Stephen Colbert: some early scenes - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 28th 2006 8:01PM

stephen colbertBefore we knew him as a correspondent on The Daily Show, Mr. Noblet on Strangers with Candy, and later the star of his own faux news analyst program, The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert was just another sketch player on shows like Exit 57 and the Dana Carvey Show. Colbert starred on the short-lived Exit 57 with Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello, who would later re-team with him for Strangers with Candy. After the jump, see a younger Colbert and his future Daily Show co-worker Steve Carell playing waiters made sick by the mere mention of food on the Dany Carvey Show, and then watch a clip from Exit 57 with Colbert, Dinello and Sedaris that I can't really describe, except to say you get to see Colbert and Dinello makeout with one another. Mmmm, that's tasty.

Check out the vids after the jump.

I don't know if anyone can find it, but i was watching an old episode of Law & Order CI and Stephen Colbert played a forgery expert. It was a very serious role, and not to spoil anything, but he kinda was the evil genius behind the whole plot. To say the least, very strange, and kind of hard to take Mr. Colbert seriously...

Man... I so did not understand that last sketch. Must be some kind of high comedy that I can't wrap my feeble brain around. But you were right -- mmm, that's tasty. ;D

The Dana Carvey Show had probably the finest team of writers ever assembled: Steve Carell, Dana Carvey,
Louis C.K., Stephen Colbert, Charlie Kaufman, Robert Smigel, Dino Stamatopoulos.

Oh why did a Taco Bell sponsorship and bad time slots seeming cast the show to obscurity?
