Todd Barry Talks Standup and His Book ‘Thank You for Coming to Hattiesburg’ on ‘The Late Show’

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Show, where Stephen Colbert chats with standup Todd Barry about his new book Thank You for Coming to Hattiesburg: One Comedian’s Tour of Not-Quite-the-Biggest Cities in the World, plus some standup memories like fighting Jon Stewart over a Dave Matthews Band song and enjoying the finest baked potatoes the Charleston Airport has to offer. “That picture’s actually in the book, and believe it or not, the publishers did not want the baked potato picture in there. They said it was boring,” Barry says. “You got the color version — it’s black and white in the book. The version I gave you, the spring onions really pop more.”
