I had no intention of attending this year’s 25th anniversary gala event benefiting Chicago’s Lookingglass Theatre, or “gglasquerade,” held on March 2, 2013 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago, but about a week prior some obstacles preventing me from attending cleared up, and I found myself making arrangements to go. Tickets were not made available until the last minute, and I didn’t have a “date.” I reached out to an old friend, who coincidentally lives close to hotel and was more than excited to see Stephen and attend the gala.

Morgan Lawrence from Blast Magazine was lucky enough to attend the November 6th, 2012 live taping of The Colbert Report Presents “Election 2012: A Nation Votes, Ohio Decides; The Re-Presidenting of America: Who Will Replace Obama? ‘012!”.
If you watched the special live editions of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report last night, you already know that both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert revealed that Barack Obama won reelection to their studio audiences. Stewart told his audience about the win roughly five minutes after MSNBC and CNN called the election, as the Daily Show was in the midst of a recorded field piece starring correspondent Samantha Bee and then had to toss to commercial. There’s wasn’t much lag time, considering.
However, by the time Colbert’s show began at 11:30 pm ET, everyone in the nation knew that Obama had defeated Romney– everyone except the Colbert Report‘s studio audience. Last night on SiriusXM’s political channel POTUS, comedian Pete Dominick host of Stand Up with Pete Dominick on said channel and warm-up comic for the Report, revealed that Colbert purposely kept his audience in the dark about the results. No one was allowed access to the Internet, televisions or their phones upon entering the studio. The idea was that Colbert would get an organic reaction from the crowd once he did let them in on the news. Dominick says at first the audience wasn’t quite sure whether Colbert was serious or joking when he informed them.
