Colbert, who was returning the favor by being on the show after Conan O'Brien previously appeared on The Late Show last month, made quite the entrance by strutting onstage with a harpoon he found backstage.

Fans of Colbert's show will recall his trip to Russia for "Russia Week," which aired for a week in July. A notable segment followed Colbert as he investigated the origins of what he dubbed "the Pee Pee Tape." The tape in question allegedly shows President Donald Trump watching prostitutes urinate on a bed as described in the now-infamous Trump dossier released by BuzzFeed in January. In July, the show aired a Cribs-style clip of Colbert touring the presidential suite at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow where the activities allegedly took place.

Stephen Colbert Recalls Being Followed While Filming ' Late Show ' in Russia He told Conan O'Brien on Monday that his trip to the country was "a little spooky.

After telling Colbert that it was a pleasure to have him on the show (he joked that the other late-night hosts "are assholes"), he asked about Colbert's trip. "[It was] a little spooky," he recalled, explaining that he wanted to travel to the country specifically to learn more about possible Russian involvement in the election, and of course, the infamous tape. Conan quipped, "We used to have classier scandals: Teapot Dome and Watergate. And now we have Pee Pee Tape."

Explaining that he had "to give the people what they want," Colbert decided to rent a room at the Ritz-Carlton to investigate further. "I went over there and I looked at it, and it's totally believable," Colbert joked.

When asked why the alleged tape was believable, Colbert said that he was warned that he would be under surveillance during his stay. "They said, just know that they're going to see you constantly. So I was naked all the time, just buck-ass naked doing downward-facing dog all the time," he joked. The late-night host also explained how he found wires behind the mirror in the presidential suite, the room Trump allegedly stayed in.

"We were followed everywhere we went," he recalled, explaining that agents would make clear he knew who they were. "We were followed by the Russians and we were followed by Americans, like American intelligence was following us around. For reasons I can't begin to tell you - why clown boy here had to be followed," he added, referring to himself.

Conan at the Apollo will continue Tuesday with guests Keegan-Michael Key and Jon Dore on TBS.

Stephen Colbert presses Ben Affleck on Harvey Weinstein, his own groping claim .
Ben Affleck came on The Late Show Thursday night to plug Justice League but found himself in the hot seat. What began with light banter about the actor’s role as Batman in the new film and the forthcoming 20th anniversary of Good Will Hunting soon turned to the environment of sexual harassment in Hollywood, as host Stephen Colbert grilled Affleck on Harvey Weinstein and the actor’s own alleged sexual misconduct. “This is a comedy show, correct?” Affleck laughed as Colbert brought up Weinstein, now a pariah of the industry after decades of sexual harassment and assault claims came to light.
