Colbert?
« Topic Start: February 16, 2012, 05:38:12 PM »
The Colbert Report has stopped production this week, cancelling all tapings.  They aren't saying why.

Hopefully he's not in South Africa.

What's in South Africa and why do you hope he's not there?

I've read an "emergency in the family" and also that his mother was "seriously ill."  Just rumors at this point really.

Dave Chappelle reference

They're saying it's a family emergency.

Yeah, Chappelle walked away from his show and went to South Africa after signing a huge contract.  I wonder if he ever did anything to help out the show's staff who were left standing around.

Wondering if it has to do with his PAC and the FCC.

Unlike most Politicians, Colbert is smart enough to avoid violating the law.

BTW, nice to have you back. Been running at the crack of dawn?

if the man doesn't like you, he'll just rewrite the law to make you in violation of it

Good to be back from the wilderness.   Thanks ...   That comment about Cobert's absence was just a wild guess ... baseless.   I'm trying to get back into my usual presentation style.    :D    I'm still running.   I'm off this week so the running's been a little later in the morning.   I'm gettin' ready to head out now.   When I first read your post (I'm old and can't see very well  ...  the good news is my hearing is worse),  I read your post to be "Been running for crack at dawn."    For the record, I buy my rock in the evening on the way home from work.   Little place I know in Alexandria  ....  :twisted:

PS   Huffington is reporting Cobert's mom is sick:
