Last night was the second-to-last episode of The Colbert Report, so Stephen decided to get rid of nine years' worth of Colbert Report memorabilia crowding up the offices by putting on his very own yard sale. You know the end is near when even Michael Stipe is for sale for 25 cents.
Stephen Colbert has done some strange interviews over the years, but none have been as weird, witty, and life-threatening as last night's guest, The Hobbit's fierce dragon Smaug. Not only do Colbert and Smaug discuss heavy topics like Hollywood's liberal bias and Smaug's support for Rand Paul, but they manage to complete the entire interview without Stephen getting eaten.
President Barack Obama was the guest on last night's special Colbert Report episode taped from Washington DC, and not only did he sit down for his final interview with "Stephen Colbert," but he took over "The Word" segment to show Colbert just how easy his job is. Watch more clips from the episode below:
During last night's Colbert Report, Stephen announced that Monday's show will be a special episode taped from George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium in DC. Much like Colbert's Election Day episode ("Midterms '014: Detour to Gridlock: An Exciting Thing That I Am Totally Interested In– Wait! Don't Change the Channel. Look at This Video of a Duckling Following a Cat Dressed Like a Shark Riding a Roomba! '014!"), Monday's episode also has the perfect title: "Stephen Colbert Presents: Mr. Colbert Goes to Washington D.C. Ya Later, Legislator: Partisan is Such Sweet Sorrow: A Colbert Victory Lap, ‘014."
