Ask a Grown Man: Stephen Colbert

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.

Earlier this month ‘The Colbert Reports’ co-executive producer Meredith Bennett and head writer Opus Moreschi traveled to Norway to participate in ‘Rapport fra The Colbert Report’, moderated by Anders Giæver at the Nordic Media Festival, where they spoke about “how they create the satire which has become a political power factor in American society, what the DNA of the show is, and why the basic strategy of ‘The Colbert Report’ is always: ‘Make sure the money goes into the funny’”.

After taking a quick selfie with Dave, Stephen read the Top 10 he submitted back in 1997, entitled ‘The Top 10 Cocktails for Santa’.
