Larry Wilmore Takes Over 'The Late Show' In Gloriously Goofy Moment

"It's because I'm black, isn't it?"

Larry Wilmore, former host of the canceled “Nightly Show,” reappeared Thursday with a really plum gig: doing the monologue on “The Late Show.”

He launched into his routine with a dig at a Donald Trump speech ― “I haven’t seen that many angry white people since they canceled a Coldplay concert.”

But Wilmore got off his best line when Colbert, a fellow Comedy Central alum, interrupted Wilmore and said, “This is my show, Larry. Why are you doing the monologue?”

Watch the clip above for Wilmore’s perfect response.
