front row at the colbert report
i got to go to the colbert report taping on monday, and it was an awesome experience! they hype the audience pretty good with some stand up, and pretty much tell us to laugh whether its funny or not, bc 'colbert eats that shit up'. he does feed off the audience though so it is important to give him the energy. sitting in the front row was pretty neat since the studio is pretty intimate, so you were right there and got to interact with him, like give him high fives when he does his crazy run-around. he did do a wink and point at me though, because clearly i was pretty excited sitting there, so hey i did one back at him. he is a very nice and smart guy and came to shake our hands afterwards and do a q&a. he says the hardest part about staying in character is being a jerk to some very intelligent people- true. we were told colbert is a real pro and the show is always one take, because he never makes mistakes. in fact they said if he does make a mistake he will kiss someone on the mouth. of course, then he goes to taping and .. messed up a line, no one got a kiss though. definitely a fun, free thing to do in the city though, oh and also military doesn't have to stand in line ;)
