10:35 pm
captioning sponsored by cbs >> welcome stephen colbert! >> stephen: hey! welcome to the late show, everybody." thank you! >> stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! >> stephen: friday! friday! that's it! >> stephen! stephehe stephen! stephen! ( chee and applause ) >> stephen: hey! wooo! thanks so much, everybody. thank you, so much. thanks, everybody. welcome to "the late show." i'm stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) or am i?! i am. ( laughter ) and the only reason i bring it up at all is you can never be
10:36 pm
these days. it happens to everyone, even corporations. you guys know the company pepperidge farm? i would be upset if didn't. well, as you know, they farm more than pepperidge. they also make delicious cookies. and now they're saying those cookies are victims of identity theft. last week, they sued the supermarket chain trader joe's for selling a type of cookie they claim looks too much like their popular milanos. i know. it's a big story. ( laughter ) i love milanos. they've got so many kinds. you got the originals, mint milanos, dark chocolate milanos, the raspberry milanos, cool ranch, blazin' buffallo milanos, alyssa milanos. now, i realize i talk a lot about food on the show, but food is an important subject. after all, if you are what you
10:37 pm
of paper they put between cheese slices to try to slow you down. nice try. not even a speed bump, as far as i'm concerned. but back to pepperidge farm. i don't get how trader joes could be ripping off the milano. because the milano is basically two cookoks with chocolate inn the middle. i'm pretty sure that's just a sandwich. by that logic, pepperidge farm should be suing subway-- who, at this point, i'm sure has a pretty good legal team. ( laughter ) ( applause ) plus--. ( cheers and applause ) plus, the trader joe's version is called "trader joe's crispy cookies," so it's not like they stole the idea of milano's had of pretending to be from italy. so i don't know which side is
10:38 pm
the only way for me to know for sure is if these cookie companies send me a lot of them. and i promise to be an impartial judge. i will keep an open mind and an open mouth. the reason i asked is this has worked for me before. because the last time i mentioned oreos on the show, the o'ero company sent me 150 packages. we built me a small throne made of them. plus-- and this is absolutely true. this right here, they sent me a dedicated oro phone-- if we could get a close-up-- right there. with a preprogrammed button in the middle that i push and automatically calls oreo headquarters if we ever run out. this is absolutely true. ( cheers and applause ) and just-- a quick reminder to the staff-- don't try calling 9-1-1 on this thing, unless you're dying of not enough oreos. i'll give you that back there6
10:39 pm
it back to him. so pepperidge farm and trader joes, the bar is high. oreos sent me a phone. maybe you guys can send me a smartphone that tracks when my mouth needs cookies. here's how it works-- if i can fit the phonene in my m mth. there are no cookies in there. send me cookies! and we should probably have that cleaned before i put that in my mouth. ( laughter ) that was-- i don't-- that was actually-- ( applause ) it occurred to me-- that was hand handed to me by a stagehand right before i walked ontage, and it certainly tastedaltier than i wanted. ( laughter ) we have a delicious, a delicious show for you tonight. first up, i'll be talking with the creator and star of the braodway smash hit, "hamilton," lin-manuel miranda. ( cheers and applause ) you saw that. >> jon: yes. >> stephen: amazing.
10:40 pm
>tephen: kids, remember, "hamilton" is the only show on broadway that gets you a credit in a.p. history. then, from the new film "sisters" and "the mindy project" i'll be joined by ike barinholtz. ( cheers and applause ) good chicago boy. good chicago boy. ike actually directed me in an episode of "the mindy p pject." and i'll ask him what it's like to dish with stjphen colbert cause i understand she's kind of handy on the set. and we'll have a performance by sharon jones & the dap-kings. it's a holiday song. they've got a new holiday album. they will be playing a hanukkah song tonight that is so soulful, it's going too make youou challah. that right there, that's jon batiste and stay human. say hi, everybody.
