The whole gang (minus Steve Carell, Josh Gad, Aasif Mandvi, Olivia Munn, and Rob Riggle, among many other correspondents) is getting back together.
Stephen Colbert rounded up an all-star lineup of The Daily Show alumni for Tuesday’s episode of The Late Show, including Last John Oliver (Last Week Tonight), Samantha Bee (Full Frontal), Ed Helms (The Office), Rob Corddry (Childrens Hospital) and some guy named Jon Stewart (Big Daddy, forever and always). The reunion, which is being billed as a “special evening of comedy and conversation,” is in honor of Colbert’s 20 years in late-night television. And to think, all he has to show for it is two controversies (and millions of dollars, nine Emmys, two Peabody Awards, two Grammys, a New York Times best-selling book, weekly pizza parties, and a role in The Love Guru).
Shortly after The Late Show‘s Twitter account shared the first image from the friendly get-together — Corddry can be seen telling a story or joke that Colbert, Oliver, Bee, and Helms find hilarious; Stewart, in a classic boss move, isn’t paying attention — Mark Hamill tweeted, “This IS the reunion I’ve been looking for.” That’s a big deal from the guy who was recently part of a pretty big reunion himself, which brings me to my theory: John Oliver is Snoke.
It makes sense when you think about it. (It does not make sense.)
