'The Colbert Report' to tape in the Persian Gulf. Stephen is ready.

Posted on

Comedy Central’s Colbert Report will tape a week’s worth of shows in the Persian Gulf while on a USO entertainment tour, Stephen Colbert has announced. Though he couldn’t reveal when or where — “All I will say is that there there will be sand, and people who wish we would leave” — he did joke that tickets were still available at GoArmy.com. “The Colbert Report will be the first TV show in USO history to produce more than one episode in a combat zone,” Comedy Central proudly states in a press release. I suppose the network does have reason to boast. After all, it groomed Colbert for this moment years ago. Watch the classic Daily Show clip below:
