Anthony Bourdain On Colbert: Another Interview In Which Colbert Defangs His Guest

Categories: Screen Bites

The Colbert Report has some of the funniest writers on TV, but the interviews tend to make me uncomfortable. That may be the point, part of Colbert's send up of American punditry, but I still feel a little bad for the guests, whose tours of self-promotion always run smack into a starred-and-striped wall when they sit down with Colbert.

Bourdain, who comes to the Majestic in October for a City of Ate-sponsored talk, is no exception. He gets off a couple decent lines, but he's mostly there as a foil for Colbert's very funny, Olive Garden-flavored riffage. Enjoy.

Yeah. Hardly de-fanged. Bourdin's a bad-ass.


Very good. I missed this particular show but Tony gave as good as he got.
