Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.
“Now’s the time to say goodbye . . . Good night. Good night.”
Yes, today is my final BKAG, at least for the time being. I’ll still stick around to comment and support, and also continue to do some “special reporting” when something Stephen-related happens in New York City. I’m sad, but I know that right now it is the best thing for me.
Mr. Colbert has been smokin’ for the past few weeks, really making the most of the madness out there in Congress, in the media, and in our society. We’ve been blessed with several WORDS, which I’ve enjoyed immensely, as well as some fantastic guests. I expect the fabulousness to continue as we move into February.
And so, without more ado: to the days ahead! One note: though I wanted to make this a good final post, I will not be doing Jon’s guests. I was nearly done, went to leave the page after having saved the drafts SEVERAL TIMES, and lost everything on Stephen’s Thursday show as well as all I’d done on The Daily Show. I simply don’t have the heart or the time to recreate it all. I’m so sorry. Talk about going out with a whimper….
