tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  June 1, 2022 11:35pm-12:37am PDT

11:35 pm
colbert is coming up captioning sponsored by cbs >> tech billionaire elon musk is pushing back against allegations that he sexually harassed a spacex flight attendant back in 2016. >> musk allegedly exposed himself to that flight attendant during a massage, and that he then offered to buy her a horse in exchange for sex acts. >> spacex employees, give it up for your c.e.o., elon musk! ( applause ) >> good afternoon. today, i would like to clarify
11:36 pm
something. to all of you, my staff. and that is... what sexual favor i am seeking when i offer which animal. remember, they all rhyme. a horse means intercourse. if i give you a rabbit, go ahead and grab it. and then, of course, a stick bug for a quick tug. now, anyone who is upset they weren't offered an animal can stop by my office and i will personally give you crabs. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight, monkey see, monkey flu! plus, stephen welcomes jennifer connelly! and patti lupone! featuring jon batiste and "stay human." and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) ( theme song playing ) >> stephen: hey, what's going i see you. e.ere you ar right over there. ( band playing ) ( cheers and applause ) watch out, watch out!
11:37 pm
♪ ♪ ♪ every monday. every monday. hello, louis! it's good to see you. endia, good to see you. what's up, negah? mr. lampley, mr. fouche, good to se you. joseph. ( audience chanting stephen ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: welcome, one and all! down here, up there, high and away over there. hello, gentlemen, ladies, good to see you. welcome, one and all, to "the late show." i am your host, stephen colbert. now-- ( cheers and applause ) folks, if you watch this show regularly, and i hope you do, you know that i try to have a pretty positive outlook on the world, such as it is. i see the glass as half full. i don't always know what the liquid is, and i'm definitely not drinking it-- but it's half full. but current events have me a little unsettled, a little-- a little flurpy about america's future.
11:38 pm
and i'm not alone, because according to a recent cbs news/ yougov/ mountain dew: code red poll, "america's mood is uneasy and worried." things are so stressful, our national bird is now the balding eagle. ( laughter ) so-- it looks good. long may he wave. ( cheers and applause ) just going to shave it? ( laughter ) according to the poll, 74% of americans say things in america are going badly, and 65% of americans say that when important things come up, president biden is slow to act. well, yeah! he's 79! ( laughter ) at his age, if he moves too fast, he'll get bruised by his shirt. ( laughter ) the g.o.p. doesn't fare well in this poll either, because the republicans are described by a majority as "extreme." the g.o.p. responded, "this poll is illegitimate, no one feels that way, and when we return to power, anyone who feels that way will be sorry when we make the purge real."
11:39 pm
( laughter ) speaking-- good movie, though. quality movie. ( cheers and applause ) speaking of the president dealing with our problems, he left us. he's in asia. this weekend, he was in south korea, and during a press conference, he was asked about the threat that north korea might shoot off some missiles while he's over there. ( laughter ) >> stephen: first of all, whose idea was it to hold a press conference in front of a raging waterfall? that's what you do if you're a mobster and you're afraid somebody's wearing a wire. today, he held a press conference next to a guy operating a jackhammer. and that message itself, "hello," has got to be pretty disappointing for kim jong-un. he spent four years being the focus of u.s. foreign policy, getting love letters from the
11:40 pm
former president. all he gets from biden is hello? it's the most casual presidential greeting of an adversary since reagan said this at the berlin wall: >> mr. gorbachev, how's it hangin', bro? ( laughter ) >> stephen: how was it hangin'? i remember how it hung. how it hanged. as so? to the right? but north korea's not the only foreign power biden has a message for. today, while in tokyo, japan, he was asked this hypothetical about china attacking taiwan: >> are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan, if it comes to that? >> yes. >> stephen: gulp. ( laughter ) come on, joe, we have enough going on. it's like that old coco chanel saying, "before you leave the house, look in the mirror, and don't go to war with china." ( laughter ) biden's very blunt statement surprised many, including the reporter who asked it, so she
11:41 pm
