STEPHEN COLBERT’S MIDNIGHT CONFESSIONS to Be Published by Simon & Schuster This Fall

Midnight ConfessionsNEW YORK, April 14―Simon & Schuster will publish a book and audio edition based on Stephen Colbert’s popular “Midnight Confessions” segment from “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” it was announced today.

The book will include Colbert’s favorite confessions from the recurring segment, in which the late-night host enters a confessional to seek private forgiveness from his audience. The book will also include confessions from viewers who have submitted their own midnight confessions via Twitter.

“I wish I could say that all of these confessions were made up,” said Colbert.

“Each of these confessions is a comic gem, and a window into our collective private shame,” said Jonathan Karp, the publisher of Simon & Schuster. “We are grateful to Stephen Colbert and the writers of ‘The Late Show’ for providing such entertaining absolution for our sins.”

Stephen Colbert’s Midnight Confessions will go on sale September 5, 2017.
