Larry Wilmore Crashes Colbert's 'Late Show,' Wants in on 'All the Best Racial Stuff' (Video)

Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" audience was thrilled to have Larry Wilmore introduce the show with a monologue about Donald Trump. Then Colbert walked onto the stage. 


“This is my show, Larry, why are you doing the monologue?” Colbert asked.

“Uh, I’m sorry, man,” Wilmore said. “I thought whoever leaves 11:30 at Comedy Central just gets ‘The Late Show,’ I don’t know.”

The two sat down to discuss what Wilmore had missed since "The Nightly Show" ended in mid-August. 

"I'm going to take a page out of your book, let's keep it 100," Colbert told Wilmore. "How do you feel about that?" 

Wilmore wasn't buying it.

"Are you trying to get me canceled again, Stephen? What's going on?" said Wilmore.

The former "Nightly Show" host's biggest disappointment? Not being able to cover "the best worst racial stuff" of the past two weeks.

"I will say I am very upset that they cancel a brother's show when all the best worse racial stuff started happening," Wilmore told Colbert. "Hillary calls Trump a bigot, he calls her a bigot, he's going on this Mexican tour, you've got a quarterback that won't stand for the national anthem on race issues. The best race stuff happens when I lose my show!"

"Always the last place you look," Colbert remarked ironically.
