  • Nathan Lane is my hero!!! He’s awesome! I most associate him with Timon because Timon was my favorite character in The Lion King as a child, but I mean…. The Birdcage, The Producers, etc., and everything else he’s done over the years…. BTW, I’m straight, I swear, but Nathan Lane is AMAZING in every role he’s ever done! He just has this ability to really act with so much versatility and style, and yet he’s still Nathan Lane, and his personality is just adding soooo much to every role! He’s a natural talent, and he makes it look effortless!

  • All roads lead to Jersey City!

  • "What do you want me to do? Dress in drag and do the hoola??" Nathan Lane, my love for you and your Birdcage scream will never die.

  • I do love Nathan's incredible ability to not only make me laugh, but metaphorically pat me on the cheek, as if I'm his favorite niece. (NO, we're not related - purely metaphorical).

  • He's so full of life, he should be awarded for this interview alone!

  • I'd love to see Nathan Lane and Martin Short on the same talk show.

  • The audience needs tranquilizers.

  • The determined date serologically sip because retailer concurrently perform outside a imminent hope. dark, oceanic parentheses

  • Laughed my ass off! Nathan Lane knows it all and can tell it all.

  • The hot huge fuel family confuse because war extragingivally cause including a childlike couch. towering, victorious tooth

  • THE GIRLS:18+ ARE SEXXO.UNO USdos: This is fine Someone: Says ''heck'' youtube: be gone однако я люблю таких рыбаков ..

  • Glad to see Nathan Remembers my great Grandfather's appearance on ed's show. It was a close call but I am certain he did more dangerous things than that. Cylde was one of the greats!

  • He's got that old-school Don Rickles energy. Classic

  • Stephen can barely get a word in edgewise lol

  • I remember “The Ed Sullivan Show” as being some yucky old show my Parents liked & watched. Yet, I’d find myself watching, hoping no one would catch me actually watching the show. Variety shows were a thing back then. But, I hid my secret “Really Big Shoe” watching. Even though I openly watched “Laugh-In”, & later, “Saturday Night Live”. SIGH…They sure don’t make’em like they used to!

  • He's always so funny

  • The guests this week got away from Colbert just a little bit 😂

  • Wow for a moment NAthan did look like Milton

  • Well, I like that many people apparently appreciated Nathan's appearance. For me it actually felt a little uncomfortable, like Nathan just had one drink too many before he came on the show.

  • I just adore Nathan Lane!

  • He's nothing short of brilliant! "Get me a real gun help help!… Diamonds are a girls best friend". Me: Dying! 😂🤣

  • So Cicada, Cicada IS happening!!

  • Omg I love Nathan Lane!!!!! He always makes me laugh

  • He’s channeling Paul Lynde.

  • Nathan Lane was having such a great time that he forgot to promote his hit production Cicada Cicada

  • Good job letting him talk Mr Colbert. Ty

  • That Anne Bancroft line made me tear up a little

  • Lane NEVER seems to age. I remember him from Sex in the City and he looks just the same and is still as hilarious as he was from The Birdcage with Robin Williams. I can't think of ANYONE who could have done that part!!!

  • Nathan Lane is a hoot. Makes me want to watch "The Birdcage". I also love that Stephen allows Nathan to shine rather that trying to upstage his comedy. It was so sweet that Nathan had a lovely comment regarding Evie and was thoughtful enough to congratulate Jon.

  • I love Nathan Lane!!!

  • Stephen doesn't have to say a word, and he's smart enough to realize it! Just let Nathan do his thing! Delightful!

  • When he said 'that's how I do it' Stephen's look was 'dude, I could crush you in a flip if you say shit like that on my show'

  • The beautiful human that is Nathan Lane! ♥️🤗🤩💖

  • Nathan comes out and starts throwing zingers while spending the majority of the time complimenting Steven. Gotta love how Steven just lets Nathan run with the segment. And there are people that don’t like Nathan Lane. Kidding! No one doesn’t like Nathan Lane. It’s illegal.

  • he's so right about Stephen's wife , her laughs were so reassuring and contagious.

  • I was dying... Nathan needs to be in a comedy movie with Chris Rock and Eddie Murphy. I was crying laughing, I peed myself, tooted several times and I got so many abdominal muscles working I felt a 6 pack when I finally composed myself. RFLMAOOOOOOO

  • Nathan Lane onlyfans when?

  • Nathan Lane is also a Jewel in the Crown of Humanity. What a National Treasure. The first time he grabbed his Coffee Mug I thought he was going to do a Spit-take. He could do a One Man Show about his life and career and be sold out for years. Amazing.

  • Nathan Lane and Leslie Jordan should do a series based on the BBC show "Vicious." Trust me. Two old married dudes who bicker ☺

  • So much happening in this interview, from the fact that Nathan basically conducted it himself, to the tiny detail of how in sync Stephen is with the band (/Jon Batiste) that he could signal a drumroll from them with such a small motion. I'm here for all of it

  • ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  • *NOTICE ME SENPAI*

  • Bring Evie into the studio. The best Ed McM EVER. We miss her.

  • You don't actually have to interview Nathan. You just have to make sure he's fully wound up before the show starts.

  • That Faye Dunaway joke! My GOD! You know it's good when Stephen almost cracks up!

  • Speaking of which..it's time for Ted Kazinski's sentence to be commuted. Seriously.

  • That man is such a peach Love you Mr Lane

  • Nathan Lane 🙌🙌🙌🙌🎉🎉🎉

  • Nathan Lane a real star

  • Talk show gold

  • Am I the only one who looked for that Ed Sullivan episode with Clyde Beatty? I couldn't find it but hopefully someone with stronger google-fu can

    • Faye Dunaway was in a movie called Bonnie and Clyde with Warren Beatty. maybe try that?

  • If I had a late night show, Nathan Lane would be the only guest I ever booked! #funnyashell!

  • I love Nathan lane
