The Late Show Welcoming Back Live Audience
THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT announced May 24, that they will be returning to the Ed Sullivan Theater and welcoming back fully vaccinated audience members starting June 14th.
"Over the last 437 days, my staff and crew (and family!) have amazed me with their professionalism and creativity as we made shows for an audience we couldn't see or hear," said Colbert. "I look forward to once again doing shows for an audience I can smell and touch."
More than a year and 205 episodes produced without a live audience, THE LATE SHOW is looking forward to getting back in contact with their studio audience. The show has been producing episodes remotely since March 16, 2020.
The return to live audiences will be consistent with New York State's adoption of CDC guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals and has been reviewed by the state. Guests to the show will need to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated and face masks will be optional. Staff and crew will continue to test and screen daily for symptoms as well as have a Covid compliance officer on set to monitor and enforce health and safety Covid-19 protocols.
THE LATE SHOW has dominated ratings in late night television for the past five years. The show airs weeknights on CBS at 11:35p.m.-12:27am ET/PT. The series is a production of The Late Show Inc. and is executive produced by Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht, Tom Purcell and Jon Stewart.
The line up of guests to be in studio for the week of June 14th will be announced at a later date.