10:41 pm
they're about to do the thing with the things before the other thing, but before they do those things, one more thing. adidas has unveiled plans for a new factory where robots make running shoes. now, if they'll just make a robot that will run for me. >> tonight, stephen womans playwright lin-manuel miranda. actor ikik barinholtz. and a musical performance by sharon jones & the dap-kings. featuring jon batiste and stay human.
10:42 pm
show with stephen colbert"! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: thanks, everybody. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen! stephen!n! stephen! stephen! >> stephen: oh, yeah? yeah. ( cheers and applause ) thank you, everybody. thanks, everybody. man, you guys sound great tonight, amazing. >> jon: thank you. >> stephen: have you got any plans for this weekend, jon? >> jon: i'm goioi to g g some rest and -- >> wow, you live a wild, jazz life. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: anything else? no? >> stephen:?>> jon: i might go to a musical. >> stephen: really? "hamilton"? >> jon: i saw it, it's great. >> stephen: isn't it incredible.
10:43 pm
good research, too. >> stephen: it is. that's what i look for in my musicals, excellent research. >> stephen: yeah. >> stephen: i didn't have to read the bible because i saw "jesus christ superstar." >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: i'm very excited for him to come out here a little bit later. i want to take a moment to say how much i like the opening credits of the show. i want you to know, they were created by a wonderful argentinian director with the absolutely perfect argentinian name of fernando-- wait for it-- livschitz, of the buenos aires livschitz. in the run-up to the show, i stumbled on a wonderful tilt shift video of new york he made called "scales," which he shot in, like, two days with a handheld camera and no permits. so don't tell the cops. so, i said, "get me livschitz!"
10:44 pm
he was a gentle, soft-spoken, wonderful guy, who has none. i think he thought i was some sort of jimmy kimmel prank. but eventually we worked it out, and the next thing you know, fernando was here e the city, standing on ledges 40 stories up, hanging out of helicoptets, to make our opening credits. and he had a lot of extra material, because our credits are only, like, 30-something seconds. how long are our credits, jon? >> jon: 46.8 seconds. >> stephen: that's pretty precise. >> jon: yeah, we play it every night. >> stephen: for the rest of your life, young man. for the rest of your life. anyway, with all that extra footage, fernando has created an extended two-minute, seventeen- second film, scored by jon batiste and stay human, with the full-length version of our opening song. so feel free to sing along to our official lyrics: it's the late show and it's coming right t it's the late show
10:45 pm
the late show late and-- we're working on it. to see these full extended credits go to colbertlateshow.com right now. and by "right now" i mean after finishing this show, and then watching james cordon. and before the year is out, i want to o ke sure to properly acknowledge all the designers and artists who transformed this theater, before the show ever started, starting with a shout-out to the man who designed our beautiful set, mr. jim fenhagen. didn't he do an incredible job? it's an amazing, versatile set. of course, jim fenhagen is no stranger to people who watch tv.v. he designed both sets for "the colbert report" as well as sets for "the daily show," jon oliver, and "cbs ts morning." you name it. he designed it. as long as it's one of the things i just named. ( laughter ) of course, jim couldn't have done it without his right-hand man, senior set designer larry hartman and the set shop
10:46 pm
i'd alal like to thank everyone responsible for the amazing transformation of thth ed sullivan theater. the talented carpenters and technical crew here who pulled f a three-month miracle, including architects neil tucker and ojay obinani, builders charlie ciccarelli and tommy miriello. and the folks at bravo media, who designed the digital projection system up on our dome. and, of cocose, i need tohink everybody at cbs especially my close friend and hot yoga instructor, les moonves, for cutting the checks to make it happen. i'll pay you back, les, as soon as we find "ed sullivan's gold." point is, it takes a lot of people to put "the late show" together every night. and what all these people have in common is tremendous creativity. and if you ask me, the most important thing you can bring to your job is creativity. and donuts. ( laughter ) people love it when you bring donuts.
