The 69th annual Emmy Awards are right around the corner and that means it’s about time we see some promos with CBS’ host Stephen Colbert. Taking the baton from last year’s host Jimmy Kimmel, two short promos were released with signature Colbert humor.
The first (watch above) has Colbert, a nine-time Emmy winner himself, joking about how much hacking has been happening as of late and how he has kept this year’s Emmy winners in a safe — along with his assistant. From the safe, we hear the desperate murmurs of his trapped assistant wanting to be freed as he says, “Only a couple more weeks!”
The second promo is short and sweet and features Colbert wondering the whereabouts of his tuxedo only to reveal it is under his clothing — but with no pants. Watch the video below.
The Primetime Emmys will air on CBS on September 17.
