Stephen honors our neighbor to the North by singing “O Canada,” sort of.
As Stephen referenced earlier this week,The Colbert Report premiered way back on October 17, 2005. Those of us who were familiar with Stephen Colbert on The Daily Show were excited, of course, but little did we know what an impact the show would make on our lives and in our hearts. While we are sad to see the program to be taken off the air in a short while, we are cheered by knowing that Stephen will be moving on to an opportunity for him to be “better known” by a larger viewing audience. And here on the Hub and in other fan forums we can appreciate the friendships that have sprung up as a result of the Colbert Nation making its voice heard.
On behalf of all the Hub staff, Happy Anniversary to the past and present staff and crew of The Colbert Report! Thank you for nine great years!
Here’s something great for your Friday appointment listening, Hubsters! Slate’s David Plotz’s new podcast series “Working” explores the workdays of various kinds of folks. He sagely chose Slate-thusiast Stephen Colbert for his first episode. It’s fantastic to listen to Stephen run down through the entire day from start to finish, and it’s the longest you’ll ever hear Stephen speaking without interruption. Enjoy, and let’s discuss further after the jump.
It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a huge Apple fanboy, but his taking a call from Apple’s head software designer during a product presentation took the audience by surprise:
Forget hosting The Late Show, Stephen Colbert just lined up the gig of a lifetime: Intergalactic Chancellor of Apple.
Well, his exact title is still a work in progress, if Thursday’s iPad event is any evidence. In a very dad-like phone call, Apple’s senior VP of software design Craig Federighi explained to Colbert how the comedian would help the tech company “triple-down” on secrecy — something much needed after Wednesday’s iPad leak.
