The Late Show With Stephen Colbert returns to the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York June 14 with a full, vaccinated audience.
The show has gone more than a year, with 205 episodes, without a live audience amid the pandemic. Sixteen of the 205 episodes have been filmed live, with no spectators.
“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.”
Guests will be required to show proof of being fully vaccinated prior to entering the theater. Face masks will be optional.
Colbert, Chris Licht, Tom Purcell and Jon Stewart are the executive producers of The Late Show.
