Even though "Stephen Colbert" the host, actor, and comedian is only leaving us for a brief bit of time -- he'll take over hosting 'The Late Show' late next year -- "Stephen Colbert" the 'Colbert Report'-created character left us last night, when the Comedy Central talk show ended its nine-year run. Colbert's final episode was weird, marvelous, and marvelously weird, ending with a massive, star-studded sing-a-long that included crooners like Big Bird, Jeff Daniels, Cyndi Lauper, James Franco, and more more more.
What does America love? Yard sales! What else does it love? Stephen Colbert! You can see where this is going, right? A beautiful, messy combination of the departing 'Colbert Report' host and a lot of seemingly priceless junk.
Both ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Hobbit’ franchises will come to an end in the next few weeks, and given Stephen Colbert’s unabashed love for all things Tolkien, we’ve seen a great deal of cross-promotion. The latest might be the most impressive yet however, as Colbert interviews none other than the dragon Smaug himself, live on the set!
Stephen Colbert has already begun making the final rounds of ‘The Colbert Report’ in preparation for his new CBS ‘Late Show’ hosting gig, but don’t expect David Letterman to vacate the chair just yet. The longest-running late-night host has officially set a departure date for May 2015, bringing an end to ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ as we know it.
"Stephen, you've been taking a lot of shots at my job, I decided I'm going to go ahead and take a shot at yours." 'The Colbert Report' host Stephen Colbert has been teasing his biggest show ever for awhile now, including a stopover in Washington, D.C. and a long-form chat with President Barack Obama, but even he can't possibly have foreseen how that event would turn out. Essentially, it resulted in the talk show host losing his job...to President Obama, who swept on to stage and hijacked the show from an aghast -- but totally willing -- Colbert, only to put his own spin on what it means to host a political chat show. Does Colbert have something to worry about? We vote yes.
‘Colbert Report’ host Stephen Colbert likes to be entertained when he goes to the movies—if that involves a lot of stuff getting blown up, all the better—and if said entertainment is served up with a heaping side of “thinking stuff,” well, he doesn’t really know what to do with that. On last night’s ‘Report,’ Colbert hosted ‘Interstellar’ director Christopher Nolan, who has a knack for making Colbert think and get excited about the blowing up stuff. Why, Colbert wondered, can’t Nolan just be satisfied with making entertaining stuff? Why must he make us think?
We've known for some time now that 'The Colbert Report' would say goodbye as Stephen moves on to bigger and better things at CBS' 'Late Show,' but we at last have a departure point. Comedy Central has officially scheduled the last 'Colbert Report' for mid December, but when can we run screaming at the gates to say goodbye?
America's most patriotic newsman and late night host, Stephen Colbert's interests tend to run quite firmly to the red, white, and blue, so it should come as little surprise that the funny man is obsessed with Marvel's own Captain America. But he's not just run-of-the-mill, "oh, I like comic books" obsessed -- he's obsessed enough to land his very own Captain America cover, which he shared with 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers last night.
Pretty much everything you need to know about the Michael Fassbender-starring 'Frank' is contained in the above video. The offbeat Sundance pick is about a musical dreamer who joins up with a hip band -- The Soronprfbs -- and is intrigued by their nutty leader (Frank, played by Fassbender), a genius who insists on wearing a giant fake head all the time. He's...a little strange.
Stephen Colbert takes issues with a lot of things on 'The Colbert Report' -- old people making new friends, the Second Amendment, and graphics that aren't blatantly American enough. The funnyman is also permanently on edge when it comes to the possibility that Hillary Clinton will run for president and her constant name-dropping, especially as it litters her new book, 'Hard Choices.' It's just egregious! How can she possibly have so many friends? And when does she find the time to hang out with all of them?
