Lin-Manuel Miranda Reveals Funny 'Hamilton' UK Audience Response on 'Late Show'!

Lin-Manuel Miranda hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show last night (October 16) and dished about bringing his hit musical Hamilton to London!

The 38-year-old entertainer revealed the particular parts of his hit Broadway show that get laughs in London where they don’t in the United States.

“They are super hung-up about sex, they giggle at sex stuff,” Lin expressed.

Lin said a line in the song “Wait For It” about “keeping the bed warm while her husband is away” had “never gotten a reaction in the U.S. before” – but “when they sing that in London, people are like, ‘Wooo. It’s super Eric Idle, wink, wink, nudge, nudge,’” he added. “It’s really funny.”

Lin also read an excerpt from his book “Gmorning, Gnight!” that helps him cope with the loss of Anthony Bourdain – Watch the interview below!
