On Sunday, June 13, Uzo Aduba and John Benjamin Hickey will become Cohen's first first in-studio guests since the pandemic began in March 2020. Cohen returned to the studio, nicknamed "the clubhouse," last fall. Variety reports that the WWHL audience will be reduced to 20 people, down from the usual 36, to allow for social distancing. All audience members will also have to show that they were vaccinated. Cohen may still, however, interview guests remotely. “I can’t wait to welcome back my gang of 20 cocktail companions!” Cohen said in a statement. “Also — throwing a party for one every night was starting to get extremely depressing.” Watch What Happens Live's return with a studio audience will happen one night before Stephen Colbert welcomes his first full Late Show audience at the Ed Sullivan Theater since the pandemic began.
