  • Anyone know the specific song by Mangione that stephen sang? Amazing vibes.

  • John looked so tired. His eyes are so puffy.


  • Camembert and Olives

  • "What friendship have you had that has impacted you the most" might be a good first date question but I suspect "my wife" is a _terrible_ first date answer.

  • *My first concert:* Santana, Santa Clara County Fairgrounds, 1969; I went with my stepfather *Last time I sang with myself:* As with SC, I sing all the time; I was a choral singer for 35 years *Secret idea of how I’ll die:* When I’m ready to move in, I think that would be the best time to try heroin *Most important friend:* My brother Anthony

  • Minneapolis IS the most amazing place in America, JOHN

  • 2 rules of first date: 1. never talk about your wife 2. never talk about your wife

  • "one of those websites posing as a sustainable business"

  • The MSM missed the show as they suffer from Unintentional Mass Delusion. As an example is MSM tries to dictate to the public through technical propaganda by "Word Repetition" - Manufactured Crisis at the border, Women and Children in Cages, ICE are thugs, He has his finger on the Nuclear Button, He Does Not have Confidence in his INTEL, Biggest Liar, Sexist...................When you have two extreme views in the MSM, it means that the messages they are sending out can not be trusted; when the messages are relatively the same, the MSM can be trusted. The MSM fails to learn that Trump is a Genius.

  • John Oliver, you don't clink, (twice !) and then don't take a drink ! A bartender knows that. Did you get fired? Love you though, good show.

    • oh sorry, maybe John doesn't drink....

  • John Oliver saw Prince and I, someone from Minneapolis (the most amazing place in America) never did and I should just launch myself into the sun now kthx

  • Genuinely thought that they were the same person

  • This is hilarious

  • Well I’m insanely depressed with anxiety hitting me like a truck. That last one really doesn’t lift the spirits. yay.

  • Conan = kimmel > colbert >cordon >fallon =Oliver

  • 9:05-9:15 was great 😂

  • Your brit doppleganger.

  • I know a couple who died like that. They weren’t even that old. Wife died and husband followed 1 mo later. The family were expecting the wife to go for years, but the husband dying was unexpected.

  • Minneapols is the most amazing place in America. True fact

  • I now wish last week tonight had interviews

  • I’m a trumpet player, so to see him doing Feels so Good, uh, it just felt so good. But, what kind of mouthpiece was the saxophone player using? Sax players, please enlighten me.


  • I’m so happy this happened I’m twerking. I twerk when I happy

  • they dunk on minneapolis, but, honestly, it is one of the greatest cities in the us

  • So what does that say about men who live way after their wives go?

  • Good chemistry they have

  • The other day, i watched his audition tape for dana carvey show. Shortly after he started talking he cried holding his baby in a diaper that was too old, too smelly yet he couldn't afford to buy new one for his own child. Since then every time i see Stephen mention his wife it reminds me of the video. From that point for me Stephen is a kind of guy who remembers his hard time and really really appreciates what he had even back then and his wife definitely was there for him. And he is still very grateful for that, i believe.

  • this was amazing

  • Well, they must be made for each other. I'd find that level of adoration (and dependence) cloying, humbly preferring my brilliance and panache to be treated as granted. ;-)

  • I always used "Jingle Bells" to get rid of earworms. Works like 70-80 % of the time. I'll try the By Mennon thing lmao

  • Lol these two have no chemistry whatsoever it's very entertaining

  • I would pay solid money to watch and or listen to those two having a conversation for an hour - easy

  • "What is yours as a human fatal weakness?" Shish, I love how effortlessly John just spit out a good joke like he was making a small-talk point on the weather conditions

  • My grandpa died because of that reason. Grandma died 2y before him and all he ever talked is how he wants to go after her. I remember his face, he was smiling. That was the only funeral I didn't feel sad at.

  • Is rugby football so socker is also football, baseball is not cricket, grasshoppers & preying mentis (dont do maths & meth) can do cannabis

  • Wait. Are John Oliver's balls poisonous? What kind of wine does Stephen like? Bourbon.

  • Is he wearing a 1st Calvary pin?

  • All the flipped interviews I've watched are great but this might be the best 😊

  • Damnit that wife bit made me cry! I did not come here to cry!

  • [8:33] (and onwards) Did anyone else almost get the feeling like possibly Colbert's wife HATES him? ...It reminds me of the kind of movie where a crooked politician is showcasing his "perfect" family for a TV commercial and the minute the cameras stop rolling the whole pretense goes out the window. Colbert's nobody's movie villain, but he is giving the kind of polished performance of spousal devotion that feels a bit too close to that plotline. If I'm wrong, then I sincerely apologize - and if not, I see the fault as lying equally much with agents and studios who insist that all elements of a celeb's actual real human life can be co-opted. I'm a big Colbert fan, and I'm also fine (really! I swear) with not feeling like I'm a family member or close personal confidante. PS I realized the "flipped" interviews are probably fully scripted - conventional guests, I think, are escorted through the interview primarily on the strength of the host's on-stage persona. But Colbert and Oliver are pros - excellent ones - and longtime collaborators. When you have two people who can really make a script sing, I know I want material for them to work their magic on.

  • I would date John Oliver...

  • King of the hill would be so proud

  • Steven: "It's been..." Me: >:C

  • Awwwwwwwww. Colbert loves his wife ❤️

  • Aww, I feel the same way about my wife. You're a good man, Stephen. Single people, don't settle for less.

  • I never comment on videos, but I saw this earlier today and it made me smile and laugh the whole time. I could genuinely watch them joke and enjoy themselves for an entire episode. 💜

  • I have come to believe men like this don’t exist, those who have sincere appreciation for their wife and understand what a gift her presence is. Stephen has proved me wrong.

  • Half expected Jon Stewart to pop up during that last question

  • This is too funny

  • Who else needs a "Stephen Colbert" in their life?.. *purposely sounding desperate... lmao

  • Worst EARWORM ever: Delta Dawn

    • Listen to the Dash RIP Rock version. It is amazing!

  • Wow. What a voice at 3:21, tremendously beautiful singing voice! That vibrato at the end, chills!

  • John Oliver and I both saw Prince for our first concert and at the same age! OMG!

  • I gotta write a script for these two. I’ve waited long enough for someone else to do it. Crazy mofo’s 😂😂

  • John Oliver is probably the best 1 coming out of the daily show

  • Confrimed Stephen's a Neil Cicirega fan.

  • homo erotic jokes...how original.....no talent fool.

  • Stephen Colbert sustains himself with Wife Loving juice 💕

  • That is one rough edit at 7:53. Yikes. I wonder what they cut out.
