Greeting and salutations, Hubsters! With so much ugliness going on in the world, tonight’s episode gave us a brief escape into fantasy land. Back on August 8th, The Hub reported that Stephen went incognito to Comic-Con in San Diego. Tonight, we finally had the honor to watch the hilarious results of Stephen’s Comic-Con adventure. Stephen geeked-out Tolkien style for just a bit with his guest, Viggo Mortensen. I am sure Stephen and the crew had as much fun creating this episode as we did watching it.

September 2nd, 2014: The Taping ReporT!

The Colbert Report taping report Hello, everyone! It’s me, Stephensmile64, back again with another taping reporT. So yeah, I know what you’re all thinking? “Stephensmile64, didn’t you just attend a taping?” Why yes, I did. So unfortunately, I did not attend this show but a friend of a friend of mine did. I actually got the tickets for he and three of his friends and the following day, he graciously sent me a brief email report.

He attended the September 2, 2014 show and this was his first taping ever. He had a wonderful time and quickly sent me some of the Q&A. For him, these questions and answers were totally new, so he was really excited about hearing them. He also stated that Stephen was very open and sincere. So, without further ado …

Better Know a Guest: September 15 – 18, 2014

Better Know a Guest 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.

Hello, Colbert News Hub! Anna here, your new Better-Know-a-Guest-er. I’ve been lurking around the site for about a month now, and it’s been fun to watch the Colbert Report with more knowledge about who these interviewees are. I do too much research on the news anyway (usually just to procrastinate doing laundry, or my actual job), and I figured it’s time to put that habit to some use. So hi.

This week in America, we’re seeing continued confusion over the ISIS situation. As disgusting stories of torture and beheading continue to come out, the Obama administration has declared war, sort of, promising increased airstrikes but not wanting to exactly call it a war or to exactly call it Syria. Meanwhile, today (Sunday) in Iowa, Senator Tom Harkin is about to hold his final Iowa Steak Fry after 37 years. The event will be headlined by Bill and Hillary Clinton, who are
expected to sort-of-but-not-officially campaign. In stupid news, the week saw members of the Palin family get into a fistfight at something called a “snowmobile party”, the return of crazy South Carolina congressman Mark Sanford with an epic Facebook rant about his ex-wife, and an Olive Garden investor complaining in a 294-page Powerpoint presentation that the company serves too many bread sticks, too much salad, expensive take out bags, and not enough salt in its pasta water.

Stephen’s guests this week are an actress/showrunner, a young Metal band, an actor, and a filmmaker; Jon hosts a documentarian, two actors, and (as of Sunday) a mystery guest.

Let us know who you’re excited for and what you’d like to see covered this week!

A Look Back — Stephen on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Stephen Colbert A Look Back Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate select clips from the overwhelmingly voluminous video catalog and the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.

Way back in April 2004 then Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss his brushes (or lack thereof) with Candidate Greatness on the ’04 presidential campaign trail. We all remember his *one* question with Howard Dean, right? He also talks about his wife’s discomfort with a NSFW comedic piece he did on Kimmel’s Comedy Central show Crank Yankers. Stephen ends the interview with an edited piece about editing a piece, channeling tyrannical bits of what soon would become his character just a year and a half later. Check it out:

Particularly poignant is when Stephen first gets onstage, he looks around and says, “This feels good. I’ve got to get me a gig like this.” I think you just did, sir.

Stephen Colbert at the 24th Fandango Benefit Gala

It felt good to be back home for our 24th Fandango Benefit Gala, which took place September 13th. Camp’s grounds were transformed into a festive carnival that featured cocktails, amazing snacks from a variety of food trucks, photo booths and a silent auction. The rain held out until our guests moved into Sports & Rec for the live auction, which was masterfully hosted by Stephen Colbert. Leading up to the auction, CEO Jimmy Canton welcomed guests and shared updates from the year, and camper Liam offered a glimpse of the healing power of Camp through his experiences climbing the tower and at Project Bliss. The auction was spirited, as guests bid on sought after lots that included an America’s Cup Yacht experience, lunch with Ryan Reynolds, tickets to opening night of The Elephant Man on Broadway with a post-performance meet and greet with star Bradley Cooper and tickets to the premiere taping when Stephen Colbert takes over The Late Show. Following the auction, guests were treated to the Fandango performance, starring Hole in the Wall campers and celebrity friends including Christopher Walken. The evening closed with dinner and dancing to music by Business Time.
