Stephen Colbert: Hungry for Power Games on Late Show sketch

Posted on

CBS

Stephen Colbert kept things political on Tuesday night’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, but with a twist. The late-night host donned his best blue wig to impersonated Stanley Tucci’s Caesar Flickerman as part of a new Late Show segment: The Hungry for Power Games.

“Welcome to the Hungry for Power Games,” Colbert yelled, before showing photos of all 23 people who hope to run for president in 2016. He then bid farewell to the fallen so far — in this case, former Texas governor Rick Perry, who dropped out of contention over the weekend.

“As much as I’m going to miss Rick Perry,” Colbert said, “I think I’m going to miss my jokes about his smart-guy glasses even more.”

Watch below, assuming the odds are in your favor.
