Stephen Colbert NEVER fails to impress. Last night, at the “prime time” hour of midnight central time, Colbert showed up as the surprise guest host of “Only In Monroe” which is a local Michigan cable access show on the public access MPACT channel. The show is shown on local cable only in Monroe County, Michigan.
Just with his famous guests, Stephen gives a clinic in the “art of the interview.” He interviews the regular hosts of the show first, Michelle Baumann and Kaye Lani Rafko Wilson. The latter is a former Miss America going back to 1988. After establishing that the pair are his “Hoda and Kathy Lee” Colbert breaks out the wine and the fun begins including a nail painting competition with Colbert.
Next, Stephen does some news, local style … and it’s as funny as anything he has done. I won’t spoil it.
Finally, the greatest public access host ever brings on his special guest, Eminem. Colbert pretends he has no idea who he is. They cover such subjects as Bob Seger, rappers who swear and a Colbert grilling him on “what has he done?”
But stay tuned for the clip from Marshall’s new movie “Southpaw.”
Then the pair go through the community’s local events for the next month. It is priceless.
The whole thing is brilliant and he does it with no partisan politics whatsoever. This couldn’t be more “apolitical.”
This is MUST SEE TV!!! It’s a long clip but well worth every second so check it out HERE:
