Stephen Colbert on Deconstructing the News, Religion and the Colbert Nation
Since Colbert Report has been on a break, I haven't been able to fall asleep as soundly without the soothing caress of Stephen Colbert's voice. With new episodes starting tomorrow night, I figured it gotta give the man an e-Colbert bump on here. The latest issue of Rolling Stone published a Q&A with Colbert that, interestingly enough, nixed the laugh track. Rather than setting him up with jokes, the article delves more into Stephen Colbert: the man (a devout Catholic who lost his father and two brothers in a plane crash when he was 10) and less about Stephen Colbert: the character. Go grab a copy of this, but in the meanwhile, check the bonus Q&A below and tune in to Comedy Central at 11:30 pm tomorrow night.
