Stephen Colbert Offers An Oscars Wrap-Up

Why didn't he host the ceremony? If you ever need a little help putting a silly pop culture phenomenon in perspective, I recommend visiting Mr. Stephen Colbert. In this clip, he breaks down not only why the Oscars are so great, but also why we're now even for the whole slavery thing. So I guess the Oscars did what the civil rights movement and Civil War couldn't. To be fair, though, those other two things didn't have Jared Leto with eyeshadow and ombre hair.

Jon Stewart And Stephen Colbert Fight About Who's The Biggest 'Star Wars' Fan For Charity

"I take umbrage at that" "Give me back my umbrage!" It's always fun to watch our the Comedy Central news team (Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart) geek out, though Jon Stewart should know from Colbert's Tolkien rants that he's not to be trifled with. So enjoy them arguing about who likes Star Wars more. And if you don't care for the geekier things in life, there's still of plenty of comedy here to satisfy. And if you don't find their brand of humor funny – you're making this really difficult, by the way – you can do it for the UNICEF cause that feeds and aids children across the world. AND IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT FOR YOU...then you're beyond help my friend. Check out the video for information on how to give.


Stephen Colbert Blasts Pitchfork For Accusing His Publicity Stunt Of Being A Publicity Stunt

Even though it totally was. Stephen Colbert was appalled when Daft Punk canceled on him at the last minute in order to fulfill their long-standing obligation of appearing on MTV's Video Music Awards. So appalled that he blasted the Comedy Central sister channel and was able to round up recent guests Jeff Bridges, Hugh Laurie, and Bryan Cranston to join him for an epic lip sync to the French duo's "Get Lucky". All before hiring Thicke at the last minute in what probably wasn't an awkward negotiation at all. Anyway, Pitchfork called shenanigans on this obvious shenanigry. What you see above is Stephen Colbert's response. I say let's not get lost in the details and all agree that we'd like to go to a wedding with Stephen Colbert. His dance moves are hot fire.


Stephen Colbert Has An Offer For Donald Trump

I would also like to pitch in. Stephen Colbert (whose balls are so big he carries them in a sidecar on weekends) was inspired by Donald Trump's Joker-esque proposal that President Obama release his college and passport applications in exchange for $5 million worth of charitable donations. And so, he made an offer to Mr. Trump on last night's Colbert Report. “Nation, I am so moved by this generous offer, that I’d like to make an offer of my own. Mr Trump, I will write you a check for $1 million dollars from Colbert Super PAC — you know I’ve got it — to the charity of your choice…Save The Children. Feed The Children. Put The Children on Child Apprentice, whatever…One million actual dollars, if you will let me dip my balls in your mouth. One million.” Of course, there are conditions. “But…this dipping — and I hope you’re listening very carefully Mr Trump — this dipping has to be to my and more importantly, my balls’ satisfaction. One caveat…My balls must be in your mouth no later than 5pm October 31st. Nothing would make America happier than to have something going into your mouth than coming out of it.” Amazing. Though I doubt Trump will do it. He simply doesn't care enough about the children.


Stephen Colbert Comes To The Defense Of The Crossguard Lightsaber

Amateur hour is over. With people losing their hands left and right in the Star Wars films, it only makes sense that the sequels would make some strives forward in wrist protection. However, since the introduction of the crossguard lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser, there's been strong debate about the impractical nature of the design. I even weighed in against it. Now, the world's longest fan of Star Wars, Stephen Colbert is coming to its defense. His reasoning should shut down this argument. However, I posit that three laser beams are unwieldy and increase your chance of accidental injury. Prove me wrong.


Stephen Colbert, Upon Learning He's Been Educating His Viewers, Promises To Knock That Off Immediately

We're just here for the laughs, Steve. In response to the news that his viewers were better-informed about campaign finance reform than regular news viewers, Stephen Colbert has promised to stop informing his viewership, effective now. In this Colbert Report clip, he tackles the issue straight-on, telling the world that he would just want to be funny. Amidst the joking, he did manage to land one huge barb, letting the world know what we all think about Fox News. He said: "That’s right! I did abetter job of informing the public about campaign finance reform than every other news organization  — and CNN. So let that be a lesson to you Fox: show — don’t tell. If you want your viewers to have a better understanding of your editorial position, they need to see you sucking Ted Cruz’s balls." Don't look now, Stephen, but you're teaching us again...

Stephen Colbert Calls Bill O'Reilly A 'F*cking Egomaniac' On TV, To No One's Real Surprise

Settle it in the octagon, fellas. Recently, we've seen Stephen Colbert, who has a Kaufmanesque way of staying in character during the run of his show, break out a little bit. Likely, he's trying to let the public know that he's not the mechanized conservative moralist that he portrays on his show, but a regular, funny dude. Last night, he took one more step in that direction by calling Bill O'Reilly a "f*cking egomaniac." Why? Just because O'Reilly generally is that. Also, O'Reilly called out Stephen Colbert and "people of his ilk" for not knowing how to fight a war against ISIS. They don't know ground wars the way the guys at Fox know ground wars. Watch the damn video.
