Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert go way back.
Both alumni of Chicago comedy icon Second City, the pair landed jobs at The Daily Show based on one brilliant sketch created for The Dana Carvey Show.
Colbert came up with “Waiters who are nauseated by food,” based on his hungover days waiting tables, while Carell spun “Podiatrists who are nauseated by feet,” without either of them knowing about the other’s bit. And it got them both hired.
On The Late Show Thursday, the comedy stars took a trip down memory lane to this defining moment in their careers, and around 3:30 in the clip above, they re-enacted the best elements of the sketch.
That is, they pretended to vomit a bunch.
“Do you still enjoy the fake vomit?” asks Colbert.
“I was just starting to taste it a little bit,” says Carell.