followed up. >> you are? >> that's a commitment we made. >> stephen: he sounds so resigned. "i know the spark has gone out of our marriage, doris, but it's a commitment we made, so let's go upstairs and do the nasty, i guess. or, right here on the kitchen counter. it's not like the kids are around anymore to interrupt us." ( laughter ) but, this is important, because the u.s. has historically warned china not to use force against taiwan, while generally remaining vague about how far it would go, in a policy called strategic ambiguity. johnny, tell them what strategic ambiguity means! >> if you invade taiwan, you'll get whatever's in the mystery box! it could be a nuclear strike, or a broyhill dinette set. may god have mercy on our souls, steve! >> stephen: thank you, johnny. ( applause )
11:42 pm
so, it seems like biden might have just stepped in it a little bit, which is why, after his very firm "yes," he did a little backstroke. >> look, here's the situation: we agree with a one-china policy. but the idea that it could be taken by force, just taken by force, is just not appropriate. it will dislocate the entire region, and be another action, similar to what happened in ukraine. and so, it's a burden that is even stronger. ( audience reacts ) ( laughter ) ( laughter and applause ) >> stephen: i would describe the biden foreign policy as wistful anxiety.
11:43 pm
( laughter ) he's just following teddy roosevelt's famous dictum: speak softly. ( laughter ) now, when the president was over in asia, he addressed the hot new virus everybody's talking about. i'll tell you about it in our unfortunately recurring segment: ( howling monkey ) >> planet of the monkeypox! >> take your stinking pox off me, you damn dirty apes! >> stephen: while he was in korea, the president was asked about the disease, and said that "everybody should be concerned." way ahead of you. ( laughter ) and i understand why, because there are more than 190 confirmed or suspected cases in 16 countries, including the u.k., portugal, germany, belgium, france, the netherlands, italy, sweden, and spain. evidently, monkeypox is traveling through europe. even worse, it now insists on pronouncing it bar-tha-lona. ( laughter )
11:44 pm
driving in a lorry. monkeypox has also monkeyed its way over to america, where there is now a third case down in florida. but, that's fine! because florida knows how to handle a disease outbreak, right governor desantis? >> covid, in my view, is a very minor risk. >> stephen: okay. we're all dead. ( laughter ) now, there's a reason monkeypox has been spreading so quickly. according one infectious disease expert at the w.h.o., "it has gotten into the population as a sexual form, a genital form." now, i'm no doctor, but i know that the genital form of something is always the worst possible form. ( laughter ) "i'm sorry, mr. smith, it looks like you have a sinus infection. the genital form. ( laughter ) here's a-- ( applause ) here's a nasal spray.
11:45 pm
you're not going to like where that goes." ( laughter ) thanks to our meddling genitals, this could just keep spreading. the w.h.o. is concerned, monkeypox could accelerate during summer months with mass gatherings like festivals. so be careful around primate-themed festivals, like lollapa-lemur, chimp-chella, and bonobo-roo. ( laughter ) there is, however, some good news for the babies, and it's not just that i never really had your nose-- i'm sorry for the mix-up. because, to help relieve the country's ongoing formula shortage, on sunday, the u.s. military airlifted baby formula from europe. that is a shocking headline! the united states, the land of the free and the home of unlimited breadsticks, has been forced to airlift formula from europe because we can't feed our babies. if i told you five years ago
11:46 pm
this was happening, you'd say, that's got to be the worst news of the day. and then i would tell you about genital monkeypox. ( laughter ) but-- ( cheers and applause ) which also came from europe! which we also got from europe. but thanks to our european friends, our babies are ready to chow down on 132 pallets of formula from zurich, switzerland. ooh, and the swiss formula is the best-- it's got those little marshmallows in it. ( laughter ) and, i'm being told we have just received footage of the formula landing. >> brrr-brrr-brrr, here comes the plane, open up! nom-nom-nom-nom, nom-nom-nom. ( laughter ) >> stephen: speaking of-- ( laughter ) speaking of whiny little babies, billionaires. according to a new study, during the covid pandemic, a new billionaire was created every 30 hours. specifically between march 2020 and march 2022, 573 people became new billionaires, including 40 new pharmaceutical
11:47 pm
billionaires. which is so sad. you know they're just going to blow it all on drugs. ( laughter ) we also saw the addition of 62 new food billionaires. and, we actually have a reaction from one such billionaire. >> i-- i'm rich, bitch! >> stephen: we've got a great show for you tonight. ( cheers and applause ) my guests are jennifer connelly and patti lupone. but when we come back, are celebrities scamming you about crypto? stay tuned after these celebrity crypto commercials to find out. ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing )

