Stephen Colbert reunited with fellow Daily Show veteran Samantha Bee on Friday’s Late Show, with the two late-night hosts admitting that while the 2016 presidents race has offered a surplus of humorous material, they’re looking forward to life after Election Day.
“It’s a double-edged sword because, on one hand, you get to make great jokes about Donald Trump, but on the other, he could be president,” Colbert said.
Bee added that while this election season has provided “a buffet of wonderful things to draw upon to make a comedy show,” she stressed, “I want it to be over so badly.”
While Bee’s late-night show Full Frontal won’t air on Election Day itself, she is already planning the next night’s post-election episode. “We’ll either have a fun musical guest or the musicians from the Titanic. We’ll see,” Bee said.
The Toronto-born Bee also revealed that this year’s election marks the first time she and her husband, fellow former Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones, would be able to vote since they now have dual citizenship.
