Without Writers, They're Still Funny

Here's Stephen Colbert's take on the absence of writers in his first show back. No Writers? "How does that affect me?"

And on A Daily Show, (A, not THE. The Daily Show is produced with writers) Jon Stewart did his customary "W'sup, Stephen Colbert?" segment just before closing. Colbert spouted a long beard.

I demand credit, that was my gag!

OK, so it's the most obvious thing in the world. I still want credit. Just a little wink and a "Thanks, A Lot Of Gaul!" will do.

For being unscripted, both shows were extremely funny. I miss the biting and scathing one-liners that followed political sound bites, so there's still a reason to look forward to the settling of the WGA strike.