10:47 pm
it's creativity. and nobody values creativity more than the tech titans of silicon valley. they try to get the most out of their employees by providing office spaces communal play areas, a ball pit, 24-7 food, and by removing all clocks a door handles. ( laughter ) but even i have to question the latest silicon valley workplace trend. according to "rolling stone," tech execs are now taking "regular doses of acid, which have becece the creativity enhancer of f oice, which explains why last week, the google doodle was spiders crawling on your face. $ laughter ) ( applause ) now, when you think of l.s.d., you might not think "strong work ethic." but this is something called microdosing, which involves taking about one-tenth of the normal recreational dose. and how many licks of an l.s.d. tab is that?
10:48 pm
everybody saw the owl, right? that wasn't just me? one expert recommends:, of course, that's much easierf your usual daily routine involves an hour inin the ball pit. i, for one, am appalled by this glorification of drug use. so here's my advice-- you don't need some illegal, mind-altering substance to be creative everyday. you just need legal mind- altering substances. for instance, i use coffee. i take it with c cam and sugar. and by "cream"m" mean bourbon, and by "sugar" i mean xanax. ( laughter ) i can work forever! we'll be right back with the
10:49 pm
lin-manuel miranda. ahhhh! correct, i have a life mate. is that consequential? mmm..ehh with whom are you cocounicating? jake, from planet state farm. jake, from planet state farm at o three hundred hours? state your identity. it is jake, from planet state farm, home of discount double check. describe your apparel "jake from planet state farm" uh, khakis... khakis...explain. a dull earthly garment covering male extremities. sounds most appropriate. mm hm save mass quantities, even att0300 hours. get to a better state. this is the one place we're not afraid to fail. some of these experiments may not work.

"hamilton--" and this is no surprise to you-- completely
10:54 pm
>> thank you very much. >> stephen: have any of you seen it? ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: it's hard to get tickets. you might be a good guy to ask. could you get us 400 tickets to "hamilton"? >> look under your chairs! if i had that oprah power, i would dodo it. >> stephen: you grew up as, like, a theater kid. you loved musicals growing up, right? >> yes, yes. >> stephen: for me i went and saw it and i went eye didn't really know what to expect. i heard good things. my first reaction was this is very good. this is very interesting. i wonder how long they can sustain this. and then you go oh, this is actually quite magnificent. and then two hours later, i'm going, "why am i crying over alexander hamilton?" is that a common reaction? >> it is a common reaction. i think a lot of people think it's going to be sort of very clever, and they're going to be lots of knowing winks, but alexander hamilton had this really full and tragic american life. >> stephen: here in new york. >> here in new york city. and he's kind of the new york founding father.
10:55 pm
now that hamilton's going to come off the 10 dollar bill? >> i don't think he is. >> stephen: really? the plan was to take him off by 2017. do you think you singlehandedly have kept him on the bill? >> i don't think i have. >> stephen: i think you have. honest to god, up until your music, who talked about alexander hamilton? people thought he was a president, but he was never a president. >> no, he was just a guy on the 10. but, you know, people h he always underestimated alexander hamilton. i picture the ghost of hamilton being like, "i'm not coming off that money. i have more things to say." >> stephen: he invented the money. >> he created our financial system. like, one guy created our financial system. >> stephen: it's not just learning about hamilton, but you're seeing new york has this amazing colonial history. you don't think we're living in a colonial town. i grew up in charleston, south carolina, which is like colonial under glass. you're not allowed to change anything. but new york is always making history because of people like
10:56 pm
what was amazing about write it it, you know, i'm a born and bred new yorker and i love new york but i didn't have to go very far. my first musical was about washington heights-- hey! and there's lots of stuff-- i mean, fort tyron park where where she made his last stance before he bounced with his troops is right uptown. his first headquarters is on 162nd street, where aaron burr lived fair year. he married the owner of that house, elijah jamle, when he was like, 60. he took all her money and bounced. >> >> stephen: he was a gigolo? >> she was a very notorious lady. she married him for his notoriety. he was famous for having shot home boy. ( laughter ). >> stephen: as his friends called him. >> as his friends called thim. he used to walk around and say, "my friend alexander hamilton, who i shot." >> stephen: did it bother him for the rest of his life? >> yeah, he was sort of a haunted dude for the rest of his life.
