‘Late Show’ Host Stephen Colbert Will Be Publishing His Shocking Confessions This September

‘Midnight Confessions’, a popular recurring segment on CBS’s ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’, will become a book to be published by Simon & Schuster on September 5th. According to the publisher, the book will include some of Colbert’s favorite confessions as well as selected audience submissions. In addition, both print and audio versions will be released.


This regular segment showcases features the host sitting behind a makeshift confessional screen while making pleas for misdeeds such as “I take hotel shampoo bottles… When I’m not staying at a hotel.” In a statement written by Colbert himself, the host wishes the “confessions were made up.”




This release will be Colbert’s sixth book, following previous titles such as I Am America (And So Can You!) and America Again: Re-Becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t.
