Old friends gather together on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert"

The late night host found himself at the center of an internet controversy when his monologue on May 1 culminated in a tirade of comedic insults against President Trump.

"I just want to say that the arrangement we have right now is exactly something we would have made fun of on "The Daily Show" because it looks like a morning show right now", Colbert said after everyone exchanged pleasantries and sat down on a sectional couch.

"Ah, my final day". "The same character, half an hour later, half a block away".

Luckily, Colbert's producer thought quickly on her feet. The gambit was a personal nostalgia trip, evenly split between looks back to the rosier days of George W. Bush's presidency and insightful discussion of the present day. "Oh, no, wait! Oh, no, now I'm on my knees-I hate that guy, I love that guy, but Trump did it!'"

Since leaving their jobs as "Daily Show" correspondents, Bee, Helms, Oliver and Corddry have gone on to lead their own shows and act in big movies and TV series. You were the ones out in the field, I'm in a studio surrounded by craft services. "I mean, it's insane", Helms said. And we went out to a cross burning in the countryside - as you do. "I'm all ready to hang up my poster of my two favourite comedians: Bill Cosby and Subway spokesman Jared Fogle".

"That's right, it's me - Steve Carell", Oliver said. Jon Stewart as President. The scene showed Bee entering the room, with a perm and a jacket, and she started lamenting about Colbert's departure from the show.

Indians-Tigers game on Thursday postponed due to rain
All told, the team turned in a +15 run differential without the arguably the best hitter of the past 20 years. Kluber was removed from Tuesday night's start at Detroit after three innings because of back discomfort.

Bee added: "Or a Wednesday at 10:30?" Stephen Colbert, 52, was holding a meeting of the greatest minds in political comedy (aka his best friends and former co-stars) including his old boss Jon Stewart, 54. It was a pretty rare sight, with three current late-night hosts (Colbert, Bee and Oliver) all sharing the stage.

"But you know he's investigating Trump's campaign's ties to Russian Federation? Now you literally shovel it".

It's too bad Colbert nearly immediately cut to commercial after that, because Stewart's point could have inspired an interesting debate. "Like, it's the difference between insult and injury".

The last time all five people appeared on TV together was during Stewart's "Daily Show" farewell in 2015, which featured most of the correspondents from the show's history. "I know there's one thing for sure - there's no scenario under which I will ever say, 'God, I wish George W. Bush was president'".

All jokes aside, Colbert did give credit where credit was due and thanked Stewart, especially, for getting him the job. "I've been reading about you".
