Stephen Colbert does one of the most hilarious tv shows ever – great social commentary. I have appreciated him for a long time, but nothing he’s ever done moved me like this video. On his first show back after his mother’s death, Colbert broke character for a moment to pay her tribute. He did a quick telling of her life-story with great humor and appreciation. It’s really touching. To be as funny as Colbert it probably would take a mother who taught them to do stage-falls on the kitchen floor! He says that if you like the show, that’s because of the great staff. “If you like me also?” Colbert said, “It’s because of my mom.” It’s great to see a moment of vulnerability from a world-class satirist. So, at the risk of being totally sentimental, listen to a great comedian say goodbye to his mother. Have a great Friday everyone!
