The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Introduces World to Monroe, Michigan

Today is the day that you learn all about the quaint town of Monroe in Michigan thanks to a Stephen Colbert, who is getting pretty restless lately.

The YouTube channel for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which premieres on Sept. 8, posted the following 40-minute long video.

At its most basic, the video is much of what we can expect to see this fall with Colbert hosting various guests on his own show.

But, as you will soon see, it’s far more than that. Colbert has been itching to get on with hosting, so he took over a public access show for one magical episode that features all the hot Monroe news you never knew you wanted.

Oh, and there’s Eminem:

“Only in Monroe” is our deep dive into a Michigan town that shines as Colbert’s star guest of note.

Forget the rap icon that appears later in the production, because Monroe is the one that steals the show. has you covered with more information on the town of just over 20,000 residents.

Something tells us that the city will receive quite the boon in interest thanks to a peculiar and entirely hilarious decision by Colbert to take over its public access channel for a spell. 

The website again notes that Monroe is the hometown of General George Armstrong Custer, lending credence to Colbert’s claims.

Now we have another couple of months before Colbert hosts his show on his own stage, but the cameo into the realm of public access promises what should be a long and successful tenure for him on “The Late Show.”

Thanks to the clever ploy, a town like Monroe gets to try on a celebrity’s shoes for a short stint, owning the spotlight normally garnered by major metropolises.
