Stephen! (podcast)

Given that the response to this has been so humourless and pedantic, I think Oswald and I should keep it to ourselves. Moderators, feel free to close this thread again.

Love you, bye!

I’ll leave that up to Vaderesque. :stuck_out_tongue:

Not my thread… (mine never have this many responses :()

Stephen Colbert wouldn’t behave like this - he’d just acknowledge the joke bombed without blaming the audience.
Singular; the character Stephen Colbert plays on his show is a somewhat bombastic emotional sort who occasionally yells names in impotent anger. A running gag is that whenever he mentions Barry Manilow (who beat out Colbert for an Emmy), he shakes his fist and yells a mock-infuriated “Manilow!” Lately, he’s expanded the repertoire to include “Rickles!” (someone else who beat him at Emmy-time) and pretty much anyone else that’ll get a laugh from the audience.

What’s the opposite of ‘an apt comparison’?

An inept comparison?

An inept differentiation

I accept your apology. Let’s move on.

Let’s not, and say we did.

Are you really a Colbert fan?
