Tonight marks the end of an era when Stephen Colbert gets behind his desk for the last showing of 'The Colbert Report.' It's hard to say how sad it will be for me to never be able to watch his show again. His show is one of a handful of shows I watch religiously and rarely miss. His firm grasp of American politics is honestly second to none and his ability to stay in character, even during some of the craziest bits, baffles me. It will be extremely tough to fill his shoes.
However, there were a few times that he couldn't help but laugh at himself:Watch Stephen Colbert Break Character in Hilarious, 14-Minute Supercut
My favorite moment from his show was when he gave an emotional and heartfelt tribute to his mom after she passed. It was one of the very few times he broke character and spoke from the heart: Remembering Lorna Colbert
You can also listen to an interview with Slate Podcast where he is out of character and explains how he was able to stay in character for ten years:Listen to the Real Stephen Colbert Explain How He Maintained His Flawless Character for 9 Years
I highly recommend listening to the entire interview if you've ever wondered what he does to prepare for his show each day and what his plans are for the 'Late Show.'
Is anyone planning on watching the final show of 'The Colbert Report' tonight? What were your favorite moments from the show? And do you plan on watching him when he moves over to CBS or do you not think that you'll be able to watch him when he is not 'in character'?
