For some reason---a reason not known to mankind or anyone else in the universe---I've just discovered that I love Stephen Colbert.
I have no idea how it happened, or when it happened, or WHAT happened exactly...but I'm totally addicted.
(big surprise, right? What? Daniel's obsessed with something again? WEIRD!)
I am just a little shocked that I didn't discover his brilliance sooner. Where was I? Why didn't anyone tell me how hilarious this is?
I mean...he's like Ron Burgandy and a smart person mixed together. Just perfect, comedic genius.
A couple of fun things for your enjoyment:
A portion of his show from last night about the Olympics (see very bottom of post).A sketch from a long time ago
(1996) with Steve Carell from "The Taco Bell Dana Carvey Show". A show that lasted all of six episodes on NBC. Although frankly, I think they didn't even air the last two...I only recall there being four episodes that aired. [An unfortunate thing-that show. It was like DC was trying to get booted off the network. So stupid of him.]
And the infamous blog posting
that gave me my first glimpse of the great Colbert. This is a super-spiffy clip, but I think it has been removed...bummers...
I shuffled through months and months of addy road
posts to find that sucker...only to be DENIED by the great lords of youtube (you know, those little people that live inside the internet that go around taking back all of the stolen videos and songs we post everywhere? Yeah, those guys removed it.) They're like the Oompa Loompas of cyberspace.
If you're dying for more, go to Comedy Central
to check it out. Hilarious stuff.
But I warn you...I've only been watching for a week or two...and I'm totally hooked.
And I really can't vouch for anything more than a week old...cause that's only how long I've been watching it...HAHAHA...
