  1. it took 45 minutes… as a deliverer of pizza, that's not a bad time unless you live right by the store. You think the pizza is just made to go when you order and everyone's just waiting around to send the made pizza to your door right when you hang up the phone?

  2. What a great interview and such an amazing actor. Transparent is such a good show (makes me cry so much).

    But then again… Arrested Development – there's always money in the banana stand!!!

  3. what a good guy. i remember when he used to come on the craig ferguson show and be the funniest sketch guest i'd ever seen.

  4. Tambor is really awkward in this past 5:30, past the odd bow.

    Stephen gives a cool answer to the "what is a pundit?" question and Tambor wants to latch onto the audiences admiration so he awkwardly goes for the easy clap by talking about how much he loves Stephen.

    Then he wrestles him for the book for a second, insisting that they show it while they chant.

    The whole exchange seems like Tambor was subconsciously pissed that Stephen was overshadowing him and his book. He seemed like he wanted to sarcastically say "no, no, show my book while they're chanting your name, go on, dick."

    Also, what a weird dude, Tambor, having kids that late in life, right?
    Kinda selfish. Kid won't have a Dad at his graduation most likely. Doubt he plays a lot of catch with him either.

  5. Not many guest can stun Colbert but Tambor did. So did Ice Cube yesterday. It's awesome. By the way when I say stun I mean make him genuinely laugh or throw him off his rehearsed game. It's great when a guest can bring out that in a host.

  6. 4:52 "… a talking anus"? Add way too much burnt-orange bronzer and a dead rodent on his head, and look out 2020!

  7. And I still remember him as the grumpy neighbor from The Ropers. The interview did get so much better than talking about the cold comedy weather 🙂

  8. Yeah you have to keep your audience cold and uncomfortable you should probably torture and abuse them so that when you make a mediocre joke they will laugh because they want to grasp at anything that will make them feel better warmer.

  9. What the hell is up with all these awful dramedies about assholes likeTransparent and Veep that get praised out the ass?It's really an awful trend.

  10. I wonder who is in charge of actually reading all those books and then telling Stephen what questions to ask about them.

  11. You, Colbert, are kind of funny for making fun of "americans": However, you, as a journalist, should know that the ENTIRE world uses Celcius as a temperature measure, and that "americans" are the ONLY people in the world to use Kelvins. So "normal" temperature is indeed measured in Celcius degrees, mind your agressive driven "american" ignorance.

  12. Jeffrey Tambor was great as Hank, George, and Maura, but to me, he'll always be Murray from Max Headroom.

  13. yes, we DO face that every day of our lives, no matter where we are (and even if we've got the "procedure")…
    i was prepared to hate this interview, since Jeffrey is a cisgender actor (once again, sigh :/ ) playing trans,
    and had put off watching it- but this interview made me cry!!! thanks for this Jeffrey, thanks Steven…

  14. Jesus Jeff is quick, he hides where he's going then bam, he's arrived at the punchline. He must have more than a bit going on upstairs, it's impressive to see how effective he is thinking on his feet, seated, but like, on his feet cognitively, not footularly. Metaphorical feet, inside his head. Not actual feet. Which probably shouldn't go inside someone's head. Unless you're playing Mortal Kombat.

  15. When is Stephen Colbert going to transition? Trump is president and anything less would be a surrender to the hate crimes of all the years leading up to the present.

  16. I appreciate that Jeffery went through the mall dressed as Maura. However, he must realize that this is nothing. He will never know what gender dysphoria is like, what being afraid of getting kicked out of your home, afraid that nobody will accept you, worried that you will be arrested (look it up, trans people get arrested all the time as well as murdered especially trans women of color) I wish that they found someone who knows what it's like. A real transwoman. Or even a cis woman. I understand that not all trans people want to transition, but if they hired a cis woman, they could use hair and make up to do a more realistic pre and post hormone surgery, etc, etc

  18. MEDIA BLACKS OUT NEWS TO PROTECT THEIR OWN:
    Media Ignore Bombshell Info Raising Major Questions About Motives of Roy Moore Accuser
    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/29/media-ignore-bombshell-info-raising-major-questions-about-motives-of-roy-moore-accuser/
    by Aaron Klein 29 Nov 2017

    Birmingham, ALABAMA — For the past two and a half weeks, media outlets across the U.S. have uncritically featured allegations made by Tina Johnson, an Alabama woman who claims that Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore groped her in his office decades ago.

    Yet as of this writing, a Google News search finds that not a single news media outlet in the U.S. has reported on the existence of court documents – first publicized on Sunday by Breitbart News – that may raise questions about Johnson’s motives in making the groping accusation.

