Most late night talk show interviews include celebs telling funny anecdotes or playing silly games, but Stephen Colbert isn't afraid to have a poignant moment on The Late Show!

Joe Biden appeared on Thursday's show in his first television interview since his son's tragic death from brain cancer in May.

The Vice President elaborated on his previous statement that he wasn't sure he had the emotional strength to run for presidency in 2016 — saying that he didn't think anyone should run unless they could give "110 percent" of their heart, soul, energy, and passion to the job!

The 76-year-old then opened up about how he visited a military base and "just lost it" after talking to a soldier who served in Iraq with his son Beau.

We're sure most other late night hosts would get anxious from the lack of audience laughter, but Colbert is proving that it's okay to conduct a raw interview without pre-set jokes.
