How do you rate Stephen Colbert?
« on: March 04, 2022, 05:57:06 pm »
I have recently started watching some of his videos on YouTube. Not being American I don't know much about him. How do you rate him? He seems great but of course I don't know what he is really like other than I find him entertaining.
There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

Was better with his Trump stuff than his Biden stuff. Haven't watched him again for months.

HIS FIRST SHOW WAS FUNNIER. HE'S BETTER OFF-SCRIPT THAN WHEN DELIVERING TEAM-WRITTEN MONOLOGUES.

HIS TRUMP TWITTER RECITATIONS WERE INITIALLY VERY FUNNY BUT EVENTUALLY GOT OLD.

PRETTY GOOD INTERVIEWER BY THE STANDARDS OF LATE NIGHT TALK SHOWS, BUT SOMEWHAT RESTRICTED BY HAVING TO SCHMOOZE WITH CELEBRITIES.

PREFERS WHISKY TO BUD LIGHT. BUT THAT'S ALRIGHT.

Who let the dogs out?

- Mitt Romney

His "Meanwhile" segments are gold.

Right up there with Maher's "New Rules".

He's definitely no Conan O'Brien (definitely watch Conan w/o Borders) or Graham Norton(He's peak celebrity talk show host) but he's better than Fallon. I'm not sure where to rank Trevor Noah or Jimmy Kimmel though.

Conan? He is Letterman but with a bigger ego and less laughter.

Kimmel I don't understand why he's on TV. I can't stand 5 minutes of him.

Fallon is a SNL goofball who oozes FUN, but not much else. His subway surprise music segments are stellar. Those musical enclosed room bits are gold too. His interviews though like a 12 year old thrown into it, despite having done it for years: awkward, but at least unexpected. Forgot to watch him last night? No big loss,... whatsoever.

Omg
Do you have a crush on the little troll too?
You buy that narcissists act?
He was elected on the promise that he would ease tensions with Russia.
He is a failure.

If you listen to hi advisor it would seem as if this was their plan.

Donít poke the bear.


And Colbert has absolutely destroyed late night with his far leftwing politics.  NO Late night host before has done was he has done in revealing himself to be such a tool of the machine.   
Bonzai!

He was sort of funny with his fake conservative show.  But now, he's just predictable preaching to a liberal choir.  Nothing original or funny about him.  But over the past 10 or 15 years most late night talk show hosts have gone to shit anyways.  Just far left rants and fake humor.  Maybe 20 years ago some of these folks were funny as they picked on everyone but were much less political overall.  Now, they are too one sided political and are really trying too hard, not that funny, and everyone on their team is fake laughing telling themselves they are funny over and over again hoping that they will believe it.

Has there been a talk show host worth talking about since Carson?

I like Seth Meyers.  his day drinking bits are particularly fantastic. As well as his weekly corrections on youtube from the past weeks shows.
