Dua Lipa Turned the Tables on Stephen Colbert & Interviewed Him, Creating a Truly Profound Moment (Video)

Dua Lipa was a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week, but she turned the tables on the host and interviewed him instead!

The 26-year-old singer was on the show promoting her new Service95 newsletter and its upcoming podcast on Thursday (February 3) in New York City.

Colbert asked Dua if she’d like to interview him and she decided to ask about his faith.

Dua said, “I think something that your viewers really connect with in your comedy and your hosting skills, especially in the past few years, is how open and honest and authentic you are about the role your faith plays in your life. [Do] your faith and your comedy ever overlap, and does one ever win out?”

Stephen‘s response created a truly profound moment.

“Ultimately, us all being mortal, the faith will win out in the end. But I certainly hope when I get to heaven, Jesus has a sense of humor,” Stephen said.

“Laughter keeps you from having fear of it,” he added. “And fear is the the thing that keeps you turning to evil devices to save you from the sadness.”

“If there’s some relationship between my faith and my comedy, it’s that no matter what happens, you are never defeated,” Colbert continued. “You must understand and see this in the light of eternity and find some way to love and laugh with each other.”
