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! I don’t know about you, but I badly need my Late Night fix this week. We’ve got loads of depressing news to deal with – panic over Ebola, ISIS torturing and killing hostages, creepy and confusing news from North Korea as people theorize over the disappearance of Kim Jong Un. But on the positive, there are talks between North and South Korea (we don’t know what about), and Kim Jong Un is at least out of sight (maybe in a cheese coma somewhere). And, Cheerios put out an adorable ad telling the story of a gay couple and their adopted daughter. It airs in Canada. “Stephen” will hate it.
Stephen’s guests this week are two authors, an actress, and a musician. Jon’s are an author, a pundit, the former Secretary of Defense, and an actor. Let us know which stories you hope to see covered this week, and which guests you’re most looking forward to!
Over on Capitol Hill, Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert taped a segment for his show Friday wherein he’s seen stealing a bust of Abraham Lincoln from a congressman’s office before escaping in a roll-away garbage bin.
A source who was there for the filming tells Mediaite the congressman who has his bust stolen is Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.). Colbert is aided in the skit by outgoing Congressman Jack Kingston.
