Better Know a Guest: May 31st – June 3rd (Inaugural Edition)

Hello… Hubsters? Hubbles? The Hub? My HUmBle friends of the HUmBle host?—

Welcome back, Sailor Stephen—and welcome to our new COLBERT NEWS HUB blog, freshly launched post-Memorial Day . While we can never replace our beloved No Fact Zone, I think we will find our own special path as the blog develops, and most important, that we can continue to supply you with the latest Colbert news and a space for discussing our favorite comedy host.

“Better Know a Guest” is of course very similar to the Fantasy Colbert League, but there will be some differences. No regular “fracts” for one, unless some really unusual tidbit pops up. It will generally be shorter, and I’m going to take official websites, twitter links, trailers, and book links and list them together after a brief bio. Plus, since Stephen’s fans tend to love Jon (as Stephen himself does), there will also be a section at the end of the weekly post called “And Now, Let’s Check In With Our Good Friend, Jon Stewart,” which will list his guests with a link or two. But things are in a state of transformation and flux right now, so if there’s anything  about our guests that I’m not including and that you’d like to see, just let me know! I’m eager to have this section evolve. 

This is a short week, and it opens with a guest whose recent visit was postponed. For him, I’m using the same bio I wrote for the FCL. I think it makes a bittersweet transition from the old to the new. Read more…
