In honour of World AIDS Day, Stephen Colbert joined a whole host of celebrities at New York’s Carnegie Hall to celebrate ten years of “The One Campaign” and “(RED), two AIDS-fighting groups co-founded by U2 frontman, Bono.

Stephen Colbert was on hand to honour Bill and Melinda Gates, saying:

“I wasn’t sure who they were. I had to look them up on Bing. It turns out One was inspired by a conversation between Bill Gates and Bono about how to better inform Americans about extreme poverty around the world. If not for One, the only way that Americans would hear about poverty would be from Bernie Sanders’ speeches.”

“He said the Gates didn’t only just write a check. Bill Gates helped ‘professionalize’ the organization. Bill Gates brought his brain power, his insights, his business acumen, his understanding of the role commerce would play in wiping out poverty.”

Colbert urged governments to continue to work together to assist the organization soon “because Donald Trump,” he said, pausing as the audience laughed, “if he’s elected, all bets are off. Just tear up your history books and live in a cage because it’s every man for himself.”

Bono is a launching an all-star campaign featuring “once-in-a-lifetime experiences” that can be won after donating at least $10 to his organization (RED), which raises funds to fight AIDS. The campaign kicks off Tuesday to coincide with World AIDS Day, which is December 1st.

[…] Jimmy Kimmel is dedicating his Tuesday late-night show to the campaign. He and Olivia Wilde will host (SHOPATHON), a tongue-in-check play off of home shopping, and the special episode will feature celebrity guests like Tom Brady, who is offering one donor a chance to learn how to pass a football, and Shaquille O’Neal, who will take a photo with a winner for his or her 2016 holiday card.

Bono won’t appear on the special episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” which airs on ABC and tapes in Hollywood. Instead, he will be in New York celebrating the 10-year anniversary of (RED) at Carnegie Hall with Vice President Joe Biden, the Edge, Stephen Colbert, Miley Cyrus, Trevor Noah and others.

Stephen Colbert to Host the 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors

Stephen Colbert of CBS’s THE LATE SHOW returns to host THE 38TH ANNUAL KENNEDY CENTER HONORS, to be broadcast Tuesday, December 29 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This will be Colbert’s second year hosting the special, having done so in 2014.

In a star-studded celebration on the Kennedy Center Opera House stage, Carole King, George Lucas, Rita Moreno, Seiji Ozawa and Cicely Tyson will be saluted by great performers from Hollywood and the arts capitals of the world. Seated with President and Mrs. Obama, the Honorees will accept the thanks of their peers and fans through performances and heartfelt tributes.

The President and Mrs. Obama will receive the Honorees, members of the Artists Committee who nominate them, and the Kennedy Center Board of Trustees at the White House prior to the gala performance taping on Monday, Dec. 6. The 2015 Kennedy Center Honors Gala concludes with a supper dance in the Grand Foyer.

The Honors recipients are recognized for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts – whether in dance, music, theater, opera, motion pictures or television – and are selected by the Center’s Board of Trustees. The primary criterion in the selection process is excellence. The Honors are not designated by art form or category of artistic achievement; over the years, the selection process has produced a balance among the various arts and artistic disciplines.
