Even though he's on the lam, Stephen Colbert is not willing to miss another installment of "Lunch With Stephen."
Sitting in his cubicle with "Help Me!" typed out in a document on his computer, Colbert is nearly unrecognizable with his eye patch and mustache disguise. After speaking loudly in German to throw off anyone listening in, he pulls out his lunch. "I'm still dieting," he says before pulling out a bottle wrapped in a brown paper bag. "Only liquids."
It seems that the mess with the bag of money he »
Stephen Colbert is really gearing up for his big premiere as host of The Late Show. The first episode premieres on September 8th, so until then he's giving the preparation everything he's got. First up on the to-do list is to get to know the fans. He's not just the kooky comedian with a fake news show anymore, he's the kooky host of a very serious and very real talk show now. So how is he going to prove that to his new audience? By hosting a week-long luncheon, of course. His new web series is just that: a deskside lunch chat. And it's oh-so-eloquently named "Stephen Colbert Has Stephen Colbert's Daily Lunch With You Starring Stephen Colbert." It's a totally genius idea, »
Stephen Colbert released the second installment of his "Lunch With Stephen" web series, and the latest clip gives us a quick taste of the absurdly charming gags audiences will see when he takes over The Late Show this September.
"Hey, you see that sport last night?" Colbert says early in the quick clip. "So many points and balls!" As he opens his brown bag lunch, the comedian reveals that instead of eating "small-sounding foods" like he did on Monday, he's decided to eat local, having sourced his lunch from the vending machine down the hall. »
Stephen Colbert is still more than a month away from returning to TV, but in the interstitial period between his departure from The Colbert Report and his September 8th premiere on The Late Show, he has turned to YouTube, where he is building up a significant presence. Six weeks after releasing his first YouTube video, Colbert has shared the first episode of a new web series. He has a tête-à-tête with his viewers in Lunch With Stephen, which will premiere new episodes throughout the week on July 20th.
At the beginning of Lunch With Stephen, Colbert explains that his new web series will cater to the growing number of workers who eat lunch (and watch YouTube videos) at their desks. While you munch on your salad or sandwich, Stephen stares back at you, a baby back rib in his hand, and chats you up during your midday break. Lunch With Stephen has a very loose, »

Before premiering his run of The Late Show, new host Stephen Colbert has already made great use of the show's YouTube channel. After posting a few topical, hilarious clips, the former Colbert Report host has debuted a "daily, week-long" series titled Lunch With Stephen.
"I want to get to know my audience just a little bit better," the comedian said after attempting to take a duck face selfie. "I thought what better way to bond with you guys than over lunch. After all, these days a lot of people eat »
The Stephen Colbert–helmed iteration of The Late Show doesn’t commence until September 8, but thankfully Colbert & Co. have been bestowing upon us many little treats and tidbits throughout the summer to make the waiting hurt less.

Stephen Colbert has been keeping himself sharp in the interim between The Colbert Report and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert with his funny, topical run of videos recently. For his latest, he expressed his excitement about Nasa's New Horizons spacecraft reaching Pluto and debated with astrophysicist and Pluto detractor Neil deGrasse Tyson about how "awesome" the dwarf planet actually is.
"After almost a century of near-total mystery, we finally know what Pluto looks like: a malted milk ball left in the rain 4.7 billion miles from the sun," the host said early in the clip. »
