    I've never been to Burning Man, but have attended South Africa's regional AfrikaBurn event for the past 3 years. For anyone who hasn't gone/isn't interested in going, what Nick is talking about sounds like random dusty nonsense. For me - yes - it sounds like Home! Would love to go to Black Rock City one day!!

    It's pretty interesting that Colbert isn't going along with this so much. I thought showbiz types had to approve of basically everything wild and crazy.

  • Jake Matthews

    Burning Man sheds the outer layers of society off and allows you to experience life and yourself at the core that connects us all. The people who don't get it have just been disconnected for too long. This Monty Python bit says it very well:

    uh, christianity is a cult. "i wonder what father wants next". catholicism is a cult, the baptists are a cult, mormonism is a cult, judaism and islam are cults... going to a trump rally is a cult. you don't have to join anything or pay membership dues to go to burning man.

    Colbert was really condescending when he said that Nick looked troubled in that photo. What about you endorsing drinking alcohol like it's nothing, Stephen? Granted that psychedelics are not for everybody but they are way safer than alcohol. Don't try to make it out to be pharmaceutical drugs Stephen.

    Go listen to Joe Rogan's podcast to hear the REAL experience that Nick had on psychedelics. listening to both interviews will help you to understand the difference between reality and the things tv wants you to hear.

    • Aaron Richert
      Aaron Richert 3 months ago +7

      i mean it’s definitely because he was there to promote Big Mouth. also it’s because this is just a late night talk show, not trying to spread the word about psychedelic drugs.

    • Chris Mojica
      Chris Mojica 3 months ago +1

      Armin Norouzi notice how when nick mentioned religion he, said “sure I’m catholic” , denying god right on live tv

  • Sindollx666x (Heather/Sprout/Monster)

    Also you don't have to be on drugs to enjoy burning man. They also have awesome bars everywhere. Distrikt is one of my favorite bars with a DJ there that's only open during the day and they have blended iced fruit smoothies that are fabulous. Man when I went I kicked it a lot at the rollerdisco wish I could've gone this year perhaps I'd have skated with Nick Kroll!

  • Sindollx666x (Heather/Sprout/Monster)

    Seriously people have such a harsh judgment of burning man. It's an incredible experience I think it would be great if Stephen went. Stephen is rich he can 'Glamp' I actually think he'd really enjoy it. I don't know anyone who has ever gone to Burning Man who didn't enjoy it. It's something you can't possibly understand no matter how much you think you know about it, until you've experienced it.

      the fact they censored the word "blowjob" explains why they chose such a tame clip from the show.

    I wish he wouldn't have laughed so hard at tge cult joke (although it's hilarious) but burning man is intended as a break from reality that teaches you to question norms and think outside of the box. Its a beautiful concept. Even better he shoukd have mentioned the principles. It's a goal of mine to go in the future. I have a cousin who was married there. Its a place to go be free, be yourself, and be outside of society's normal mundane sometimes unbearable confinds.
