Keith visited The Colbert Report yesterday (in a purple tie of course).
Stephen was very patient and understanding with the recovering TV anchor. He carefully reintroduced him to the cameras and microphone. Though Keith failed the math test, he was clearly the one with the pants on in this interview.
In addition, Keith did a video Special Comment on Weiner and the Democrats next to his new set:
More photos from Colbert, thanks to @ReasonVsFear:
Keith delighted his fans by reading Thurber with friends at the 92Y yesterday.
“@KeithOlbermann that was a wonderful evening- Rosemary Thurber is adorable & charming- Calvin Trillin was hysterical (Calvin Marshall Trillin-a Jew! who would’ve ever known!) I do wish Robert Mankoff had spoken into the mic because I missed almost everything he said but other than that I enjoyed every moment and it made me even more excited for next week’s BIG PREMIERE!!! Maybe you’ll come back to the Y one night and do a few hours of “WORSTS”- THAT would be HEAVEN!!! Tonight was great! Thanks!!!“
And the Library of America, the publisher of the book Keith mostly reads Thurber from, also has a summary on their blog.
Keith with Rosemary Thurber before the reading:
The bad news, as you can see, is that Keith’s foot has gotten worse and apparently he now has to use a wheelchair (he steers himself, see review above).
It wouldn’t be a problem for his show, which premieres June 20, but Keith is supposed to go to the Chicago Cable Show this week with Gore, Hyatt and Rosenthal as well as going on the Colbert Report this Wednesday (6/15).
Keith also published a new written First Guess:
The two fandoms will merge again!
Cross the day on your calendar: the Colbert report website displays Keith as a guest next Wednesday, June 15.
Keith was once before on the Colbert Report on March 14, 2006. But this time he has to retrieve his essence which Stephen stored in the Olbermug. It was last seen fighting it out with the O’Reilly microwave TCR stole from papa bear’s set.
Last time Stephen ended the interview with “Mr. Olbermann, please come back if you ever feel right about something.“
Till then, have a nice Word Storm:
I said lust.
