    Like most people, I typically don't watch Colbert but I made an exception to watch Martin Short.

    Did Stephen really have to explain the “Bavarian seafood” joke? Cringe. The editor at The Late Show needs to cut it out

    seems like Martin is playing Jiminy Glick without the fat suit.

    Man Martin flirted the shit out of Colbert. But it's a pleasure to watch him

  • Paul Guasco - Theology, Philosophy, & Fun

    I love Martin short. He is genuinely one of the most underrated comedians of all time! He’s so genuinely happy, sharp, quick, witty, intelligent and zany.

  • WalterLiddy

    I guess Colbert figured the audience had missed a joke there so he'd better point it out. He's really not great as an interviewer when he's not doing a character.

    One day Jiminy Glick must interview Stephen Colbert from the Colbert Report.

    Stephen Colbert is no longer funny. I think it's because he chose politics over humor--he's lost his comedic edge.

    Another Canadian who lives in the US because of what? Is it the lower taxes or what else. So much for Canadian patriots. We new Canadians who came from other countries to become and choose to become Canadians and then you have Canadian ice hockey players, actors, musicians or comedians, etc. who live in the US and they are still treated like they were the local
    aristocrats. But we new Canadians were treated like we were second class citizens especially if you did not come from a first English or French language country. We were called "functionally illiterate"and therefore dismissed as fully functional Canadians. But those Canadians, moving to the US because of their sport, music, actors, comedians, etc. were treated quiet differently than us who choosed to come to Canada, pay taxes, for healthcare, etc. And yet you out the Canadians who still live in the US as Canadian heroes but not as people taking care of themselves and profit from the US. You Ex-pats should treat us new-comers a lot better because we were choosing living in Canada rather than in the US. And yet we are treated as not Canadian enough but Waiyne Gretzky is more Canadian than we are who choose Canada as their home.

      He does. Just look back at Colbert Report clips from say 2008 and in ten years there is no difference.

    For the record, Colbert's name is pronounced with a hard T. He's adopted the French pronunciation to appear haughty.

    I'm sorry, but Short has nothing nice to say. He's very negative. Like he's been done wrong somehow.

    Martin Short is a class act .
    He doesn’t appear to Be your typical Hollywood freak “
    but rather a very funny ,
    very down to earth kinda guy.
    I got the impression early in his Career but it was confirmed during a very awkward Kathey lee interview.
    He showed true class and understanding.
    A true professional !

    Our band played at Andrea Martin's wedding in So Portland in the early eighties and this little dude (Martin Short) gets up on stage and asks us to a play a standard blues shuffle as he sang an impromptu song about Andrea and their group of friends. We didn't know who he was, but he was amazingly talented and funny.

    Stephen Colbert: I love that you reach a wide audience. Your jokes are broad but your wit is as sharp as a needle - your aim is piercingly precise, too. Thank you for your voice and your broadcast. And Martin Short: "Paul looks different..." (oh, happy day: Jon Batiste, you're a cut above...) Never stop.
