For months, I'd been checking the Colbert and Daily Show ticket sites from time to time with no luck. Around the time that I scored Conan tickets for Jeff and me I decided to check again, and discovered that they had just opened up about 6 months of tapings. Amazing.
So yesterday, I went with a few friends to get a dose of Truthiness. (And by February 9th I will have completed the Conan-Colbert-Stewart trifecta!)
The show was awesome. The guest was Philippe Petit, whose documentary, Man on Wire, I STILL have from Netflix and STILL have not watched. I should do that. Anyway, he was very cool and funny.
Before the show Stephen came out to talk to the audience before getting into character, and to take questions. I hadn't thought of anything clever to ask, but I noticed that not many people seemed to be asking questions and I really just wanted to talk to him, so I raised my hand. He pointed at me: "Yes, young lady?"
"What would you say has been the single greatest moment of your life so far?" I asked.
"You mean, other than this moment right now?" he replied, gesturing from himself to me.
"Well, obviously." I grinned.
There you have it, folks. What was the greatest moment of Stephen Colbert's life? Talking to me.
