This is 50 minutes long, but I think it’s absolutely essential viewing.
Stephen Colbert quite obviously plays a character named “Stephen Colbert” on The Colbert Report, and I think it’s quite interesting to realize that, in many respects, Jon Stewart plays a character named “Jon Stewart” on The Daily Show. Every so often, like here, or in the Crossfire interview a few years ago, he drops the jester act and lets you see the very serious, passionate, and concerned person behind the comedian.
Take the time for this. It’s fantastic.
