Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert addressed his Jewish viewers and made references to Hanukkah and Passover while joking about “Shark Week” on Monday night.

The host of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on CBS first expressed warm wishes to Jewish fans of Shark Week by saying “Mazal teeth!” and then celebrated the first night of the annual, week-long TV programming block by lighting a “fin-orah,” which was a menorah that had a shark on it.

Later on in his monologue Colbert began singing a rendition of a popular Hanukkah song that included lyrics about President Donald Trump and his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen.

Shark Week is an week-long TV programming event created by the Discovery Channel that features shark-based shows. Since 2010, it has been the longest-running cable television programming event in history.
