CGI Stephen with Tony Shalhoub

Stephen Colbert has never missed an episode of The Late Show. But what happens when he gets sick?

Enjoy this behind-the-curtain look at the elaborate technology and masterful performance that goes into replacing Stephen so the home audience never suspects a thing.

Special thanks to actress Sunita Mani and the incredible Tony Shalhoub who was (seriously) a highlight of my directing career so far. Maaaaan, that guy is incredibly nice, giving, and a remarkable performer.

Every bit the international treasure you hope him to be! Enjoy, folks!
