Donald Trump vs. Stephen Colbert Over Wacky Right Wing Quotes (see!)

Donald Trump went head-to-head against Stephen Colbert’s former “Comedy Central” character to see who said the wackiest things. Of course, Donald is now a real wacky conservative and Colbert just played one. But their quotes were hard to tell apart. Trump made an appearance on the Late Show last night (Sept. 22) faced off in the contest of who said what? “For years I played an over-the-top, like, you know, conservative character,” said Colbert. “Not as long as you did, but for many years....

Bernie Sanders Is Ok Being Called a Socialist: How Cool Is That? (watch!)

Bernie Sanders, the Independent U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate doesn’t shudder, wince or hide his face when one of his right-wing detractors calls him a “socialist.” He told Stephen Colbert last night, he’s perfectly ok with the label.

Stephen Colbert Monologue Debut: How Do You Rate Him? (video!)

Stephen Colbert kicked off his new “Late Show” gig with a standard late night opening monologue. He certainly had more energy that David Letterman, but will his frenetic, madman style really be enough to set him apart from the crowd? Johnny Carson, and for that matter, his predecessor Jack Paar, set the tone and style for late night interview shows. Their humor was low-key, cool and ironic. ...

President Obama Hits Talk Show Circuit, Stops by Colbert Report (see!)

President Barack Obama proved that a politician could indeed do Stephen Cobert’s job after he dropped in on the Comedy Central talk show host, who was doing a special program from Washington, D.C. last night (Dec. 8). So how’d the president do? Just as Cobert was warming up to do his regular “The Word” feature, Obama entered from stage right. (Or was that left?) He took over the anchor chair and made a slight change to the presentation. Instead of calling it “The Word,” he called the segment “The Decree,” an obvious reference to his recent executive orders, which have raised the ire of Republicans....

Jennifer Lawrence Reveals Her Fear of Failure on ‘Colbert Report’ (watch!)

Jennifer Lawrence was quick witted and funny on the “Colbert Report” last night (Nov. 13), but seemed a little on edge at times as she revealed her inner fear of failure after so much success in the movie business, which includes winning an Oscar. Host Stephen Colbert made much ado about Lawrence’s film resume, although he was so clueless, he had to read off her accomplishments from a sheet of paper. ...

Jon Stewart’s Hilarious Homage to Colleague Stephen Colbert (watch!)

Jon Stewart, the star of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” pays homage to his colleague Stephen Colbert as only he can–hilariously. Colbert will be taking over David Letterman’s seat next year.

When it was canceled, he moved over to “The Daily Show” as one of Stewart’s “correspondents.” ...
Rush Limbaugh was a pioneer of post-truth politics in the media.

‘D’oh! Rush Limbaugh Thinks Stephen Colbert Character is Real!

Stephen Colbert isn’t really a right-wing-bashing liberal in conservative clothing, although he plays one on his Comedy Central television show. Yet right-wing talking head Rush Limbaugh thinks the fat-head skewering character is real. D’oh! On his radio show today, Limbaugh wailed that CBS’s decision to replace David Letterman, no right wing radical, with Colbert is equivalent to declaring “war on the heartland of America.”...

Jon Stewart Returns, Learns Carlos Danger Running for Mayor

Jon Stewart was back in the anchor chair at Comedy Central, after a summer-long stint in the Middle East for a film project. He required a little cultural re-assimilation before catching up on the news. Yes, Carlos Danger really is running for New York City Mayor. John Oliver, who subbed for Stewart while he was off directing the Iranian political feature, “Rosewater,” had his hands full bringing Jon up to speed. First, though, he had to ween Stewart, who had gone native, of his Middle Eastern mannerisms....
