When I went on the Colbert Report last night we just shot a few stills after the show. But a little more than two years ago I interviewed Sen. John Kerry (D-MA). And as part of spending time with him that day (sort of interviewing him and observing as he went from event to event) to went with him to his appearance on Colbert. And we shot some great video of Colbert coming back to the green room before the taping to chat with Kerry and sort of prep him for what he was in store for (very generous of the show’s staff to let us). It was the first time I’d ever seen Colbert drop out of character. Very fun to see if you’re a fan. Watch it here.