11:54 pm
we won a webby award. ( cheers and applause ) look at that. it's practical. you can use this! >> it's functional. >> stephen: you can-- like, if your suspension goes out on your jeep, you can put this right in. we won-- this is the people's voice award for interview/ talk show podcast, and we're also an honoree in the comedy podcast category. thank you, webbys. thank you, everyone who voted for this. ( cheers and applause ) thank you to our podcast people for doing the podcast every night. ( applause ) all right. so, ladies and gentlemen, if you're a daredevil investor, then you know it's been a bit of a bumpy ride recently for cryptocurrency. bitcoin is down 59% from its all-time high, and ethereum is down 60%. there's also been a big drop in amaze-eum, and i-just-made- that-up-eum. ( laughter ) with crypto crashing, if you own a non-fungible token, or n.f.t.,
11:55 pm
you are so funged, because, evidently, celebrity-endorsed n.f.t.s are leaving investors financially crippled. even worse, the n.f.t.s that do still have value, just caught monkeypox. now, reportedly, some celebrities have gotten big money to endorse n.f.t.s. for instance, bored bunny n.f.t.s endorsed by floyd mayweather. and there's no better source of long-term financial advice than from a man who made his money getting punched in the head. ( laughter ) and while we're here... why "bored bunny?" do all n.f.t. animals have to be "bored?" why can't we be ripped off by something with a little more zazz, like a mildly-interested marmot? or emo emu? now, when-- when the champ, mayweather, first endorsed bored bunnies, each n.f.t. cost about $1,500. now, a bored bunny will fetch you $104.09. that's painful, but not nearly as painful as having to
11:56 pm
tell your kids, "you won't be attending college because daddy bought a picture of a rabbit with a machine gun and a pacifier." ( laughter ) and i can see why people got duped-- if you go to the bored bunny website, you'll see their promise: "together, let's build the best exclusive club never seen before. show to the world how strong and influent we are." ( laughter ) and if you fell for that, i'm guessing you were under the influent. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) now, it's a red flag-- ( laughter ) it's a red flag when your retirement plan doesn't have a great grasp of grammar. reminds me of capital one's failed ad campaign: "capital one what wallet inside? loud and power in!" we'll be right back with jennifer connelly.

( laughter ) or an off-ramp to a perilous junction, or something like that? is there danger zone in the movie? >> so much danger zone. >> stephen: okay, good, good. okay, then you go to london. then you go to london. okay, here we go, this is-- >> we went to london, and we-- >> stephen: this is the royal premiere. >> --had a royal premiere. >> stephen: there you are-- >> which is very special. >> stephen: --with kate and william. had you met them before? >> i had never met them before. i have, once before, been to a royal premiere. >> stephen: i love this photo. you must love this photo, too. >> i love this. >> stephen: tell the folks what i'm about to show them. >> it's a photo, the last time i

