Online news sources were buzzing earlier today with a new article from the New York Times featuring Mr. Wonderful entitled ‘Stephen Colbert, the Late Night Hope’. The article touches base on many of the topics we have already read recently through other sources and media outlets, though provides some additional eye-candy with exterior and interior views of the newly renovated Ed Sullivan Theatre in which haven’t been seen before now. And what we imagined is true, “she’s a beaut, Clark!”
In this month’s catch we have interviews with Jon Batiste and Jon Stewart, new humour pieces from Frank Lesser, Brian Stack is featured in a new documentary, Amy Sedaris is back on television, ticket details for performance by Daniel Kibblesmith and Jon Batiste, and Jon Stewart gets in the ring at WWE SummerSlam.
With only a week left until September 8th, Late Show promotion is popping up everywhere. As we try to keep up with everything that’s coming out, here is the news from August!
One last time …
In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly (Issue #1375), Stephen Colbert talks to Ray Rahman about the first time he met Jon Stewart, what it was like working with Jon at ‘The Daily Show’, making each other laugh, and what Jon is really like away from the cameras.
Jon Stewart will host his final episode of ‘The Daily Show’ tonight 11/10c on Comedy Central.
