While promoting Rosewater, Jon Stewart heaped some fulsome praise on his friend and soon-to-former Comedy Central colleague, Stephen Colbert in a recent interview in New York Magazine. Check out the whole interview for some great insight on all things Jon, but here’s the Stephen-related parts:
You helped launch The Colbert Report. Stephen is going to drop the character when he moves to The Late Show, so what will he bring that people haven’t seen?
A raging drug habit.
People have no idea. It’s going to be Breaking Colbert.
I will tune in for that.
Stephen’s talent is very apparent to everybody, but if you’d been to his 50th-birthday party and you saw the love bomb he was surrounded in — I said to my wife, “I will guarantee you this party spawns a thousand arguments on the drive home.” Everybody got in the car that night with their spouse and it was, “Why don’t you love me like people love Stephen?!” Or, “Why can’t you be a kindhearted and good individual like Stephen Colbert!?” It was one of those magical nights, filled with the warmth and affection of friends and family. I just think viewers are really going to enjoy getting to know Stephen.

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.
