Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate select clips from the overwhelmingly voluminous video catalog and the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.
Way back in April 2004 then Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss his brushes (or lack thereof) with Candidate Greatness on the ’04 presidential campaign trail. We all remember his *one* question with Howard Dean, right? He also talks about his wife’s discomfort with a NSFW comedic piece he did on Kimmel’s Comedy Central show Crank Yankers. Stephen ends the interview with an edited piece about editing a piece, channeling tyrannical bits of what soon would become his character just a year and a half later. Check it out:
Particularly poignant is when Stephen first gets onstage, he looks around and says, “This feels good. I’ve got to get me a gig like this.” I think you just did, sir.
