Tonight promises a solid show: a former President, a hilarious comedian and an international arena-filling rock band! And it’s only Tuesday. Seriously, who cares about Tuesday? It’s like the non-day of the week. So, here’s to Stephen Colbert – bringing Tuesday back!
The previously mentioned former-president Bill Clinton served two terms, from 1993 to 2001. With a presidency spanning almost the entire decade and bookended by George Bushes, Bill Clinton is synonymous with American politics in the 1990s. Clinton is known for his work in pushing social issues in a resistant time (being dubbed the first President to publicly advocate gay rights), as well as being the President during the popularity boom of the World Wide Web. And although he’s already served his maximum two terms, he’s still got another shot at napping on that cozy White House sofa, as first gentleman to the potential 2016 candidate, Hillary Clinton!
Get ready to watch Billy Eichner yell at Stephen Colbert because he loves the way Stay Human played him in or because he hates the colour of Stephen’s desk. Billy Eichner is known for his extremely intense comedic style – be it frantically and aggressively interviewing people on the street about trivial entertainment stories or as his Parks and Recreation or Difficult People characters (who are essentially a amped up/toned-down version of Billy, respectively). Either way, it’s sure to be a fun interview – whomever ends up leading the conversation.
Florence and the Machine
Tonight brags a performance from indie rock band Florence and the Machine. They are known for their mix of big, pounding arena rock sound with indie rock composition style, as well as Florence Welch’s powerful Grace Slick-esque vocals. From London, England, Florence and the Machine have been rocking out since 2007, releasing three full-length albums along the way, starting with their multi-platinum hit Lungs in 2009. Their most recent release, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (released May 29 2015) has reached #1 across the world – and you’ll likely hear a track from it tonight!
Check them out tonight, a measly Tuesday, on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, airing 11:35 et/pt on Global!
