Best Joke on The Colbert Report Last Night

posted by on July 23 at 10:31 AM

Stephen Colbert, regarding butter brickle: “I assume thatís some sort of English treat made from candied lamb cartilage.”

Doesn’t look as funny on a computer screen in the cold light of morning, but it made Colbert to crack up and break character. Enjoy:

When it comes to Colbert cracking up, nothing will ever top this clip.

@1 I'm on a computer without good video access right now, but if that's the one with the banana, I totally agree, best Colbert ever.

@2 It is indeed the one with the banana. What makes it even better is the fact that Stewart loses it too, and Colbert even looks like he's tearing up from laughing so hard.

Actually, the best joke was him interviewing the Sierra Club lobbyist with the polar bear puppet. "Sleep lightly."

@5, naw, that's just the best joke this week, and the week's only half over.

Then there's the classic Ben Franklin interview, something along the lines of:

Franklin: "No, I died of pleurisy..."
Colbert (writing): "Pleurisy? I'll put that down as... French... syphillis..."


Yes, the Prince Charles banana sketch was one of the best moments I can recall.
