Tomorrow: Stephen Colbert talks about doing his show, The Colbert Report, in character:
And so I look at every guest as a guest — they’re a guest in my home, and I am grateful that they would come here. And I hope people have a good time, and if they don’t, it’s my fault, or rather, it’s my responsibility. Because if I actually get into an aggressive discussion with a guest about something … and I’m expressing my disagreement satirically, and if they don’t enjoy that, that’s OK, because I have a responsibility for what I’m saying.
Colbert also stars in the Stephen Sondheim musical Company, airing 11/8 on the PBS “Great Performances” series.
