Hubster Anais has sent us this wonderful “Taping ReporT” of her trip to the October 1st taping of “The Colbert Report”.
On November 7th, 2013, I was one of the lucky members of the audience that got to see Stephen Colbert and the writers of The Colbert Report converse at The Town Hall in NYC. I’ve attended a number of other “conversations” with Stephen, but of course, once is never enough!
There have been a number of very well written articles about the event, namely from Entertainment Weekly and Splitsider. I recommend you read those to get an idea of some of the things that were discussed; both articles are rich with content and quotes. So, enjoy!
However, as great as those articles were, they weren’t able to capture everything that went on. So, that’s what I am here for!! (Contain your excitement, please)!!
StephenSmile64 will have more tidbits from the “Behind the Scenes at ‘The Colbert Report’” panel discussion at the New York Comedy Festival coming soon, but for now Splitsider’s Elise Czajkowski and Entertainment Weekly’s Shirley Li bring you some of the best quotes from the event, including details on network-enforced sponsorship, the logistics of making the show, the inspiration for the set design, what’s under the C-desk and the lowdown on character breaks.
How is everyone? This is Karenatasha, your roving New York City reporter, come to give you the lowdown on a fun late night writing panel held at the New York Television Festival on October 26th. Hosted by former SNL cast member Rachel Dratch, the lively discussion focused on politics, the writers’ backgrounds, and the workings of their respective shows.