    The U.S. news media apparently do not find it noteworthy to mention that the documents show Moore represented Johnson’s mother in a nasty custody case for Johnson’s then 12-year-old son, Daniel Sitz. In the case, Johnson was repeatedly painted by Moore’s client as an unfit, absent and unstable mother and was accused of taking her son from his elementary school against his will.

    Johnson’s mother was ultimately awarded custody in the case.

    One affidavit signed by Johnson’s mother while she was represented by Moore accused Johnson of having a “violent nature” and noted that she “has been treated by a psychiatrist when she was approximately 15 years of age.” Johnson was a teenage mother.

    The news media has also ignored separate criminal documents showing that as late as 2010, Johnson was arrested and pled guilty to felony fraud charges related to checks belonging to a family member. She also entered a court drug program.

    Speaking to AL.com, Johnson first went public with the claim that Moore groped her when she was “on legal business with her mother” in 1991. The website noted that “Johnson reached out to AL.com” to discuss her alleged experience with Moore.

    The website related that Johnson was “at the office to sign over custody of her 12-year-old son to her mother, with whom he’d been living.”

    Johnson claimed that, after the two met with Moore, her mother walked out of the office door first and that, as Johnson was walking out, Moore grabbed her buttocks from behind. “He didn’t pinch it; he grabbed it,” she claims.

    Johnson claims that she was so surprised by Moore’s alleged actions that she didn’t mention anything to her mother — even though Johnson described her mother as sitting next to her in Moore’s office just before the alleged incident.

    Johnson’s mother, Mary Katherine Cofield, had hired Moore, then a private attorney, to represent her in the custody case for Johnson’s son, Daniel Sitz. The custody documents, filed by Moore, refer to Johnson by her married name at the time, Tina Sitz.

    AL.com reported that it “located the court documents from 1991, detailing the custody transfer.”

    The website did not report on the nastiness of the soap opera-like custody case or that Moore’s client filed numerous court documents with allegations against Johnson. In one affidavit, Cofield stated that Johnson “has a violent nature and has been treated by a psychiatrist when she was approximately 15 years of age.”

    Another document, signed by Moore, stated that Cofield — and not Johnson — was the “most fit and proper person” to have custody of Daniel Sitz.

    Johnson’s son had resided with his grandmother, Cofield, since he was nine months old. Cofield says that, during those years, she provided Daniel with food, clothing and shelter “without any assistance” from Johnson. A judge officially granted Cofield full custody on September 23, 1991.

    In the custody documents, Johnson is accused of taking her son against his will. A September 11, 1991 affidavit signed by Daniel says that two days earlier, Johnson took him from elementary school “against my will and made me go to her home.”

    An affidavit signed by Johnson’s mother claimed that Johnson took Daniel from school “forcefully and without my permission.”

    Immediately after the school incident, documented by Moore’s office, Cofield was granted temporary custody of Daniel until the September 23 hearing at which she received permanent custody.

    Daniel stated that he wants to “live with my grandmother with whom I have lived as long as I can remember.”

    The AL.com article, meanwhile, mentioned in one sentence in the 18th paragraph of its story that Johnson “has pled guilty to writing bad checks, and for third-degree theft of property, which she said stemmed from family disagreement over the care of her late stepfather.”

    Criminal and court records reviewed by Breitbart News find that she was arrested on February 25, 2010 on the felony charge of criminal possession of a forged instrument and theft by deception. She spent one day in jail and was released on bond.

    The case revolved around the charges of intent to “defraud, possess or utter” checks in the amounts of $288, $129.96, $259.92, $300, and $170 respectively. She was also charged with obtaining or exerting unauthorized control over five checks for $25 each with intent to “deprive the owner of said property.”

    Those five checks were in the name of “W.G. Cofield,” ostensibly her late stepfather. Cofield personally appeared to file charges against Johnson, criminal records show.

    Johnson claims that Moore groped her in 1991 at his private law practice on Third Street in Gadsden, Alabama.

    Last week, Breitbart News interviewed Delbra Adams, Moore’s former longtime secretary and judicial assistant. Adams said that, in her 13 years of working for Moore, she never saw or experienced any inappropriate conduct toward women.

    Adams worked for Moore in 1991 at the time of Johnson’s accusations. Adams’s desk was right outside his office door at the time. Adams’ name was signed as a notary on one of the custody documents filed in Johnson’s case on behalf of Johnson’s mother, Cofield.

    Numerous attempts to reach Johnson for comment were unsuccessful.

    Moore has strenuously denied the numerous accusations against him.
