Better Know a Guest: August 25 – 28, 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.


Hey there Hubsters! Hopefully you all enjoyed the two-week break from the show and post-Emmy triumph (for me, it means moving back into college for senior year!) It definitely looks like the hosts will have a lot to talk about this first week back.  I suspect we’ll be hearing more about Israel and Gaza, the incidents surrounding the death of Michael Brown and the unrest in Ferguson, the execution of James Foley by ISIS, and continuing drama in the Crimean Peninsula.  Of course, if there’s anything you’d like to see addressed on the show, what guests you’re most excited to hear from this week, and more, let us know in the comments below!

Stephen’s guests this week include two actors, an author, and an artist. Jon’s guests this week include an author and a comedian. Let’s get this short Emmy week started!

Better Know a Guest: January 7 – 10, 2013

The Colbert Report Guest Line Up 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.


Happy New Year Hubsters!

I hope everyone had a fine celebration and I wish you all a joyful, successful, and healthful 2013. May your dreams come true and may our world become a more peaceful place in the year to come.

It’s almost time for our favorite late-night faux-pundits to return. Hallelujah! I figure they’ll definitely focus on the last-minute deal that stopped us from going off the fiscal cliff and the House’s refusal to okay disaster relief for those suffering in the aftermath of Sandy. I do not know how, or if, they will speak about the most terrible, awful, heartbreaking story that occurred during their hiatus: the tragic killing of 18 children and 9 adults in Newtown, CT. I personally felt grateful that they were off when this happened. I do not believe that they could have come in the next day and in any way covered it. Jon, of course, could have been more direct; Stephen’s format and character would have made it harder for him. I also do not know how, or if, they will deal with the recent rape tragedies in India, in which one brutalized woman died from her injuries and another killed herself. An absolute horror.

One bit of new that might be fun for them to mock is French actor Gerard Depardieu’s “defection” from France for tax reasons, and his possible acceptance of Russian citizenship.

I do have my own news: this, and the next couple of BKAGs to come, will be my last, at least for the foreseeable future. I have a very full plate of work that will demand my concentration in the next nine months of so: a film review, two papers (one for a conference and one for publication), and a large-scale research project for a publisher. I also have my job and other freelance. All in all, this makes it impossible for me to write this blog and do the rest without becoming a little frantic. I don’t want to sacrifice quality, and so I am saying goodbye for now. I will still stick around, though, to comment and contribute to the conversation, and perhaps do other small things as I can.

Now to the guests—and Mr. Colbert is beginning the New Year with a bang! (Sorry for the lack of photos; the site won’t let me upload right now.) Continue reading
