Emmy Awards host Stephen Colbert started the night off with a bang and a fabulous song-and-dance number complete with scantily clad Offred-inspired Handmaid’s Tale dancers, Chance the Rapper and several This Is Us theories.
Colbert launched into the show with a truly on-point zeitgeisty performance. He was joined onstage by a bevy of handmaids (interestingly, both male and female) who traded in their robes for lingerie rompers but kept their modest white wings.
After The Late Show star struck his final pose, he immediately launched into a string of zingers on everything from the slew of apps available (keep an eye out for something Colbert calls Uber Eyeball) to Billy Eichner’s phone etiquette (poor at best) to yet another theory on how Jack Pearson will meet his ultimate demise. Spoiler alert: It just may be bad clams.
Things are just getting started and we’re loving it!
