Con­gress­man John Lewis crowd surfs after Col­bert in­ter­view

The Standard Journal - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

NEW YORK (AP) — Civil rights leader and U.S. Rep. John Lewis may be 76, but he’s not too old to crowd surf.

The Ge­or­gia Demo­crat wrapped up an in­ter­view on the Aug. 31 episode of “Late Show with Stephen Col­bert” by wad­ing into a sea of au­di­ence mem­bers who lifted him up and passed him around.

Lewis was part of a crowd surf­ing epi­demic on the show. He was the third guest of the night to crowd surf with Col­bert, fol­low­ing ac­tors Chris­tian Slater and Chris Geere.

Lewis was on the pro­gram to pro­mote his graphic novel series, “March,” which retells of the civil rights move­ment from Lewis’s per­spec­tive.
