Late Show host Stephen Colbert explained to his audience Louis C.K. would not be attending due to sexual harassment allegations.
“For those of you tuning in to see my interview with Louis C.K. tonight, I have some bad news. Then I have some really bad news. Louis cancelled his appearance here tonight because The New York Times broke this story today: Five women are accusing Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct.”
He added: “When reached for comment, Jesus said, ‘bla-bla-bla-bla-bla, I don’t want to hear about it. I was a big fan!’”
Colbert is a long-standing friend of Louis C.K., having worked with him as writers on The Dana Carvey Show in the ’90s.
“Now these are disturbing allegations and it’s just the latest in an avalanche of allegations against powerful, prominent men — Harvey Weinstein, Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, Kevin Spacey,” he continued. “And a lot of men look at this behaviour and they feel like there’s nothing they can do. Well, last night, one man stepped up to ‘not do it,’ country music star and soul patch safe space Keith Urban.”
And with that he detoured into music parody referencing Urban’s new song “Female.”
