Stephen Colbert Gives James Corden Some Late Night Hosting Advice

James Corden takes over The Late Late Show in March, and during last night's Colbert Report he met with the retiring "Stephen Colbert" to get some late night advice, bond over their shared love for musical theater, and sing a good old fashioned Christmas carol. Click through for another clip from last night's Colbert, in which the show closes out its long-running segment "Better Know a District" with Jack Kingston, the very first congressman who had the honor of getting better known by Stephen.

Watch Trevor Noah Make His 'Daily Show' Debut

Back in October, Comedy Central announced that South African standup Trevor Noah would be joining The Daily Show as a contributor in December, and he made his debut last night to teach Jon a few things about his home country. It turns out that Africa isn't as bad as a lot of Americans think it is — in fact, some might say it's even better than the US.

Amy Sedaris Interrupts Her Old Friend Stephen Colbert on 'The Colbert Report'

Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert's friendship goes way, way back, so even though she was bumped from last night's Colbert Report to make room for guest Christopher Nolan, Sedaris still found a way to appear on the show with her old pal.

Nick Kroll Reveals 'Kroll Show's Third Season Will Be Its Last

Sad news for Nick Kroll fans: Kroll Show's third season premieres on Comedy Central January 13th, and in a new interview with Vulture today, Kroll officially announced that the show will end after season 3. Kroll and Comedy Central hadn't planned to end the show until, according to Kroll, "it just became clear that we wrapped up a lot of the stories and characters that we had created, and felt like we had brought a number of them to their natural conclusion. So, as opposed to stringing out more seasons, we wanted to feel like we were going out with the best work that we’ve done."

Amy Schumer Is Producing a Comedy Central Pilot Starring Rachel Feinstein

Amy Schumer is teaming up with comedian Rachel Feinstein for a brand new Comedy Central show. Deadline reports that the network has given a pilot order to an untitled series starring Feinstein and co-executive produced by Schumer described as "a field-driven sketch show that focuses on Feinstein out on the street using her social experiments and character-based comedy to explore and skewer gender, class and stereotypical issues in sketch and character-driven pieces."

President Obama Is Monday Night's 'Colbert Report' Guest

Ya Later, Legislator: Partisan is Such Sweet Sorrow: A Colbert Victory Lap, ‘014."

Stephen Colbert Provides a Comprehensive Analysis of the New 'Star Wars' Lightsaber

Considering he's been a Star Wars fan for at least two weeks longer than most, Stephen Colbert took it upon himself to address the controversy surrounding the film franchise's new and improved lightsaber during last night's Colbert Report. It all makes sense if you know how multiple focusing crystal activators work, and if you don't, you probably shouldn't be debating lightsabers with Colbert.

Comedy Central's animated show TripTank might get its own spin-off series. THR reports that the network is currently developing a spin-off from duo Sean Donnelly and Alessandro Minoli that will be an animated series based on their TripTank series Jeff & Some Aliens, which follows Jeff (Brett Gelman) and "three extraterrestrials who are sent to Earth to study the world's most average guy to evaluate whether humanity and the planet should be destroyed."

Additionally, Donnelly and Minoli have a second animated/live-action hybrid in development at CC called The Amazing Danny, which [...]
