'Daily Show' reunion takes place on 'Late Show'

'The Daily Show' gang is reuniting on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'

'The Daily Show' gang is reuniting on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'

There couldn't be better timing for a gathering of comedians skilled at skewering the pampered, the pompous and the political.

But ultimately, Colbert said, he did not have any regrets.

"There comes a time when a man has to do something completely different", he said to himself.

One of the more unpleasant interview subjects for Samantha Bee was a guy who claimed that homosexuals made him physically ill. During those early months, when Colbert was struggling to get viewers, a rare appearance meant a nice ratings boost.

"Guess I'm realizing one day you'll all spread your wings and leave me and all I'll have left of you is your yogurts". "I mean, it's insane", Helms said. 'It's like Beyonce leaving Destiny's Child.

Corddry even hung up a poster of his favorite comedians: Bill Cosby andJ ared from Subway. Everyone was in the house: Rob Corddry, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Ed Helms and of course Jon Stewart. "That I do, but might I say".

The guests also reminisced the days when they were all correspondents for "The Daily Show" and faced hardships while being on assignments.

Colbert asked Stewart, who now lives on a farm, if he misses hosting a nightly talk show. "It looks fake. It looks like a morning show right now".

U.S. troops not disappointed with scaled-down 'Balikatan'
Opening rites for the " Balikatan " or "Shoulder-to-Shoulder" exercises were led by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and U.S. The 11-day joint training exercise between Filipino and American troops was opened at Camp Aguinaldo by exercise directors Lt.

Bee added: "Or a Wednesday at 10:30?"

Less than one minute into a reunion between him and five of his most famous former Daily Show correspondents, Jon Stewart says, "I think the thing I'm proudest of, from The Daily Show was the diversity". "You have a potty mouth". Oliver hosts the HBO show "Last Week Tonight", while Helms and Corddry have shifted to successful film and TV careers.

To start the segment, Stewart acted as though he were upset with Colbert, telling him he had "a pottymouth". Because you used to, you know, talk about bullsh*t. "Now you literally shovel it".

"When it was announced you were going to be the person... they didn't tell anyone on staff that Jon was going to be the new host, they just announced a press conference", Colbert said. "The things you say, even they're crass, or even if they in some ways are not respectful enough to the office of the presidency - we can insult".

Stewart continued: "It's the difference between insult and injury".

"I learned it from you, Dad", Colbert grinned, smoothing over the reference before they could fully get into the fact that The Late Show host recently became the subject of an FCC complaint because he cracked a particularly explicit joke about Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

"This really does look like a group of students coming back to see Mr. Holland", Stewart said. It features a lot of amusing foreshadowing, such as Rob Corddry naming Bill Cosby and Jared Fogle as his biggest heroes.

"I'm not comfortable", he facetiously confessed leaning away from his former Daily Show cohort. "The place was being run by a guy who was doing the same thing", Roger Ailes, Stewart pointed out.
