Last night in New York was the Tenth Anniversary Gala for StoryCorps, a nonprofit whose mission is to give people of all backgrounds an opportunity to record their stories (some of the 45,000-plus stories have been heard on NPR’s Morning Edition). To celebrate, Stephen Colbert slapped on a suit, told some jokes, and introduced clips of some of the organization’s most touching stories. Afterward, Vulture was able to talk briefly with Colbert about storytelling, what makes him cry, and what makes him laugh. We even got him to tell a story of his own, sort of.
Esquire Magazine has compiled a photo gallery featuring 80 of the most accomplished men on the planet in honour of their 80th Anniversary. ‘The Life of Man’ features men ranging from the ages of 80 – 1, who were asked what the best advice was that they ever received?

Proudest accomplishment: “Doing what I do for a living and doing it in the city I want.”
In the video of the photo shoot Stephen elaborates on why ‘last Friday’ was pretty good.
