Free Kit Kat & Sierra Mist

Man oh man, am I sad today. Talk about an end of an era. I first discovered both The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert while channel surfing on September 12, 2002. To say I was hooked from the start would be an understatement. You don't just happen to randomly remember what you watched on TV 12 years ago.

For me and millions of others, The Colbert Report wasn’t just a goofy comedy show, it was β€œmust see TV” for the twenty-first century. I’d be flabbergasted if I missed more than 3 of the 1440+ episodes. I can’t think of a single show that flopped either. Sure, there were segments here or there that missed the mark, but overall Colbert was in my life and making me laugh more than any other stranger over the past decade. And all while in character! I can't imagine what that must be like πŸ™‚

I shouldn't be tearing up all day like I have been. The man's not dead! He'll be back on TV before the end of next summer! I'm clearly biased, but there's no doubt in my mind he'll be amazing filling Letterman's shoes. But for the next nine months, my evenings will be a tad dimmer. September is an eternity away right now.

To Stephen and everybody who ever put an hour of work into that show, I cannot thank you enough. Colbert is my comedy idol and if I ever have an ounce of his talent or charisma, I'll die a happy man.

I think the only thing that could cheer me up would be a little comfort food like a free Kit Kat candy bar or a free Sierra Mist 2 liter.

Well hey, look at that!

  1. We’re with you on Colbert, Goob! We watched him from the beginning and he is like part of our family! He and Stewart educate us better than the news and make the lessons understandable and palatable. If only our teachers in school could have done that. As you say, September is a long way off. We need to support Larry Wilmore….we need to support Stewart. We can’t let them down, either. Happy…Colbertless…New Year! (It just doesn’t seem real to me yet.)
