Stephen Colbert Unveils His Bold New Look After Makeover

You might even say it's heroic as the talk show host copes with coronavirus confinement boredom.

“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert looked in the mirror Tuesday and didn’t like what he saw. (Watch the clip above.)

So the comedian gave himself a makeover in a new at-home video while his show is suspended during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nothing wrong with a little self-improvement, right? Colbert raided his wife’s makeup kit and went to work.

The result was superheroic.

He emerged looking and sounding somewhat like the dashing Tony Stark aka Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. in the Marvel movies. And he’s ready to fight COVID-19.

“Tony Stark,” Colbert said in re-introducing himself. “What seems to be the problem? Viruses? Is everybody staying at home? That’s step number one. Don’t go out. It’s not just for yourself. It’s for your loved ones.”

Stark, er, Colbert then shared his plan for using tiny robots but he lost us there.

Maybe it’s brilliant? Decide for yourself.
