I like the real Colbert much more than I liked the character he played for 10 years on The Colbert Report. The character got boring for me. The real Stephen seems like a genuinely nice guy with more than his fair share of talent.
I also like Colbert’s singing better than Gordon Gano’s. I’m not a fan of the nasally voice, which also explains why I’m not a Smashing Pumpkins fan.
Bonus points for the BBQ drums.
