A video clip from February 2022 of Dua Lipa interviewing Stephen Colbert on The Late Show has recently gone viral on TikTok. In the sincere conversation, Lipa asks Colbert how he integrates his Catholic faith as a comedian and host.

Though the interview originally aired over a year ago, shortened versions have gained millions of views on TikTok in recent weeks. Users are praising the respectful dialogue as Lipa and Colbert find common ground while discussing faith, comedy, and humanity.

In the clip, Lipa notes that viewers connect with the “open and honest” way Colbert discusses religion, asking him, “Does your faith and your comedy ever overlap?” Colbert responds thoughtfully, explaining he hopes Jesus has a sense of humor. He reflects on how comedy helps us “laugh about” sadness rather than be defeated by it.

Colbert ties this to his Christian faith, saying “love and sacrifice” are related. He aims to “love and laugh” with others despite hardships, stating, “You are never defeated and you must see this in the light of eternity.”

The clip has resonated on TikTok as users praise the thoughtful discussion. By sincerely exploring their differing views, Lipa and Colbert modeled having an open, non-judgmental conversation on a sensitive topic.

This viral moment demonstrates a desire for more nuanced, compassionate discourse in media. The interview offers hope that mutual understanding is possible if we approach important issues with empathy.
