Funnyman of The Colbert Report fame*, Stephen Colbert, is about to assume the role of the host of the Late Show on CBS, this Tuesday. (David Letterman retired from the Late Show in May after being the longest-serving late night talk show host in American television history). The Late Show is actually too late for me (it starts at 11.30 pm! – yikes), but I will definitely make an effort to check out the first shows hosted by Stephen Colbert.
*The Colbert Report was a satirically ‘conservative’ comedy show hosted by Stephen Colbert, but he once remarked during an interview, ‘I’m not someone with a particular political ax to grind. I’m a comedian. I love hypocrisy’.
