Sometimes Colbert and Stewart have the most random-seeming guests on, and you forget that yep, they are some of your favorite real-life creatures ever. Here’s director and Role Models author John Waters on last night’s Colbert Report. It will be tough, but take a break from marveling at his white shoes and (book) jacket-matching socks to listen to verbal gems along the lines of this: “I taught a first grade class — the same class that I teach in prison. We did improv. We did an airplane crash and they loved it. They were hugging me. I gave them presents like Oprah. I gave them rat skeletons and they really liked it.” We really like you, too, John Waters. Video after the jump. READ FULL STORY »

Remember when Rain won the MTV Movie Award for Biggest Badass Star and everyone was like “Who is Rain?” No? Well, you were smart to be watching Breaking Bad instead. Here’s the deal with Rain. He’s a Korean pop sensation with whom Stephen Colbert feuded in 2008 because both were up for the top spot in the Time 100. Stephen challenged Rain’s reign with his spoof video, “He’s Singin’ in Korean.” Then Rain actually showed up at The Colbert Report to look his “old nemesis” in the eye, and Rain and Stephen had a proper dance-off. Smoke machines, empty studio, tight red jeans on a respected newsman, a struggle to the near-death for Dance Dance Revolution domination, the works. This time he was DANCING in Korean! Please do relive it after the jump. The takeaway from all of this is that 1) Stephen Colbert is hot; 2) Trivia: Rain played Taejo Togokahn in Speed Racer; 3) This is why every time it rains, I look to the sky, shake my fist, and yell “Raaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiinnnnnn!” Nerd.

On last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen pulled an April Fool’s stunt of Oprahic proportions — after showing off how his iPad could slice vegetables into a really awful-looking “salsa,” he instructed members of the studio audience to check under their seats. It was an iPad…in a photo…with Stephen. Earlier, on The Daily Show, Countdown to the Closing Bell anchor Liz Claman compared Wall Street to a casino. The recession is over! April Fool’s; no, it’s not. Watch both clips after the jump. READ FULL STORY »
On last night’s Colbert Report, Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing, spoke to Stephen via satellite to unceremoniously deny that he is the second coming of Buddha. A religious group called “Share International” headed by a man named Boston Creme Doughnut claims Patel is a form of the Messiah they call “Maitreya” — due to his age, skin tone, travel habits, and speech patterns. Stephen just thinks it’s because Patel got the Colbert Bump when he was a guest on the Report in January.
Is anyone getting “The Human Fund” vibes from “Share International”? And if not Raj Patel, who else could be the second coming of Buddha? Their birthdays don’t work, but my two best guesses are below.
Moments after Jon Stewart dropped his pants for Brian Williams on The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert put on his pimp costume in an attempt to coax Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity into a new line of work. I can’t believe The Colbert Report got this EXCLUSIVE interview for a measly Tip of the Hat segment! (Starts about halfway through video.)
Way to pull it off, Stephen…with your teeth.
On last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen declared Kwedit.com “the next economic bubble.” Yep, the “social payment network” fronted by a solemnly swearing duck who would surely be crushed to death by the friendly Twitter bird, is real. Kids, who can apparently only understand wowds whewe the ‘r’s are weplaced by ‘w’s, can play games like Foo Pets on credit, and parents, you should probably look into this because the next thing they’re going to “chawge” is a $400 virtual doghouse.
Had you heard of Kwedit before? I live in my own economic bubble overlorded by the Chase Bank Chimichanga, who hates me so much I wouldn’t want to upset him or her (unclear) with weird play-crap like this. If I had internet access and Kwedit when I was a kid, though, I’d have gotten into so much trouble. But not by Kweditng pet games or anything remotely interactive — I’d probably do something more loserish like Kwedit a bunch of Mr. Sketch Scented Watercolor Markers so that I could have backup packs if the turquoise/mango (?!) kind ran out. You know, just in case.

In an unprecedented act of sportsmanship, Stephen Colbert took Canadian Iceholes off the on-notice board, where they had previously been sandwiched between Jane Fonda and limey squirrel eaters. And it may have been the Ziploc bag of cheap prescription drugs talking, but the Canadian spirit seemed to have won over our single-minded patriot. “Canada, I’ve changed my mind. You’re all Saskatcha-winners.” Yes, the host country’s “Own the Podium” campaign may have faltered, but Colbert was kind enough to share a “Cheer Up Canada” montage. Moose, maple syrup, cartoon mounties, Alex Trebek. Awwww. The assistant sports psychologist also gave us unprecedented access to the U.S. speed skating team’s locker room and interviewed snowboarder Seth Wescott, an esteemed PopWatch Olympic Stud of the Day. Last night’s Colbert Report is embedded below.
Sadly, it’s time to hang up that Ralph Lauren cardigan and bid adieu to the international broadcast chalet. READ FULL STORY »
