|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
I remember a long ago HBO special with Robin Williams live at the Roxy in L.A.
John Ritter was in the audience and chose the unfortunate option of taking Robin's bait of joining him onstage for some witty repartee and improv.
HUGE mistake. Ritter wasn't a half bad actor towards the end of his career (i.e. Slingblade), but he was a horrible hack as a comedian and Williams ate him alive onstage. It was extremely cringe worthy.
Watching Laura Ingraham try to keep up Colbert from last night's show put me in mind of that Robin Williams special.
