Stephen Colbert Wrote the Perfect ‘Late Show’ Theme Song: Watch

What goes into a perfect Late Show theme song? Just ask Stephen Colbert, who obviously has the art form down to a science—at least as far as comedic effect is concerned.

While sitting down at his electric piano, Colbert held a hilariously entertaining brainstorming session, where he knocked out a theme song for his upcoming show. Because confidence is key, especially when appearing on live television, Colbert demonstrated he has no shortage of it in his theme song. “The show will be so great/ It’ll be a great success,” he sings. “You can watch it on TV/ On the station…Columbia Broadcasting System/ Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes.”

If that sounds promising, just listen to how strong his opening is: “What time is it? It’s late. / What show is it? It’s show. / My name’s Stephen Colbert / From my head down to my feet…where I keep my toe!”

Will this really be the new Late Show theme song?
