‘Late Show’ Host, Stephen Colbert, Deals With Ruptured Appendix

Late show host, Stephen Colbert

He just had surgery to repair a burst appendix, the host of “The Late Show” revealed.

The comedian posted on Threads on November 27 that they had to cancel their concerts for the week. “I know you’re wondering, ‘Is Steve consuming too much turkey?'” Is the gravy boat about to implode? Truthfully, I’ve just had surgery to repair a burst appendix.

The father of three—Madeleine, Peter, and John—and husband of Evelyn McGee-Colbert, Colbert,59, expressed his gratitude to his family.

“I’m grateful to my doctors for their care and to Evie and the kids for putting up with me,” said the doctor. “Going forward, all emails to my appendix will be handled by my pancreas.”

A ruptured appendix can lead to an infection, as pointed out by Healthline, which states that untreated appendicitis is one possible cause of this condition.

“When this happens, bacteria get released into your abdomen and can cause a serious infection,” the site states, adding that other symptoms include “severe abdominal pain, fever, chills and weakness.”

Colbert, who succeeded David Letterman as host of The Late Show in 2015, has had a rough few months. After testing positive for COVID only last month, he felt compelled to tape the show from the comfort of his own home.

The official account of the show tweeted on October 16 that Stephen will be at home with COVID-19, so “the Late Show will look a little bit different tonight” (he’s alright!). Although Jada Pinkett Smith and Ricky Velez won’t be physically present, the performance will continue remotely via Monologue. Hey, what year is it?

It goes without saying that he felt somewhat let down. “I always want to be able to do the show the audience deserves, but today Covid had other plans,” he posted on Twitter on Oct. “Taking it day by day and I hope we can all see each other tomorrow night.”

In the end, he had to skip the week due to his doctor’s advice. “Taking a break so I can bring you the artisanal talk show that we love to provide,” he wrote beside an Oct. 18 photo of t-shirts and onions. “In the meantime, a heady blend of Paxlovid and onions in my socks (thank you, Fallon) will be rebuilding my immune system.”
