The late show with Stephen Colbert featured a parody of Apple TV+'s hit series Severance, which he claimed was a compilation of his own deleted scenes from the program this week.
Colbert claimed that his show is easily one of the finest dystopian workplace sci-fi mystery black comedy psychological thrillers he has ever seen.
Severance is a strange sci-fi drama centered on Mark (Adam Scott) who agrees to have his work and home lives surgically separated. He leads a group of office workers at Lumon Industries on a risky journey to discover the truth about their jobs.
Colbert praised the show, but joked that his only scenes are missing. "For some reason, all of my scenes were left on the cutting room floor,," he said. But thanks to The Late Show, the missing footage has been discovered.
Colbert (or Stephen C.) interacts with Mark, Lumon floor manager Milchick (Tramell Tillman) and macrodata refiner Irving (John Turturro).
Colbert says he is so happy to be with you guys here and working at Lululemon.
Milchick responds, Lumon, and Colbert responds, Namaste.
Colbert discovers that his outieor self outside of work is The Offices Steve Carell (given his initials) and that Irving must be Dwight. He also gets caught by Milchick stealing paper clips from the supply closet and endures some time in the Break Room. He also steals Irving's reward, choosing Smash Mouths All Star as the song for them to dance to.
Severance was first launched on Apple TV+ in February and was renewed for a second season in April. From its inaugural run, the series received 14 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series.
Dan Erickson's production and writing are starring Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, Jen Tullock, Dichen Lachman, Michael Chernus, Christopher Walken, and Patricia Arquette.
Endeavor Content and Scott produce the film, as well as Erickson, Mark Friedman, Chris Black, Andrew Colville, and the trio of Ben Stiller, Nicky Weinstock, and Jackie Cohn for Red Hour Productions.
On Paramount+, you may stream The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
