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!”

A Look Back: “The Tumbleweeds”

Colbert News Hub A Look Back Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.

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!
