COLBERT+: Late Night Comedian Tests Positive for COVID-19, Says He’s ‘Vaxxed and Boosted’

Late-night comedian Stephen Colbert confirmed Thursday that he has contracted COVID-19 after being “fully vaccinated and boosted,” adding he’s “feeling fine.”

“Yep! I tested positive for Covid, but basically I’m feeling fine- grateful to be vaxxed and boosted. Thank you for the well wishes. This just proves that I will do anything to avoid interviewing Jason Bateman,” confirmed the comedian on Twitter.

“Stephen Colbert has tested positive for Covid 19. Tonight’s show is cancelled. As previously planned, the show will be airing repeats tomorrow through next week. We will return with new episodes on May 2nd,” added his show’s official account.
