  1. Looking forward to it!

    Just a nitpick, though: the show is called The Colbert Report; its website is called Colbert Nation.

  5. This was such a thought provoking and pertinent interview! I spend quite a bit of time on a site called http://www.indabamusic.com. Indaba Music closes the gap that distance creates, and I just saw that they are taking up the Colbert challenge!!!! Reminiscent of the green screen challenge anyone?!?!? Check it out! Its awesome (and hilarious!), basically a whole barrel of fun!

    unfortunately as a Canadian, I cannot watch this video, I did go to Colbert Nation and it told me that I had to go to comedynetwork.ca to see the video, however comedynetwork.ca doesn’t have the video
