YOU FOLKS WATCHING ON TV MIGHT BE INTERESTED TO KNOW THAT

JON AND I ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM THE AUDIENCE. IT’S ONE OF THOSE RITUALS THAT

THE CAMERA. OKAY, THIS EAR RIGHT HERE, I HAD
AN OPERATION ON IT. YOU SEE HOW MY HEAD IS NOT
SYMMETRICAL? ( LAUGHTER )
ABSOLUTELY HIDEOUS. SO I HAD AN OPERATION ON THIS
WHEN I WAS A KID, AND THEY SORT OF HAD TO CUT IT OPEN HERE TO
WORK ON MY EAR, BUT AS A RESULT MY EAR IS SUPER FLOPPY RIGHT
NOW. SO I CAN DO THIS WITH IT. I LEARNED THIS WHEN I WAS A

  1. If this a possible way to ask Mr. TV a question:
    did you ever complete the congressional district reviews on your old show and if so, what about the gerrymandering … oh yeah … that's what's happening now …

  2. To the lady who asked the question and then jammed along Stephen's air trumpet (?) of Feels So Good? Thank you, and SAME LADY SAME.

  3. Stephen Colbert is an absolute treasure in SO many ways! Easily within my top 10 (possibly top 5) people I'd like to not only meet, but get to just hang out with for a day.

  4. This is what I have been missing. It's like the Daily Show's between the scenes that I love so much. Goes to show that Colbert is more than a man with a script.

  5. The only reason I want Fox News to continue talking about the caravan is because I want to see Stephen dance the caravan. His spotting technique is good,

  6. The Cool Guy Who Can't Walk Down Stairs is just another example of why I love this man dearly. Stephen brings well needed levity to an often ( cough read: always) bleak administration.

  7. Thanks for uploading this! After the cartoon episode I wanted to see more of these questions so much!!! Make it regular, please!

  8. What was the caravan again?
    Oh, that's right! An army of communist Muslims were coming up through Mexico to rape and murder their way through the US and bringing tons of drugs with them!
    Are they there yet?

  9. These are so good! Please make this a regularly uploaded thing. How else are we going to get gems like Really Cool Guy Who Can’t Wall Down Stairs?

  10. um, yeah. HI. Colbert & Team? We're gonna need a lot more of these. Thank you. JUST SO WE'RE CLEAR. THE BOOK IS BOUGHT. <3

  11. For the love off all that is sacred… would someone PLEASE make a GIF of "Really Cool Guy Who Can't Walk Down Stairs"???

  12. I haven't been a huge fan of Colbert but this compilation makes me appreciate him more as when the cameras aren't rolling its even harder to keep people entertained and that stair bit was good physical comedy which is a rare thing these days so kudos.

  13. MY HUSBAND AND 2 KIDS, 6 & 9, DO THE EAR THING TOO!!! No surgery, all naturally lol my husband does it when his ears are cold drives me crazy and then he looks at me and Pops it up LOL just thought I'd share that with you Steven🦄 it's pretty magical😙

  14. Too funny…
    Bet a few drinks of his fave bourbon helped him polish that can't walk down stairs bit nicely. :0
    Love u, Stephen!!!!!

  15. I remember during the election when Trump would call you. Eventually you seemed to not be too excited about that. What did you discover?

  16. I hope he's being facetious at 1:09 and he's never actually thought of himself as hideous! I mean, I'm sorry that he's deaf in that ear but I don't think it detracts from his looks at all; it makes him look unique and therefore more interesting…
