Stephen Colbert sends Larry Wilmore alcohol after Nightly Show cancellation
Larry Wilmore may be losing a TV show, but he’s gaining something else in return: a lot of alcohol. The Late Show host Stephen Colbert followed Samantha Bee’s lead Wednesday, sending his former co-worker quite a few small bottles of liquor.
During Tuesday’s show, the comedian addressed Comedy Central’s decision to cancel The Nightly Show, while enjoying some wine sent by his former Daily Show counterpart Bee. Colbert joined in on the fun, as Wilmore showed on Twitter, posting a picture of himself sitting at a table covered in alcohol bottles and writing, “Thanks @StephenAtHome and @colbertlateshow for all the tiny bottles of booze!”
In January 2015, The Nightly Show took over the post-Daily Show spot, which had previously been occupied by The Colbert Report, after Colbert left to host CBS’ Late Show. The last episode of The Nightly Show will air on Thursday.
