Stephen Colbert is taking CBS to court – it’s baseball court.
The network has a green light Sour pickle, a comedic melon tournament that brings together celebrities from Colbert’s production company Sparta, Funny Or Die, and CBS Studios. The big game, with all-star players to be announced at a later date, will air later this year as a two-hour special event.
As for the unpretentious game, here’s how CBS describes the game: “The most exciting new sport in a generation is a classic American cocktail – mix part tennis, a bit of badminton, hit hitting ping pong, throw a few ibuprofens in there in case, and add a bunch of indulgence. Shake well, then pour yourself a glass of euphoria.”
“I love hosting The Late Showbut at the end of the day – and I’m talking specifically about the hours between 8 and 10 pm in the East – I see Sour pickle as an opportunity to bring many different people together for something playful and unpredictable,” Colbert said in a statement. “And since supply chain troubles delayed the delivery of my Margaritaville™ Frozen Drink, I found myself with some spare time.”
