    Judging from the comments, the sleeping 😴 one hit home for many, myself included. Depression must be affecting many people. Perhaps it’s just the seasonal increase but the last couple of years have been rather trying.

    You should use that in a future confession: "I only do these segments so I can get away with drinking on the job."

    Stephen: You drink because you're depressed, because you have emotional trauma, it's not only Donald Dumb Drumpf, but something in your life I think, meditate about it, and don't eat animal products but the produce you throw away, you'll lose those extra pounds and don't assimilate the feelings of those mistreated animals, which emotions you're feeling because of the chemical that are produced because of the mistreatment are in the animal products you eat, wishing you the best, hero without cape, I salute you

    Hey Stephen I'm a true fan of the show but am curious, and to be honest a little confused, as to why you keep referring to yourself as a practising catholic. Especially since you also tell us that you DON'T go to church every sunday and participate in the Holy Mass. How can that be so? All the practising catholics I know do go to church, religiously, every sunday. If you didn't repeatedly make a point of telling your audience that you're a 'practising' catholic, it wouldn't matter so much, to me anyway. I heard you say it again at the start of this video and on this occasion I thought I'd ask you to inform us how you rationalise the two statements re: practising your catholic faith and not going to Holy Mass every sunday. According to those who know better than I (practising catholics), having other commitments isn't a weekly "get out of jail free" card. ps haven't seen God there for a while, is he ok? I miss the old guy!

    See liberalism or inclusive-ism doesn’t mean being areligious.
    I respect Colbert for proudly wearing his faith and also being a voice of reason and inclusion.
    He is antithesis to the Fox douchbagry and KKK fuckery which has destroyed the face of religion in the USA.
