In The Press – Summer’s Here Edition [Part 2]

Stephen Colbert newsWhen news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub catch them for a post we call, In The Press.

July 4th weekend is here. Stephen and the crew’s two week vacation is halfway done. I know I’ve seen some nice pics on social media from some of Stephen’s crew of their vacations and it looks as if they’re getting away from the stress of the show. That’s a good thing. I hope everyone’s official launch into summer is a good one. Be careful with those fireworks!

In this part deux of Summer’s Here, we have some talks with comedy writers, we have some more talks about comedy writing and then just in case you are still wanting more stuff about writing, BOOM! There it is, just like magic!

In The Press – Summer’s Here Edition [Part 1]

Stephen Colbert newsWhen news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub catch them for a post we call, In The Press.

I cannot believe that summer is here already. Wasn’t yesterday a snow day? Actually here where I am in New England on this lovely sunny first day of summer, it got down to 48F (9C) overnight. That’s New England fer ye.

Now that summer is here, let’s find out what the media is writing about our hero. The last “In The Press” post was Memorial Day and yet there is already so many more stories to report. The media can’t get enough of him. In fact, there are so many stories we will have to have a part two to this Summer’s Edition. I’m thinking “Summer’s Here 2: Electric Boogaloo!” yes? no? maybe?

In fact there are so many stories, they have overflowed above the jump.

Well, tonight’s episode got off to a very intriguing start. Stephen did a “Better Know a Challenger” segment, with a young fellow named Chazz Darling…I mean Jake Rush, who plays a vampire in, well, in life, occasionally when he does role play. Also, Stu Varney’s day out was quite the memorable experience. It would seem he lives inside his studio. Stephen’s guest, Ellen Page is openly Canadian and believes that if Juno had been a little different, it would’ve been much shorter.