12:05 am
how did you not just accidentally cross paths over time? >> yeah, i don't think that happens by accident. i don't think much of anything happens by accident with tom. >> stephen: with tom? ( laughs ) likee pration, theg. it's just extraordinary. but he-- i met him, and my first impression was kind of the takeaway, which is, i've never met anyone more enthusiastic about everything than tom cruise. >> stephen: wow. ( laughter ) >> yeah. >> stephen: wow. i think for me, it would probably be the teeth. his teeth are so beautiful. ( laughter ) such beautiful teeth. now-- ( laughter ) it's true! you've got to grant me that. ( applause ) doesn't he have beautiful teeth? >> beautiful teeth. >> stephen: you're no slouch yourself. those are some nice gnashers. >> thanks. ( laughter ) >> stephen: because i sit here and i interview the guests, and i'm looking at the teeth most of the time. ( laughter ) >> very important. >> stephen: that's what i'm thinking, yeah. "top gun," incredible flying sequences, you know, in the original, and this one, they say it's-- as you said, it's really kicked it up a notch. >> i think they're even better, yeah, yeah. >> stephen: but you're not-- you don't-- you're not a huge fan of flying? >> oh, my gosh! i-- i-- no.
12:06 am
i'm not a big fan of flying, and i actually went through a stage where i was incredibly bad at flying. it was very traumatic for me, and for anyone anywhere near me on an airplane. >> stephen: you just lost your nerve? >> i literally got to a point where i just-- it started with a bang on one flight when we took off, and i just decided it wasn't okay, and i shouted that it wasn't okay-- >> stephen: to the-- to the-- >> out loud, to the whole plane- full of people. >> stephen: you said, what, "this isn't okay?" >> "help! ( laughter ) help!" >>en: suan nam ost soe. nd it was bad. anyway, anyway... >> stephen: somewhere, they wrote your name on a list. >> it was the beginning-- it was the beginning of a bad chapter. >> stephen: for this, did you do any training-- i know you're not a pilot on this, but did you go up, did you fly with the jets or anything like that? >> i wasn't supposed to... >> stephen: oh, boy! >> ...but then there was a scene, a very lovely scene at one point where we're just, you know-- tom and i are in this plane. we're just supposed to be sitting on the tarmac. ad he starts talking to me about this plane. "it's a p51, it's a vintage plane"-- it happens to be his plane-- and "have i ever done any aerobatic flying?" and "am i
12:07 am
interested in aerobatic flying?" and i start to become suspicious that i'm going to be doing aerobatic flying...

( laughter ) let's do it! it will be great. >> stephen: did you just takeoff-- at that moment, did you takeoff? >> no, we didn't take off at that moment. ( laughter ) >> stephen: well, i didn't know. i thought maybe he just, like, trapped you, locked the doors, "let's go." >> yeah. no! they planned for it. and, you know, gave-- >> stephen: and how was it? was it beautiful and graceful and everything you'd want it to be? >> honestly, it was-- i mean, look, we started, and he started the engine and flames burst out. that surprised me, definitely. >> stephen: wow. but that's supposed to happen. >> evidently, yeah. he forget to tell me that that might happen.
12:08 am
>> stephen: yeah, sure, yeah. >> it actually was. we took off and it was dawn and we were in the desert and it was kind of beautiful. >> stephen: that's fantastic. tom? i'll go up with you.

>> i was taking lessons before, in preparation, for... >> stephen: so, just for this movie? >> yeah. >> stephen: because that's a sizable boat. that's probably a 36-, 40-foot boat, something like that. >> yeah, and we're moving really fast, so. >> stephen: yeah. did you like the feeling? of the helm in your hand? >> i loved it! ( laughter ) yes! sounds like a euphemism, but, yeah. >> stephen: sure. ( laughter ) yes. it can be both. >> it was great. it was amazing. i was taking lessons, in-- i started in new york, here, you know, because i live in brooklyn. >> stephen: in the harbor. >> yes, taking lessons in the harbor, which is interesting. >> stephen: that's busy. >> yeah, it's kind of like learning to drive on the autobahn, you know. ( laughter ) i don't recommend it as a place to learn how to sail. >> stephen: or learning how to skateboard on the autobahn. >> yeah, exactly. so yeah, i was doing that and everywhere i went before filming, i was trying to take sailing lessons to prepare. >> stephen: well, jennifer, it's lovely to see you, thank you so much for being here. >> it's lovely to see you. >> stephen: i look forward to seeing it in imax. >> thank you.

