    We should collectively boycott any social occasion where the invitation states "No Gifts". It's a fake public relations move to make the hosts appear that they're not materialistic. As if they "want nothing more than to spend their special day with all of you". They want gifts. They're liars.

    I ran into Susie at Warner Bros. Studio. I made the mistake of confessing that sometimes Larry David's character would be so obnoxious that I had to turn it off. She looked at me like I was a diseased alien. "Why would you do that?" Susie.....I can handle Larry now, please forgive me.

    Colbert can be condescending, gives off judgmental looks with his false sense of wit and what he believes is intelligence - like at the end of the interview when he punctuated "What!", with crossbows' sounding annoyed. Who do you think you are!

    I have a similar runaway story. I put an apple, a small snack pack of Doritos, and a little puzzle book in the closest thing I could make to an old hobo bindle and then sat in an alley around the corner from my house until i got bored (probably 20 minutes). The next time, I packed more to do, lasted about 40 minutes, but it felt like an eternity.

      @h d Agree 100%. The time that most guests have is terribly rushed as they attempt (the networks, and those up high at said networks) to compress everything - thus it’s a format that is never cohesive, too much material etc. kills content every time :/

      Why can't we have a show like the UK's Graham Norton Show? Every interview on Colbert feels like a "speed round" of questions. And it's the same for the other late night talk shows, must cram in as many ads as the audience will tolerate.

    I love Susie Essman, I have been a fan for decades. She has strong ties in my community, and appears here often. Imagine my surprise when comedian Amy Schumer used a joke that Susie Essman wrote when Schumer was still in high school. No attribution, no credit, just a right-in-your-face, bold as brass, STOLEN joke. Susie was surprised that Schumer just stole her joke and used it in her special, I was NOT surprised. Schumer is no Susie Essman!
