Bonus Features in the ‘Adweek’ Interview with Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert in Adweek

On the heels of the wonderfully-needed recent Colbert interview in Adweek, the magazine has followed up with two additional articles with items that could not be included in the original piece. Stephen discusses having potential sidekicks, plans for his Colbeard, hating being off the air, his ambivalence about sports, and his relief at not having to pretend to be a conservative blowhard anymore. A second article is dedicated to how Jon Stewart is impacting Colbert’s new organization. Enjoy!

Stephen Colbert is featured on the cover of the February 1, 2016 edition of ‘Adweek‘ Magazine. In the special Super Bowl issue, Stephen discusses why ‘The Late Show’ will air live from New York following Super Bowl 50, and not from San Francisco where the match is taking place, what’s in store for the live episode, how the show has changed since its debut last September, if there is pressure to create viral content, and are there any plans to collaborate with James Corden and ‘The Late Late Show’ in the future.

Vanity Fair Video Outtakes – NSFW!

Before the hilarity ensues (trust me, it will), turn the speakers down a bit due to content!  😉

First, the late-night gang gets together to offer Stephen advice for getting comfortable with his new gig at The Late Show, as well as a few of the guys offering some additional “secondary” advice that is presented before him as well.

In this clip, Conan has some very unique advice for him, as he tries to set him up with an interest in acquiring plots of land and real estate in an up and coming area, other than Florida. Ha!

Vanity Fair Magazine Introduces us to ‘The New Faces of Late-Night Television’

In a brilliant article from Vanity Fair magazine’s October issue entitled ‘Why Late-Night Television is Better than Ever’, we get to see what we sometimes secretly crave and want the most – late night talk show hosts genuinely having a great time around one another.  Long gone are the days of the supposed ‘late-night wars’ (or at least we are led to believe the rivalries are non-existent thus far) and through many recent late-night-host transitions, we are seeing more of a comfortable camaraderie amongst the newest scene of night-time legends in the making.

Stephen Colbert Discusses Faith and Comedy on ‘Witness’

“What does anybody want? Not to be alone. I think a performer gets on stage and says the things that are in his mind in his own particular way, to make a connection with the audience so he doesn’t feel so alone. And hopefully the audience feels the same way.”

Gems like the above quote resulted from a wonderful, insightful interview on the program “Witness” with a then-Colbearded Stephen and Fr. Thomas Rosica of the Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation. The interview, which occurred in April of this year, offers a deeper understanding into how Stephen juggles his work as a satirist/comedian with his Catholic faith.

After the jump I highlight a few great quotes from the exchange. Enjoy the vid!

Stephen Colbert’s ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ Interview

Former Daily Show colleague Mo Rocca sat down with Stephen ahead of Tuesday’s premiere at Donor’s Choose headquarters to discuss wide-ranging topics, from the new Late Show guest protocol, to the unfortunate tragedy that afflicted his family, to learning how to conquer feelings of embarrassment. Stephen’s ease with his friend Mo is evident, and also makes for a better interview. Check it out:

On the show’s site, you can see a few extra clips where Stephen discusses his lovely wife Evie, and be treated to a little singing from one of Stephen’s favorite musicals, Sunday in the Park with George. Love Stephen and Mo together! They make a great combo. I hope Mo brings his bowtie to the Late Show sometime.
