROBLEMS MAY BE OVER.
BECAUSE TODAY, THE U.S.

ANNOUNCED A MAJOR NUCLEAR FUSION
BREAKTHROUGH THAT COULD HELP

HARNESS THE SUN'S POWER.
HA-HA!

SCREW YOU, SUN!
WE DON'T NEED YOU ANY MORE, OLD

MAN!
PACK YOUR SUNGLASSES, AND QUIT

LURKING AROUND THE CORNER OF OUR
KIDS' DRAWINGS!

IT'S CREEPY!
HERE'S THE BREAKTHROUGH.

SCIENTISTS HAVE BEEN TRYING TO
GENERATE POWER USING NUCLEAR

FUSION FOR ABOUT 70 YEARS.
AND NOW, FOR THE FIRST TIME,

THEY HAVE CREATED A REACTOR THAT
GENERATED MORE POWER THAN IT

CONSUMED.
IT'S A HANUKKAH MIRACLE!

AND... I'M BEING TOLD IT'S
ACTUALLY SCIENCE.

HERE'S HOW IT WENT DOWN.
SCIENTISTS CREATED THIS FUSION

ENERGY BY SMASHING ATOMS
TOGETHER AT INCREDIBLY

HIGH SPEEDS, USING 192 LASERS,
AS NPR EXPLAINED.

>> THIS IS VERY EXCITING!
HOW DID THEY DO THIS?

>> WITH LASERS.
IT'S LIKE THE--

>> LASERS!
>> CLASSIC SCIENCE.

PEW-PEW-PEW!
>> Stephen: THAT CLEARS THAT UP.

IT REMINDS ME OF THE FAMOUS
WORDS OF ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL.

>> MR. WATSON, COME HERE.
IT'S LIKE

RING-A-DING-A-DING-DONG,
HELLOOO?

THEY HAD THE FORE THOUGHT TO
RECORD THAT, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

>> Stephen: THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
FUSION COULD BE AN INFINITE

SOURCE OF CLEAN ENERGY, THAT
COULD HELP END DEPENDENCE ON

FOSSIL FUELS.
HOT DOG, GLOBAL WARMING IS OVER!

GOOD NEWS, FLORIDA!
YOU'RE SAVED.

BAD NEWS, AMERICA--
WE SAVED FLORIDA.

ONLY ONE SMALL PROBLEM...
FUSION WILL NOT CONTRIBUTE

MEANINGFULY TO STOPPING CLIMATE
CHANGE IN THE NEXT 20-30 YEARS.

HERE'S WHY.
ACCORDING TO A EXPERT IN THE

U.K., THE CURRENT FUSION SETUP
CAN ONLY PRODUCE ENOUGH ENERGY

TO BOIL ABOUT TEN KETTLES OF
WATER.

THAT IS THE MOST BRITISH WAY TO
MEASURE ANYTHING.

(/ BRITISH/ )
BOIL TEN KETTLES, COOK FIVE

SHEPARD'S PIES, OR ROAST ONE
PADDINGON BEAR."

WE'VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU
TONIGHT!

MY GUEST IS RuPAUL.
BUT WHEN WE COME BACK, THE

DEBUT OF OUR ANNUAL "LATE SHOW"
HOLIDAY CARTOON.

>> Stephen:
>> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY.

JINGLE, ANY LAST-MINUTE LETTERS

YOU THAT I LOVE YOU, AND I LOVE
THE ELVES AND REINDEER, TOO."

>> AWWW!
>> AWWW!

WORTHWHILE!
IN THE END, TO LOVE AND BELIEVE

GINGERBREAD INFANTRY.
>> AH!

THE COOKIES ARE TOO STRONG FOR
RUSSIAN TANK!

>> BUT, WILL THEY BE ABLE TO
HOLD OUT AGAINST PUTIN'S ARMY OF

MERCENARY SNOW BEASTS AND
GUERRILLA GUE-RINCHES?

>> DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS OF
CONGRESS... AND THE OTHER ONES.

>> SUCK MY CHESTNUTS, SANTA.
>> CHRISTMAS IS A SEASON OF

GIVING.
BUT THIS YEAR, ONE MAN IS

HELL-BENT ON TAKING.
AND SO, SANTA MUST ASK YOU FOR A

GIFT THIS CHRISTMAS.
THE PRESENT EVERY GOOD LITTLE

BOY AND GIRL DREAMS OF:
$17.6 BILLION IN SECURITY

ASSISTANCE.

