Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.
Hey there Hubsters! Hopefully everyone’s holiday season (and, ahem, final exams) are going well! Thanks to Katt for covering for me while I wrote some papers last weekend. The final week of shows for the year is chock-full of guests, as it is also Christmas Carol Week. The regular guests this week include Buzzfeed CEO Jonah Peretti, Alpha House creator Gary Trudeau, and actors Keanu Reeves and Ben Stiller, while a whole host of special musical guests include Gregg Allman, The National, Cyndi Lauper, Alan Cummings, Aaron Neville, MusicCorps, and Blind Boys of Alabama join Stephen for Carol Week. Have you got a favourite Christmas Carol or tradition you’re hoping to see this week? Let us know in the comments.
Jon’s guests this week are filmmaker Haifaa Al Mansour, businessman Erik Prince, the Anchorman cast and comedic actor Jonah Hill. Sounds like quite a week for The Daily Show too!