folks, my next guest tonight is a two-time tony award winner and a broadway legend. she now stars in "company" on broadway, which just earned her yet another tony nomination. please welcome to "the late show," patti lupone! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: hey, kiddo. >> stephen: hey, kiddo. good to see you again. >> and you. >> stephen: it's been a long, long time. >> long time. you got me through the pandemic, i have to say, in all sorts of rooms you were in. >> stephen: yeah! we migrated. it was a movable feast. ( laughter ) okay, i want to talk about something that got a lot of attention-- earlier this month, you were in a talk-back at the end of "company"-- >> look at these wonderful people with their masks on! >> stephen: isn't that lovely?
12:22 am
( cheers and applause ) and-- yes! these people get it. >> yes, right. >> stephen: so, and, you-- you made news. you told an audience member during this talk-back to put their mask on, inside the theater, because they weren't wearing it correctly-- >> properly, right. >> stephen: --and really making trouble with this. we have a little clip right here. jim? ( laughter ) >> just keep-- you sir, right next to her. put your mask over your nose. that's why you're in the theater. that is the rule. if you don't want to follow the rule, get ( bleep ) out!

( bleep ). chris harper pays my salary. who do you think you are? >> stephen: well! >> yes. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: so-- what happened? how did it get to that point? because you're a lovely person. >> sometimes.
12:23 am
( laughter ) >> stephen: what led up to that moment? >> well, for instance, you know, we are now used to looking out at the audience, and you see people with masks on. you know, i see the eyes. usually you see the whole face, but i see the eyes. i know what's going on on-stage. this was a talk-back. there were about 100 people in the audience. so when you see everybody except for two people, this woman and her half-asleep husband, with the mask off, you just immediately see it. but what led up to it, and it's what nobody covered in the press, was what she did when our covid safety managers came down to tell her to put it on correctly. she took it off, waved it in the air, and then put it over her eyes. so she was mocking the mandate, and mocking the covid safety managers, who get abuse every night. i mean, we have-- the ushers go up and down the aisle. and we just got an email today, somebody else is out. you know, we're not out of this. we're not out of it at the jacobs theater. >> stephen: wow.
12:24 am
do you need me to go in? do you need me to do the show? >> oh, wouldn't that be great! do you know how much they would love that! >> stephen: now, did you anticipate this-- it made such a splash, now you can buy merchandise that has it on it. you can have "who do you think you are?"-- patti lupone. ( cheers and applause ) >> which seems to be my go-to! >> stephen: yes, "who do you think you are?" >> it just seems to be my go-to. i have to come up with another expression. ( laughter ) i don't know. >> stephen: you're back on a broadway with this beautiful revival of "company." here we go, here's the playbill for it right there. we-- ( cheers and applause ) people may not know, you and i did this show together with the new york philharmonic. >> we certainly did. >> stephen: in 2011. this was, to me, kind of the definitive production right here. ( laughter ) there we are. here we are together. that's you right there, and that young guy right there is me. and-- ( cheers and applause ) most terrifying thing i've ever done. >> yeah, it is-- >> stephen: most terrifying thing i've ever done, you know.
12:25 am
>> it is terrifying. >> stephen: yes. >> you have ten days to absorb a musical, and then you have one hour to be on the stage of the new york philharmonic, because the stagehands are so strict, right? with how much time you can spend on the stage. >> stephen: you've also done it in the west end, and now here you are, doing it again. what's different about how you approach the role, or does it change with each production? >> it does. it changes with the direction. >> stephen: okay. >> and mary ann elliott, who is the brilliant director of this concept, of bobby being female, i'd never worked with her before and i'd wanted to work with her. and it's just her approach with actors, and she is a-- an actors' director. and this is probably my favorite interpretation of joanne, because she's funny. she gets to laugh, you know? and she's not dour-- doo-er? or is it dow-er? >> stephen: you're the legend of broadway-- who am i to say?

( cheers and applause ) and here he is, as a very young man. and i'm curious-- i was lucky enough to interview him a couple of times, to do that, shortly before he died, interviewed him right there. >> i remember that interview. >> stephen: and it was deeply-- though i didn't do much of his work, deeply influential to me. you did six sondheim musicals. and i'm curious, what was it like to work with him? what did you learn from him? >> well, i re-created. i didn't create a role, i recreated. and, it's always intimidating when someone that you deeply respect and are deeply intimidated by, shows up in the rehearsal room, because you just want-- or, i just want approval. i want a validation of my interpretation.
