Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week
Hey there Hubsters! With another week of shows on the way, it’s time for this week’s “Better Know a Guest”! Even though our favorite shows go on break every weekend, everyone knows that the news never does. Based on some of the guests, it looks like we’ll hear about education policy, the controversy surrounding Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, and child immigrants. Of course, there’s a lot more time on the show than just the interviews, so let us know what events you hope will be covered, as well as your favorite guests, in the comments below!
Stephen’s guests this week include a musician, a band, an actor, and a news reporter.
Jon’s guests this week are an author, a news reporter, and two actresses.
As we reported yesterday, Stephen Colbert appeared at San Diego Comic Con to moderate “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” panel, where he opened by delivering a hilarious and heartwarming speech about his relationship with J.R.R. Tolkein’s novels and they big screen adaptation by Peter Jackson., before addressing the panel featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Graham McTavish, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens.
The fabulous folks over at OneRing.net have tracked down the complete video from the event, minus the teaser trailer which has been removed from the video.
Stephen Colbert, with a little help from his youngest son John, is currently moderating “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” panel at San Diego Comic Con in his full Laketown costume!!
Stephen Colbert surprised the crowd at Comic-Con by taking the stage in costume to host a panel for Peter Jackson‘s “Hobbit” films. Chris Hardwick had been hosting the panel, but told the crowd he had to give way to something much better.
The crowd quickly turned from disappointed to ecstatic, as Colbert appeared first in video form and then on-stage dressed as a a lake-town spy, the same role he has for his cameo in the film.
“I cant believe I get to do this,” Colbert said in the video, before taking the stage. Colbert is an ardent fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s work, and introduced the panel by making jokes about his own geekdom and the excess of Jackson’s work.
If you have been stressing about getting tickets to the final tapings of The Colbert Report, uber talented programmer Jordan Leaman is here to help!
Jordan recently created CC Ticket Notifier, a new method for notifying people about ticket availability for both ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’. This new method utilises an app called PushBullet, which is capable of sending instant notifications – it only takes a matter of seconds – to any iOS or Android device, windows desktop or via the PushBullet extension for Google Chrome and Firefox.
When a user signs up to this free service, they receive an instant notification to any of these devices, as soon as tickets become available. When the notification is received, users only need to click on the notification to be redirected immediately to the ticket page.
If you do not wish to go through the hassle of fiddling with another app, the service can also send email notifications, however email notifications are a little bit slower than the instant PushBullet notifications.
Stephen Colbert returned to Capitol Hill on Friday to film an up coming installment of “Better Know a District”, featuring Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH). Clad in fencing attire, Colbert declared that he is now a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
As Mediate reports, “Fudge practiced fencing in high school, hence Colbert’s attire.”
