I don’t know how many of you have cable…or, if you do, watch Comedy Central. Anyhow, if you do, you are no doubt familiar with The Daily Show and the latest news show after it called The Colbert Report [pronounced “Col-bear Re-por”, no joke. well, the whole name is a joke – that’s the point]. Anyhow, the host is Stephen Colbert and he used to be a reporter for the daily show but he has his own show now. Sooooooo funny and not at all the same thing as the daily show. So, I’m watching last night and it was the funniest episode I’ve ever seen. Where as the daily show tends to lean toward the more liberalish side when making fun of stuff [but not seriously], the colbert report tends to lean the other way. You have to have seen Stephen Colbert’s comedy style to understand how this could work AND be funny. But basically, last night’s show topic was “the de-deification of the american faithscape”. He was going after the “lost lamb” the 8% of Americans who say they don’t believe in God. I don’t want to ruin the whole show and tell you everything, but if you can’t watch it, let me know and I can tell you. All I’m going to say is that I knew it would be a good episode when he said the ENTIRE Apostle’s Creed ….on ComedyCentral!!! And he was NOT reading it from a teleprompter – it was ingrained. He had Tony Campolo as his guest – and that was one of my favorite parts. Oh, and “pick your apocalypse” was good too. You’ll see. Or I’ll tell you. If you’ve got a decent internet speed, you can go to the website HERE and check for video clips. There’s none from last night yet, but I’m sure there will be soon.
10:30am, 2:30pm, and 8:30pm tonight – they are playing the rerun of last night. I suggest you watch it, if you can. [double check the times- might be different where YOU are]
