Is Stephen Colbert as funny as he was when he did The Colbert Report? No, of course not. But that’s not his fault. The Colbert Report was one of the funniest television shows to ever exist, and Colbert simply can’t get away with making the same jokes he did on Comedy Central.
Regardless, Stephen Colbert is an American national treasure, so any time he does basically anything, it’s worth watching, especially when it’s running around the streets of the city terrorizing New Yorkers.
The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert appeared on the season finale of Billy On The Street to quiz “real” New Yorkers or, as they call them, “elitist New York pieces of sh*t,” on what they think of President Donald Trump. Given the fact that ol’ Hilldog won 79% of the city’s vote, it’s safe to assume almost everyone is a Hillary supporter.
Cobert showed he can still roll with the best of him after dropping this fire pandora’s box line on this one unsuspecting woman:
Random lady: I’m concerned about the people he’s bringing into his cabinet. He’s opening Pandora’s Box.
Colbert: He actually grabbed Pandora’s Box without asking permission.
Unequivocal comedic genius.
