    How the Colbert Report is made  OCT 17 2014

    For the first episode of podcast called Working, David Plotz talks to Stephen Colbert about how he and his staff construct The Colbert Report. This is fascinating.

    My show is a shadow of the news, so I have to know what shadow it's casting right now, so I can distort it in my own way.

    At the 13 minute mark, he talks about how the team communicates with each other about how the show is shaping up, changes, concerns, etc. They do it all by what sounds like text messaging. Paging Stewart Butterfield, you should get those folks on Slack. (via digg)

  7. Stephen Colbert - Witness

    Stephen Colbert needs little introduction! Born on May 13, 1964, in Washington, D.C., he joined Chicago’s Second City comedy troupe. Together with comedians Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello, they created and starred in both Exit 57 and Strangers with Candy. In 1997, Colbert began appearing in episodes of The Daily Show. In 2005, he was given his own spin-off show, The Colbert Report. He published I Am America (And So Can You!) in 2007. In 2014, it was announced that Colbert would replace David Letterman as host of CBS' Late Show. Stephen Colbert is not only a great comedian but a devout, proud Catholic who does not hide his religious beliefs and deep love of the Church.

    In this rare, personal interview with Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, Stephen Colbert tells all.