10:57 pm
mexico and declare himself emperor. there might be a sequel in the works. i mean, he has this whole crazy other life. but, yeah, he married this lady on 162nd, like, sort of bilked her for all her money and then, like, fled to europe. >> stephen: one of the amazing songs to me is the room where it happened. and that's burr, wanting to be in the room where a deal is being cut between hamilton and jefferson and madison, right? i do have that right? >> yes, which sounds so boring, doesn't it? but-- >> stephen: they're trying to figure out where the banks go and the capitol goes. >> hamilton basically said we can trade away the capital of the united states to be down near you guys in virginia if you pass my debt plan, if you find the doats voes to pass my financial plan. which sounds super dry -- >> you wrote a broadway show about creating a financial plan for the united states. >> yeah. yeah. and it swings, baby, it swings.
10:58 pm
i just want to say, you, sir, have got some huevos rancheros. it takes balls to write this kind of musical. one of my favorite characters is lafayette, and one of the things that's amazing, hits you in the face with the history of new york, you started this thing in the public theater so you go in and see someone playing lafayette and how important he was to the revolutionary cause and you walk out on to lafayette street in new york city. >> and you can't help b b sing it-- lafayette the fun thing we did donetsk with lafayette is he kind of struggling with the language at the beginning of act one and at the end of act one he's a commander and has the fastest rap in the show. i call it the "police academy ruled." remember the little lady in the, "police academy" movies. she'd say, "please go." and then, "freeze circ." that's kind of w wt we did with lafayette. he goes, "i don't speak your language." and then, "i'm taking this horse
10:59 pm
i'm just stealing from "police academy." >> stephen: the same actor who place lafayette plays jefferson. what's his name. >> daveed diggs, a force of nature. >> stephen: there is rap battles between hamilton andnd jefferson in front of washington trying to determine things like do they support paris? do they pass a debt plan? we have a little clip air, small clip of what that's like to watch these rap battles ?eet in virginia we plant seeds in the ground. we create. you just want to move our money around. this financial plan is an outrageous demand and there are too many damn pages for any man to understand. >> thomas, that was a real nic declaration. welcome to the present. we're running a real nation. would you like to join us or stay mad doing whatever the hell it is you do in monticello. a civics lesson from slaver. hey, neighbor, your debts are paid because you don't pay for labor. we plant seeds in the south. we create. keep ranting. we know who's really doing the
11:00 pm
( cheers and applause ) >> his slaves. his slaves. >> stephen: you talk about slaves, exactly. now, again, this is, like, nothing i have ever seen. and it's beautiful and it's really moving. did you have this kind of experience? what was the thing that you saw when you were younger that completely blew you away and you said, "i have to do that." >> it was a couple of things. the first musical i ever saw on broadway-- we department have money for a ton of musicalsls i was a cast album guy. my mom used to blast "man of la mancha" and "camelot." so. they found genovere >> stephen: i am don quixote, the lord ofula mawrcha. >> my destiny calls, and i go. yes i'm sarchle. i follow my master till the end. >> stephen: we should take it on the road. >> let's go. this thing is ready to go. then "les mis" was the first one
11:01 pm
effect it had on my parents, actually. they brought home that cast album and every time they played "bring him home" my mom started crying and i think that's what was responsible for me writing musicals is the effect it had on my family. "phantom" was the second musical about an ugly songwriter who wants to get girls to notice him. and i was like, "i know all about that. i'm on the cums of puberty. this phantom's got some good ideas." ( laughter ). >> stephen: if you could stick around fair little bit more? >> yes. >> stephen: stick around. we'll be right back with more lin-manuel miranda. ( applause ) fact. when emergency room doctors choose an otc pain reliever for their patients muscle, back and joint pain. the medicine in advil is their #1 choice. nothing is stronger on tough pain than advil. relief doesn't get any better than this.
