This is not a drinking song the Colbert Nation wants to sing.
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! This is set to be a very entertaining week of shows. As news goes here in America, we are finally getting over the midterms and it has been a surprisingly quiet week. My favorite bits of news this week have been science news – the Food and Drug administration has approved the first genetically modified potato for public consumption, and researchers in North Carolina have attached electronic backpacks to roaches to control their movements so that they can find people calling for help after natural disasters.
Stephen’s guests this week are a talk show host, a fashion designer, a mathematician, and an actress. Jon’s are a musician, an illustrator, a UN ambassador, two actors, and a journalist. Let us know who you’re excited to hear from this week, and what stories you hope to see covered!
On the Season 1 finale of “Last Week Tonight” John Oliver covered a news story about a company which has constructed a “salmon cannon” to fire salmon over a damn wall to help them on their way up stream to spawn.
Naturally John and the crew constructed their very own “salmon cannon”, but instead of firing the ‘stupid fish that doesn’t know how rivers work’ up stream, he fired salmon into the face of just about every television personality he knows, from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, David Letterman, Wanda Sykes, Tom Hanks and even poor old Homer Simpson and R2D2 took walloping.