ANOTHER MILESTONE WE ARE COMING

UP, THIS IS THE 30th
ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR OF YOUR

BREAKOUT HIT SUPERMODEL, YOU
BETTER WERK.

>> 30 YEARS.
>> Stephen: 30 YEARS.

30 YEARS.
FIRST OF ALL, WHAT WAS THAT

MOMENT LIKE 30 YEARS AGO.
BECAUSE IT IS AN ICONIC, I MAID

A REFERENCE TO IT IN THE
MONOLOGUE HAVING NOTHING TO DO

WITH THE FACT THAT YOU WERE HERE
TONIGHT.

THOSE WERE JUST PARALLEL
EVOLUTIONS.

WHAT IS IT LIKE WHEN YOU BREAK
THROUGH LIKE THAT AND SUDDENLY

BECOME A TOUCHSTONE, A BUY WORD?
>> LISTEN, ALL SERIOUSLY, IT IS

SO AMAZING.
IN FACT, I WAS BACKSTAGE THINK

BEING THE ED SULLIVAN THEATER,
GROWING UP WATCHING THE

SUPREMES.
IN THE VERY THEATER.

AND IT IS SO AMAZING TO HAVE
YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE LIKE THIS.

AND YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS A KID,
MY MOTHER-- SAID, SHE SAID YOU

KNOW, MY MOTHER WHEN SHE WAS
PREG NAPT WITH ME, SHE WENT TO A

PSYCHIC WHO TOLD HER, YOU ARE
GOING TO HAVE A BOY AND HE'S

GOING TO BE FAMOUSMENT AND I HAD
NO IDEA HOW I WAS GOING TO MAKE

THAT HAPPEN.
I DIDN'T FLOW I WAS GOING TO BE

IN DRAG.
I DIDN'T KNOW ANY OF THAT.

I JUST KNEW THAT WAS GOING TO
HAPPEN.

AND TO HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS
HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFETIME WITH SCO

WHERE SO MANY THINGS CAN GO
WRONG, IT'S AMAZING.

AND THIS, THIS CAME OUT ON MY
BIRTHDAY, NOVEMBER 17th,,

1992.
AND IT WAS-- I COULDN'T HAVE

PLANNED IT ANY BETTER.
>> Stephen: WOW.

I WANT TO POINT SOMETHING OUT.
WHEN ARE YOU FULLY IN DRAG, YOU

YOU YOU LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME.
YOU ARE LIKE, YOU GOT TO SEND ME

A CARD OF YOUR DOCTOR OR
SOMETHING.

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOU LOOK
EXACTLY JUST AS GLAMOROUS, DIVA

GLARNLINGS I REALIZE BUT HOW DO
YOU STAY SO GLAMOROUS.

>> I DON'T KNOW T IS ALL A
SYSTEM OF PULLEYS AND WEIGHTS

AND SMOKE AND MIRRORS.
YOU KNOW, I HONESTLY.

>> Stephen: A LOT OF TAPE.
>> LOTS OF TAPE.

HERE IS THE THING, WHEN I'M ALL
DONE UP AND SEE MYSELF IN THE

MIRROR, I GO WOW, THAT IS ME?
EVEN SEEING THAT PICTURE RIGHT

THERE, WOW, THAT'S AMAZING.
YOU KNOW, IT IS NOT-- IT IS NOT

LOST ON ME.
IT IS AMAZING TO ME TOO.

>> Stephen: WERE YOU THE FIRST
DRAG PERFORMER WHO GOT A BIG

COSMETIC DEAL?
BECAUSE YOU WERE THE FACE OF MAC

BACK IN THE '90S.
>> I WAS THE FIRST MAN TO HAVE A

COSMETIC, YES, I AM A MAN.
>> Stephen: YOU HAVE A GOATEE.

>> I WAS THE FIRST MANS TO HAVE
A COSMETIC CONTRACT AND THAT WAS

THE MAC CAMPAIGN BACK YEARS AGO.
AND BUT YES, AND FIRST DRAG,

ABSOLUTELY.
AMAZING.
