Colbert Report Comes to Vancouver

In support of Team USA’s speedskaters Stephen Colbert, host of the popular Comedy Central show The Colbert Report has come to Vancouver.

This morning was the first of two tapings down near Science World and hundreds showed up to catch a glimpse of the man who coined the term “Canadian Iceholes”.

According to the Vancouver Sun, guests on Wednesday included Michael Bublé (Colbert called him “Celine Dion without the white jumpsuit”) and NBC’s Bob Costas.

I didn’t get down there to catch the action (although he’ll be back at it again tomorrow) but I’ve relied on the social media sphere for updates and a few mobile phone images as twitpics.

You can follow live updates from the crowd by searching “Colbert + Vancouver” on Twitter.

    Any plans for a Canadian version of The March to Keep Fear Alive? There’s talk of several “satellite” rallies across the country. It would be great if Vancouver could join.

    And by “across the country,” I mean the United States. Of course. I am well aware that Vancouver is not part of the United States. Yet.
