It’s just like the old saying goes: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again — and maybe get Nancy Pelosi involved.
Stephen Colbert kicked off his second week of live shows Monday night by traveling to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention.
After a psychedelic experience brought on by a bad cheesesteak, the host got down to the task at hand: Donning his “Julius Flickerman” regalia and storming the stage at the Wells Fargo Arena, much as he did a week earlier at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in a well-publicized stunt.
They were similarly unmoved by House Minority Leader Pelosi, who (kinda sorta) advocated on the comedian’s behalf. Still, like a die-hard Bernie bro, Colbert refused to take no for an answer. Eventually, his perseverance paid off with a fleeting yet triumphant moment onstage.
What an example for us all.
