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.
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.
Last night, Stephen Colbert was a guest on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” where he spoke about his recent Emmy win, and attending the Primetime Emmy Awards with his wife Evie and 12 year old son John. Stephen also revealed that he will feature as “Falcon” on an alternate cover for the Captain America in November, and spoke about being invited to the set of “The Hobbit” by Peter Jackson and scaring the cast and crew with his joy and enthusiasm.
Michael Ausiello from TV Line talks to Stephen Colbert on the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet about the end of “The Colbert Report” and taking over for the “Late Show” from David Letterman in 2015.
Once upon a time, Stephen Colbert, the lovely and hilarious host of our favorite political talk show, The Colbert Report, graciously invited our bosstone to be on his show. During their interview, he asked Tavi if we might maybe think about considering having him do an Ask a Grown sometime. Our answer, of course, was, “Hell yes, you wonderful man!!”
Now, we’ve cashed in on that generous offer to bring you this video containing SC’s wise advice about misogynist jokes, boyfriend-based dilemmas, and how to tell if someone thinks you’re cool. And, Stephen, we’ll make that last one easy for you: WE THINK YOU’RE *EXTRAORDINARILY* COOL.

Stephen Colbert recently interviewed Neil Patrick Harris for Issue #7 of Flatt Magazine, where the Broadway star reveals that “The next big thing I want to do is a big variety show. I want to be the next Ed Sullivan. That’s my game plan.” The multi-talented actor also spoke about his Tony Award winning role in the Broadway revival of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”, and reflects back on his time in “How I Met Your Mother”.
