Colbert welcomes fellow 'Daily Show' alums to 'Late Show'

Colbert welcomes fellow 'Daily Show' alums to 'Late Show'

So, it's no surprise the President had a LOT to say about Stephen Colbert's controversial quip about Trump being Vladimir Putin's "cock holster".

The former Comedy Central pack, which also included correspondents Ed Helms and Rob Corddry, stopped by Colbert's "Late Show" on Tuesday.

His Midnight Confessions book, coming September 5 from Simon & Schuster, will feature some of Colbert's funniest pleas for forgiveness from the show, as well as fan-submitted confessions.

The festivities commenced with a pre-taped cold open, during which Stewart and Colbert rushed over to Comedy Central's World News Headquarters to present The Daily Show's current host, Trevor Noah, with his pre-show meal. The rest of the guests have gone on to have successful careers as well. Samantha Bee (center) now hosts Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS.

And then there's the reality that Colbert is a comedian, and comedians tell jokes. His show brought in an average of 3.06 million viewers over the week, up 12% from the week before, which helped him win late night for the fourteenth consecutive week, according to Nielsen data.

According to the Daily Mail , the 23-year-old England worldwide is being courted by Jose Mourinho and the Red Devils for an outstanding fee of £40m.

"I've got a question: You all cheered.... Why?" "I mean, this guy does something ridiculous, like, at least once a month".

In the skit, Stewart, wearing a dark brown wig, cries and eats yogurt as he realizes that his correspondents will 'all spread your wings and leave me'. We're never gonna hear from HER again'. "It looks fake. It looks like a morning show right now".

In the second, more serious half of the show, all five "Daily Show" alums sat down with Colbert to discuss how making jokes about comedy has changed over the years, specifically since they were all doing it together over 10 years ago. "It's the difference between insult and injury", Stewart concluded. Bee and Oliver have launched their own popular weekly late-night series, while Helms starred in The Office and The Hangover trilogy, and Corddry counts Hot Tub Time Machine and Ballers among his credits. "He can injure", said Stewart, referring to the president. Still, he added, "The process of making the show somehow became entwined with my process of making sense of things that I didn't understand".

The two then launched into a deeper conversation about James Comey's termination from his post, Bill O'Reilly's ouster at Fox news, and how Stewart feels about being off air during such a tumultuous time.
