Judging from his garish costume, it seems a safe bet to us that comedian Stephen Colbert’s celebrity pickleball event is going to be more of a celebration of clown-assery than it is a promotion of sport and athleticism.
CBS has revealed the roster of players for Pickled, a two-hour celebrity pickleball tournament hosted and produced in part by Stephen Colbert.
Airing Thursday, Nov. 17, from 9 to 11 pm ET (and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+), the “hilarious and cutthroat” pickleball competition will field teams playing each other to benefit the non-profit Comic Relief US… and ultimately win “The Colbert Cup.”
Will Ferrell, Emma Watson, and Dierks Bentley are a few of the names we recognize.
Mercifully, the Tennis Channel chumps didn’t make the cut.
