STEPHEN COLBERT: Hey, everybody. We're back with comedian, Ziwe. Now as if Ziwe wasn't enough, you also play Vice President Harris, you played Vice President Harris on "Our Cartoon President" on showtime. As well as Tory Hughes in "The Establishment, and Susan shepherd on hot take on Paramount Plus's "Tooning Out The News," two shows that I executive produced. So there's more connections between the two of us. A Paramount Plus-- it's a mountain of Ziwe.

[LAUGHS]

What's your hook for getting into Kamala Harris vet mode?

- I usually say, Bret Kevin now has not. Because that's just the refrain that I remember her specifically repeating at the time that I was auditioning for the show. And so that's how I get into Kamala mode.

STEPHEN COLBERT: Would you-- would you like to meet her and interview her?

- I would love to interview her. She is-- she would be an iconic guest.

STEPHEN COLBERT: She's a great. She's a fanta-- I've interviewed her, how about four-- four, five times. One thing about her because not all politicians in this way. As you feel like you're actually having a conversation with her.

- Wow. Yeah. She's an icon. She-- I mean, she's an icon.

STEPHEN COLBERT: Is-- what do you want to do next? I mean, your own musical guest every show, and I'm curious whether you actually want to-- whether you want a musical career?

- I am going to pivot to pop star in four to five years. But right now, I'll be a television host.

STEPHEN COLBERT: Do you have any advice for anyone going into an internship out there?

- Don't stop talking.

[LAUGHTER]

It'll never get you in trouble.

[LAUGHTER]

STEPHEN COLBERT: Well, give my best to your fellow intern, John Oliver. I miss him. I wonder whatever happened to that guy. And thank you so much for being here, It was great to meet you again.

- Thank you. I mean, it's a pleasure to meet my tether and talk to him on his show. So this has been awesome.

- Well, the season finale of Ziwe airs Sunday on Showtime. Ziwe, everybody. Thanks so much. We'll be right back.
