he looks kind of like George Lucas with the beard and the flannel....
Minus the goitre!
the video was a bit dull toward the end, but it's a start. i definitely see echoes of early letterman.
I am looking forward to this. He will not disappoint.
They're doing an interesting podcast that you can find on the site. They're apparently already writing a lot, though they realize it'll all be irrelevant in three months.
Hmm, I dunno how I feel about this first video. Seemed a bit too much like his Colbert Report schtick, which I thought he was dropping. He could still be totally different on the actual show, though.
A few funny moments (Homeless Sea Captain!), but I don't think I could ever warm up to the guy. I couldn't stand the Colbert report, and like the above poster said, there's too much of that persona coming through here.
Loved it! Thanks for posting.
I absolutely hope that he keeps some of his persona/humor from the Colbert Report. Having a wider audience be able to see the brilliance that was done over the last decade would be amazing.
We won't be discovering a new Colbert with a different sense of humor. He won't be the political blowhard from the Report, but we're gonna get much of the same Stephen Colbert that got him the Late Night gig in first place. I'm getting excited!
Apparently, Dr. John and Allen Toussaint were too busy? I'm really not sure that I'm into this guy? "They Might Be Giants", in my opinion, would make for a GREAT house band, as they can deliver it all!
Yeah, I see your point. So he'll stop pretending to be a conservative blowhard but will keep up the smug sarcasm. I don't know, I'm curious to see how that plays out in a regular show, and not one of these scripted bits. As of right now I'm skeptical.
I don't see anything about him as "smug". His sarcasm is usually directly on point and biting. His speech at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner was about the best thing I've ever seen.
Thought it'd be good to start a brand new thread instead of continuing the old Letterman thread.
For those interested, Stephen has started a podcast series focusing on the behind the scenes process on how they are creating the new show.
In case you're like me and can only really ever see how this is a theater when looking at renovation pics:
I swear I never once noticed those balcony exit doors before. They couldn't have been blocked.
On Tuesday Mr. Colbert came to Monroe, Michigan to take over hosting duties of the local public-access program Only in Monroe for a day (yes, it's apparently a real show). He had Eminem on as a guest.
Thanks for these. I hope the new team gives the place a fresh face lift while still keeping the integrity of the original design and architecture. It's a historic building (not just because of Dave) so I hope it's treated that way.
I can finally put two and two together. With it like this, It looks almost like it did for the Ed Sullivan Show!
Coming up next Tuesday! Any thoughts before it starts?
