In the second episode of ‘The Late Show Podcast‘, Stephen Colbert is accompanied by Paul Dinello and Matt Lapin, both writers and supervising producers.
The Second City has released a great video from 1992 featuring “The Trifecta” (Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, and Paul Dinello) showing off their famous tumbling skills in a sketch called “The Tumbleweeds.”
Of course, this piece was resurrected (and according to Stephen, promptly retired) on Amy’s July 2006 appearance on The Colbert Report.
Get ready for some serious spandex, and an impressive display of strength and flexibility from both Stephen and Paul. Also loved the piling of all the chairs on Amy. What a silly, wonderful, hilarious team they make. Enjoy the video!
In this month’s catch up we have interviews with Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, Kevin Bartini, Meredith Scardino and Aasif Mandvi, new projects from David Javerbaum and Samantha Bee, a ‘Goodfellas’ panel hosted by Jon Stewart, more honours for Neil deGrasse Tyson and a clip from the Second City archives featuring Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert.
The fine folks at Second City have decided to help soothe us from Colbert withdrawal by releasing footage of Stephen’s last night at the theatre on May 22, 1994. Introduced by Steve Carell, who effusively praised Stephen’s work and said “I think he’s put up some of the best scenes done here…he’s an exceptional improvisor with an exceptional reference level.” (“And he has funny ears!” yelled Amy Sedaris, helpfully, from off-stage.) Stephen, joined by Paul Dinello on guitar, and other notable troupe members such as Mitch Rouse and David Razowksy were on hand to perform songs from various revues during Stephen’s tenure.
I really want to hear the whole “Fish Tank” song. They put a lot of feeling into that one. After the jump there is another great SC video for us to “look back” on.
