Stephen Colbert Organizes 600 Person Balloon-Filled Celebration in Union Square for Late Show Taping

Comedian Stephen Colbert showed up this early morning on the steps of Union Square along with over 600 willing participants all waving balloons for planned taping of a Late Show segment.

Despite it being a “super secret” taping, Colbert was still able to draw out over 600 people to the area this morning. This certainly seems like as good a reason as any to wake up early on a Sunday! Besides whipping the crowd into a balloon-crazed frenzy, he also addressed everyone on a megaphone from the back of a truck.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert premiers on September 8th, 2015.
