Update after show: You can watch the entire episode here. This program was brilliantly done, funny yet respectful of the troops, nice use of President Obama and, of course, the actual hair shaving of Colbert. It will be re-run tonight at 7:30 CST on Comedy Central. Colbert or Colbert and his staff can be amazingly clever, doing bits that seem so obvious, but not done by anyone else such as his business suit in a desert camouflage material, his attempts at basic training, the shout outs to the very enthusiastic audience of service men and women. Excellent job last night. A nice change from Jon Stewart, who while putting together a funny show last night, still tends to rely much too much on the F word for laughs.
This week Stephen Colbert's Colbert Report will feature 4 shows he taped in Iraq in front of the troops.
The first program airs tonight at 10:30 CST.
He appeared in his first taping wearing a camouflage suit and tie.
Operation Iraqi Stephen:Going Commando
Did the general Odierno really shave his hair to look more like a soldier?
Should be worth staying up for.
