Colbert Report was too much fun!!!

Thanks to lovely Leila, I got to go to the Colbert Report last night with Lily!! It was too much fun. The only downside of the experience was that as typical but still unfortunate nonetheless, they don't allow you to take photos inside the studio - so you'll just have to make do with these photos and watch the show!

Eager beavers:

Oh god. You really let us down last night by not saving us from these people. I had never actually met this specimen before so I didn't have evidence that they existed until last night - they actually believe Colbert's persona and think he's an awesome far-right republican like O-Reilly who speaks the truth. They were drunk and so irritating. The warm-up comic had to bring out a humongous shotgun prop to attempt to silence them. In the end, social pressure and the buzz wearing off sort of shut them up...sort of.

And look at who we befriended! A cute fluffball that most likely belongs to someone working at the Colbert Report. I'm jealous of this person for two reasons.

On the way home Lily, a long time lover of Montel, was psyched to find his studio!

Colbert and his team were fantastic - Colbert is of course blessed with the most hilariously expressive face and bundle of talent, mega-brains and star power. His production team was impressive - organized and communicative and seemed to be having a great time working! The warm-up comic was hilarious. It was a super fun experience - highly recommended!

Thanks again to Leila for the great gift and to Lily for being my date!

We don't know each other,but I used to read your blog for a while and stopped reading over a year ago. I had this dream about you last night though...I dreamt that I was interviewing to be your intern and you had me take a test that was part essay and part illustrating pictures with goldfish crackers. I realized that you were a genius. You laughed at how bad my essay was by the way. Thought you might find this amusing.

Missed it recently
but caught it last night-
and for some weird (psychic?) reason I was
acutely aware of the production side of the show...
you know, how small the studio is versus how
it all looks on tv...Anyway,
when he ran over for the guest interview
they shot him from behind
and I actually thought to myself
"I wonder if I know anyone in the audience"
because it was one of the only shows
when they've show the crowd...and for so long...
SOOOOOO HAPPY to know you were there.
Did you enjoy his live trib to My Humps???

Let us want to reunite soon...
I can feel it...

KO

and ps-
you DO inspire me so...

How do people actually think that Colbert's TV personality is sincere?! Did they just completely ignore the news and transcript of him lampooning Bush? Do they not read any interviews of him?

Anymore, people just don't understand satire.
