The Colbert Report


I stayed up late tonight to watch the first Colbert Report, and thought things went very well. I don’t know how long Comedy Central can keep it up, but this appears to be the beginning of something promising.

Now, anyone who has been part of the theater scene knows this, but I can imagine that some were confused by the Stone Phillips headline of: “What a to-do to do today at a quarter or two to two…”

That line is a standard vocal warmup for actors, particularly in the New York area, where the t’s approximate the Dutch d’s.

I believe the point was that news is not distinct from theater, at least not the way it is now.
