Stephen Colbert is a Catholic, and a superfan of Pope Frankie, the coolest pope since Pope John XXIII. Last night on The Late Show, Colbert and crew poped it up with a new popening for the Tour De Francis (the pope is in New York today).
Colbert is welcoming Frank to town with a short history lesson, and a low-key greeting that "stays true to his humble nature."
Stephen also serenaded the pontiff in hopes of getting him on the show, assuring him (with help from Carole King) that he is a friend the pope can trust. Now that's an offer the pope can't refuse.
