Dan Savage Makes Stephen Colbert Break Character

As anyone who’s followed Stephen Colbert’s career can attest, it’s really hard to get him to break character. How that man goes out and embodies the character he plays night after night on television is beyond me. With that said, noted gay author/blogger/advice-giver/”It Gets Better” creator Dan Savage was on Colbert’s show last night and he got him to do just that.

How did Savage — who recently caused a stir with a New York Times article touting affairs as a way to maintain relationships — do it? With this exchange right here!

Colbert: Have you had extramarital affairs?

Savage: It depends. Is it adultery if I’m committing it at one end of a guy and he’s committing it at the other end of that same guy?

Boom roasted! Or something. Either way, watch Colbert absolutely lose his sh*t right here…
