Has anybody told Cleese he's a Adolf doppelgänger?

Colbert is probably the best US host currently as he has the skill to keep quiet when it counts and gets the best out of his guests.
DONT MENTION THE WAR! I think I mentioned it once but got away with it.
It would be refreshing if the 'Tonight Show' hosts didn't have to do 'orange man bad' all the time,
and could just be themselves more often

I think they rushed selecting colbert for this show.
Steven Cramsie
LEGEND. Full stop.

Jeeze Stephen, calm down with the make-up.

I hate when successful people are appearing to tv only to promote their work.
Peter Karel Kraus
Would you like an argument?
5:22 "It was a non-pitch, it was an un-pitch, it was an ex-pitch."

Bothers me that Stephen was the only guy who got that.

Has anyone ever read "revocation of US independence" (supposedly by John Cleese)?
Too bad all Colbair does now is bash Trump. He is no comedian, all he does is read lines written for him and his whole stick now is Bashing Trump and America. Total Fail-Loser.
Bill Woo
Can you BELIEVE that this gay-assed dogshit was chosen to replace the very Letterman himself???

It made this hypnotically mesmerizing topic too difficult to sit through. Sorry, John. You deserve better.
Did he call him "mythical?" As in he isn't real?
"O Lord... you are so very big."

Howbout a Rowan Atkinson and John Cleese sketch people?!!

Why is this man so funny. Even him talking makes me crease with laughter. And I don’t laugh properly often.

Baizuo extraordinaire Colbert would never have Cleese on now that he's a convicted wrongthinker
