Stephen Colbert will be taking an extended Thanksgiving break from The Late Show, but for all the wrong reasons.
The host apologetically explained on the show's Instagram that he needed a week away for medical reasons. "I'm sure you’re thinking, 'Turkey overdose, Steve? Gravy boat capsize?' Actually, I'm recovering from surgery for a ruptured appendix," he noted.
Colbert continued, "I’m grateful to my doctors for their care and to [wife] Evie and the kids for putting up with me."
The Daily Show veteran closed by joking, "Going forward, all emails to my appendix will be handled by my pancreas."
