The Late Show: Malala Yousafzai shows Stephen Colbert a card trick
Malala Yousafzai joined Stephen Colbert on Friday night’s episode of The Late Show. In addition to promoting the documentary that chronicles her heroic stand against the Taliban in 2012, the 18-year-old discussed her continuous efforts to advocate for women’s education around the world and even performed some magic for Stephen Colbert.
Colbert asked the Nobel Peace Prize winner: “What do you do for fun?”
“Well, I’m lucky that I have two little brothers. And we just fight all the time,” Yousafzai told him.
Yousafzai is also a fan of card tricks and after seeing Colbert do a few of his own, asked the host to pick a number — eventually showing him her own sleight of hand. In the process, she also managed to take a quick comedic jab at the host.

“So this really is about reading [minds]. And I know what’s going on in your mind,” Yousafzai told Colbert.
Colbert said there wasn’t much happening in his mind, setting up Yousafzai perfectly.
“I can see. I haven’t heard anything yet,” she told the host.
