    I'd put Trevor Noah's voice just slightly under Colbert's.

    I agree with you on Alec. That got old real fast if you ask me.

    Erm that's 90% of comedy.

    I think that leaves just Knock Knock jokes and why did the chicken cross the road...

    What makes them cheap shots and cheap laughs is the target rich environment.

    This is why the media etc. all loves this period in time. The comedy writes itself.

    John Mulaney in his latest routine says "it's like there is a horse loose in a Hospital and we are getting hourly updates!"

    My post was deleted due to “politics”
    That’s ironic because my post was opposing politics but others in this thread...

    I don’t oppose political discussion. It’s just that it music feels like a medium that should be something that doesn’t have to be worried about how another person’s pacifism or gun rights alignments ruin you enjoyment of art. They are polar opposites. We should rejoice in our shared evaluation of art.

    This is one of the reasons why Colbert is my favorite late night host:

    I thought the same thing. I'd be interested in reading more of his letters.

    Looks like Colbert inherited his artistic talents from his mom's side of the family.

    I find it amazing that this is a real letter and not a scene from a movie. I mean in this context, just before departing into the unknown, describing the landscape so vividly and with such beauty is really something. Touching! And if it's not too personal I'd be interested in more of these letters as well!

    By the way, Colbert is also my favorite late night host, I don't watch the show regularly for obvious reasons but he is not that hysterical and he's not afraid to give his opinion.

    I think Colbert may be in trouble (ratings) once Trump is out of office, whenever that may be.

    I don't see Fallon regaining his #1 spot that he had during Colbert first year @ CBS.

    I think you are probably right. I liked his show from the start, but I know I was in the minority. I think he is actually a very good interviewer as well.

    I miss Colbert's "Midnight Confessions".

    Yeah, what happened with that? I was just thinking the other night how he hasn't done it in awhile. That and the Big Furry Hat. Seems to have been replaced with "Meanwhile..."

    I usually turn off before the guests come on, unless there's a guest or musical act I want to see, which is rare and that's when I fast-forward through.

    He was very successful prior to Trump's reign with his prior show, I don't think he'll have any problem.

    Maybe Colbert can get on The Apprentice II in 2025 when he and Trump both need a new gig. :rolleyes:

    I also miss that. I also miss when Colbert talks to God whose often portrayed as an adolescent hipster focused on pop culture. Just thinking of some of the things he's done and said just cracks me up. For instance God playing with a Fidget Spinner. Who thinks of this stuff? The voice is funny as well.

    In my opinion the writers are responsible for 75% of the laughs with Colbert's Harold Lloyd looks and smart aleck pantomime routines and mannerisms completing the ensemble. Probably Colbert's the best at jokingly flirting with the camera and the live audience. Better than Carson IMO.

    Colbert is the best of the bunch and his writers are tops as well. His background in improv helps, I think. Yeah, his jokes can be a little cruel but they're funny, and considering the usual target of those jokes and what that target says about others, it's more than appropriate. His musical guests also usually appeal to me, especially in contrast to who normally appears on Fallon or Kimmel.
