Alan Cumming Performs His CBS Series 'Instinct' as Broadway Musical on 'Late Show'!

Alan Cumming stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night (April 18) to talk about founding his new Manhattan club, Club Cumming, and his latest CBS series, Instinct!

“When I was doing Cabaret the musical at Studio 54 and I was doing The Good Wife at the same time, and I thought, ‘I’m never gonna have any fun’ [because] I would never be able to go to a bar because I had to get up so early for filming, so I made the bar happen in my dressing room,” the 53-year-old actor told Stephen.

“We got a big neon sign that said Club Cumming, which now hangs in the real Club Cumming,” Alan continued. “So after that I would do pop-up Club Cumming parties, and after my concerts I would DJ…and then my friend Daniel said, ‘Why don’t we have an actual bar?’”

Stephen then proceeded to point out that Alan is now spending his time on a primetime drama about a former CIA operative and professor lending his expertise to fight crime — but he doesn’t put his singing voice to use on the show.

Quickly after, Alan and Stephen remedy that statement with an impromptu number from the faux Instinct: The Musical – Watch below!

Alan Cumming Says the Spice Girls Are 'Definitely' Reuniting

Alan Cumming stopped by Monday’s (March 26) episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and revealed that he thinks the Spice Girls will reunite.

“I think they are going to [reunite], aren’t they? I think it’s definitely going to happen,” the 53-year-old Instinct star told host Andy.

Alan also shared his craziest memory from working with the ladies on the hit 1997 movie Spice World: “Oh yes, this is a funny story,” Alan said. “I just had such a good time on that film. On my last day, they all wrote things on my tummy, like with a Sharpie.”

“And then I went swimming in London, and I was like, ‘I can’t go into the swimming pool with all this writing all over,’” Alan continued. “So I was in the shower going like this, trying to scrub the Spice Girls’ messages off of my tummy.”

That same evening, Alan stepped out to receive the LGBTQ qFLIX Award in Philadelphia.

Alan Cumming Talks About His Groundbreaking Role in 'Instinct' on 'Late Night'

Alan Cumming hit Seth Meyers‘ couch on Late Night on Tuesday evening (March 13) and revealed why his gay lead character in his new series Instinct is making TV history!

“It’s the first time on a network drama that there’s been a gay character in the leading role,” the 53-year-old actor told Seth. “It’s shocking but it’s great.”

Alan proceeded to expanded on the significance of that: “It’s like the fourth or fifth thing of the characteristics of this person is that he’s gay and married and a happy solid marriage.”

“And actually, what I think is really amazing is that most of the time, especially on network TV when someone is gay, when there’s a gay character it’s like, ‘they’re gay gay gay’ and it’s all about their sexuality and usually in a negative way,” Alan continued. “But the fact that this has a character whose gayness is way down the list of things that are most important about him is a positive thing and also the fact that when you do see his same-sex life it’s in a really positive way and that’s two things I don’t think are represented enough in this country.”

The procedural crime drama Instinct debuts on March 18!
