Better Know a Guest: August 25 – 28, 2014

Better Know a Guest Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.


Hey there Hubsters! Hopefully you all enjoyed the two-week break from the show and post-Emmy triumph (for me, it means moving back into college for senior year!) It definitely looks like the hosts will have a lot to talk about this first week back.  I suspect we’ll be hearing more about Israel and Gaza, the incidents surrounding the death of Michael Brown and the unrest in Ferguson, the execution of James Foley by ISIS, and continuing drama in the Crimean Peninsula.  Of course, if there’s anything you’d like to see addressed on the show, what guests you’re most excited to hear from this week, and more, let us know in the comments below!

Stephen’s guests this week include two actors, an author, and an artist. Jon’s guests this week include an author and a comedian. Let’s get this short Emmy week started!
