Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate select clips from the overwhelmingly voluminous video catalog and the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.
Way back in April 2004 then Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss his brushes (or lack thereof) with Candidate Greatness on the ’04 presidential campaign trail. We all remember his *one* question with Howard Dean, right? He also talks about his wife’s discomfort with a NSFW comedic piece he did on Kimmel’s Comedy Central show Crank Yankers. Stephen ends the interview with an edited piece about editing a piece, channeling tyrannical bits of what soon would become his character just a year and a half later. Check it out:
Particularly poignant is when Stephen first gets onstage, he looks around and says, “This feels good. I’ve got to get me a gig like this.” I think you just did, sir.
When news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub find them for a post we call, In The Press.
Now that the kids are back in school hopefully y’all have time to catch up on the latest involving our hero and his colleagues. In this edition, more late night news, Howard Kurtz is back, Jon Stewart’s film and Stephen gets blowback from his Emmy Acceptance Speech.
In a phone interview with Deadline, CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler said Corden was picked because, among other qualifications, he and David Letterman’s replacement Stephen Colbert “complement each other.” Where Colbert is known for his razor wit, Corden seduces with cuddliness, though he’s also very sharp. Corden has a gift for physical comedy, a star’s grace in a clown’s body, that gets audiences giddy.
Stephen Colbert guest stars in Season 1, Episode 7 of “BoJack Horseman”. In the episode, entitled “Say Anything”, Stephen provides the voice of Mr. Witherspoon, a bull frog and the boss of Princess Carolyn, an anthropomorphic pink Persian cat voiced by Amy Sedaris.
Episode Synopsis: “BoJack sabotages himself with an epic bender; Princess Carolyn’s agency merges with another.”
Following his appearance “Late Night with Seth Meyers” this past Tuesday, Stephen Colbert recorded a special introduction just for Gwen Stefani, after she botched the pronunciation “Colbert” at this years Emmy Awards when announcing “The Colbert Report” as the winner of the ‘Outstanding Variety Series’ category.
But we shouldn’t be so hard on poor Gwen. As Adam Levine (her co-presenter) revealed on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday night, that he had given a nervous Gwen some advice on how to pronounce “Colbert” before going on stage to present the Emmy Award.
While on the promotional trails for their latest projects, Jon Stewart (‘Rosewater’) and Amy Sedaris (‘BoJack Horseman’) discuss their good friend Stephen Colbert’s move to hosting the ‘Late Show’ in 2015, his and his character’s fear of bears, and how Amy found out about his three-legged pet rabbit.
And be sure to grab yourself a copy of the September 5 – 12 Toronto issue of The Hollywood Reporter, featuring Jon Stewart on the front cover.
Last night, Stephen Colbert was a guest on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” where he spoke about his recent Emmy win, and attending the Primetime Emmy Awards with his wife Evie and 12 year old son John. Stephen also revealed that he will feature as “Falcon” on an alternate cover for the Captain America in November, and spoke about being invited to the set of “The Hobbit” by Peter Jackson and scaring the cast and crew with his joy and enthusiasm.

Well don’t worry, Colbert News Hub has you covered. We’ve done our best to compile all the breaking news and information surrounding the newest late night shuffle up.
