Stephen Colbert Appreciation Thread

I've already seen two or three ATs here, so I know it's a thing.

Colbert has been the most relentless Trump-basher of anybody in American media, entertainment or news, for the past five years! Before Trump's election, after Trump's election, and now in the post-Trump aftermath, Stephen has gone after Don like a dog with a bone, skewering the liar/racist/rapist/traitor/phony/bully/quisling/wimpy ex-prez in his monologue every night! To me, he is a Hero of the Electronic Resistence that finally booted the the orange-headed Putin-Sucker out of office!

Maher? He's good, but he spends almost as much time shitting on Democrats as he does Trump and his Cult. Oliver is good, too, but he's only on once a week, just like Maher, and his Main Story can be any of a thousand topics, the Four-Year Fat Fool being only one.

Kimmel? Good guy, but nowhere NEAR as relentless as Colbert! And do not get me started on Jimmy Fucking No-Talent "Tousle Donny's Hair" Fallon!

Stephen is the King, and I ain't talkin' about the horror author in Maine.

3. +1. Colbert is a national treasure.

Maher annoys the shit out me by playing the game of extrapolating the behavior of one person to impugn the whole group. eg, "Wow. The people on the school board in San Francisco is soooooo are politically correct by proposing renaming high schools. This is why the democrats give me a sad. I'm so libertarian and above all."

8. He is a really good mimic

For a long time he read real tweets verbatim in that raspy, strained voice with an undertone of whimpering, so much closer to the real thing than Alec Baldwin's. His Mnuchin and Eric impressions are hilarious. And he does a superb Biden, mining the funny parts of the president's personality (the aviator glasses; calling everyone "Jack"; etc.) more in adoration than insult.

10. I stopped watching him about a year ago...

After several episodes of his Adam Driver 'joke' or whatever the fuck it was, my lady and I could not watch him anymore. It was not funny but really pretty fucking creepy and after a few episodes with the same creepy shit going on and on with no hint that he would move on and cut the crap, we decided we were done with him. Mimicking a stalker for weeks on end with no explanation was simply too much. He nailed it so well that my lady (who had been stalked before) and I wrote him off as a shit bag that would never get our viewership back. Don't know if or how he ever resolved it and don't really care, as far as we are concerned he is Woody Allen category now. Fuck him.

12. You sure it's wasn't the John Oliver show?

He was the one crushing on Adam Driver. Maybe it’s an inside joke.

22. You are way off the track! Lay off the smoke. You are talking about John Oliver.

He (John Oliver) is so f--ing brilliant and his bit with Adam Driver that culminated in his final 2020 show was nothing short of genius. You tube and watch. You won't be sorry.

24. Pass

Being an asshole as he was cannot be forgiven. My lady was deeply disturbed by it and no 'end joke' can make up for the pure shittiness he pulled to get there. Some things are just not funny to people who had to go though it for real.

I mean, since he wasn't guilty of what you thought he was guilty of.

11. I didn't like him when he was on Comedy Central show being a conservative

But I absolutely love him now and record him every night.

And I love it when he has his wife on! You can tell they are soulmates. That’s why he is so grounded.

16. I appreciate Stephen more than I used to.

I still don’t think “The Colbert Show” was entertaining, his first book was poor enough that I won’t buy more books he writes, and I wasn’t looking forward to his takeover of “Tonight” when it was announced.

Who knows, maybe he’s so good of an actor that he just made me really loathe the Raw dipwad character he created on his first show? Obviously I’ve come around to what he does on “Tonight”, and more than once I’ve purposely tuned in to see his (writers’, actually, have to credit them too) take on a particularly foolish thing trump did. Rarely disappointed, and I have appreciated knowing I’m not the only one who thought that way.

18. And kudos to his staff, too!

I'm always amazed at how fast the writers come up with hilarious monologues after an event that occurs mere minutes before a live show!

And Jon Batiste and his band is just super talented!

Wish he'd get more air time than he does.

Yeah, the writing staff is pretty damn talented. I liked the fake Melania, too. She was great!

21. We are major Colbert fans

He really hated the former guy. He cries a lot, which I find very touching. He loves his wife very, very much. Don't even start with him and Lord of the Rings. This is a real human--he's rich, he's famous, but he's so accessible. I happily join this thread in appreciation of him.

In fact, I saw a list on a magazine's website that showed Celebrities Who Really Care About Humanity, and he was on it, along with people like Greta Thunberg and Pope Francis.

29. Stephen has been great! Love Seth Meyer's "A Closer Look", too!

I can't remember right now how I described their different vocal take that mirrored parts of drumph's (?) personality, and approach.

ETA:
All I had to do was look at some colbert monolouges.

So I thought Stephen voiced him sarcastic, and mean.

While to me Seth voiced him dumbish, and sometimes mean.

Love them both! ❤️❤️


I forgot Trevoh Noah. His drump stuff etc is also very funny!
