The Best of the Colbert Report compiles many of the funniest moments from the wickedly satirical program. In addition to numerous editions of his segment "The Word", including the inaugural piece which gave "truthiness" to the world, this release also contains the first visit by Bill "Papa Bear" O' Reilly to the show. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
not sure what the previouse reviewer was talking about. although he will probably edit his horrible review once he reads this. actually colbert has averaged higher ratings than jon stewart almost since the beginning of receiving his own show. colbert is definately a comedic genius. mixed with alot of dry humor that todays tv is missing most of the time. and a perfect level of sarcasm. this dvd will of coarse leave out plenty of your favorate moments because no doubt there are too many great moments to fit on the disc. still worth a viewing. i would say, it might be best to make sure you like colbert first as some do not appreciate his form of comedy. the best moments to me are when he is forced to do improv for one reason or another.
Stephen Colbert cracks me up. The guy is a comedic genius. This DVD is a nice overview of his brilliance. Of course you could never fit everything onto one DVD, but it gives a nice flavor of what Colbert is all about, along with some very enjoyable laughs. Stephen started out as a correspondent on the Daily Show, but eventually got his own show. Where The Daily show doesn't hide it's political ideology, Stephen plays the part of a right leaning conservative pundit - even though he is clearly a liberal and makes his points in such a hilarious and poignant way. He models his show after The O'Reilly Factor starring "papa bear" Bill O'Reilly. It's very good stuff and makes for a fine hour of TV coupled with the Daily Show.
Colbert has too many halarious memories to compact on one DVD, but this does include many of them. Stephen Colbert, America's finest in the news, has been on air with the Colbert Report for over three years now, and has recieved higher ratings than Jon Stewart. Colbert is un-biast unlike most of today's new. Everyone gets what they deserve. I reccomend this DVD to all.
