The comedian stopped by Michigan public-access cable TV show, "Only in Monroe," on Wednesday to sit in as host. Not only that, Colbert had a sit-down chat with Michigan native Eminem.
After introducing the rapper as "a local Michigander who is making a name for himself in the competitive world of music," Colbert quizzed him on his knowledge of songs by fellow "Michigander" Bob Seger. Eminem knew only a hand full of songs, but watching him sing "Old Time Rock and Roll" is just priceless.
Michelle Bowman and Kaye Lani Rae Rafko Wilson, the hosts of the cable show, typically cover local events and interview people from the United Way and the Red Cross.
Together, Eminem and Colbert covered a range of topics in the segment. Safe to say it was quite different than the typical "Only in Monroe" local segment.
"I'm so grateful to the people of Monroe, Michigan and the whole crew at MPACT Studios," Colbert said. "I'd especially like to thank local performer Marshall Mathers -that man is poised for a breakout. He just needs a good stage name. I'm thinking 'MarshMat.'"
"The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" premieres on Sept. 8 on CBS.
