Now the end seems real.
Stephen Colbert needed to got rid of nine years’ worth of memorabilia from The Colbert Report, so he does in the most American way possible: a yard sale. Check out the hilarious clip above from Wednesday’s penultimate edition where Colbert interacts with folks who came to the lobby of his Manhattan studio to buy awards and other expensive knickknacks, like R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, for $1 a piece.
And check out the video below from earlier in the episode. Here, Colbert announced the deadline for a chance to win his iconic desk and fireplace, as well as invited viewers to take a cyber tour of his set.
Parting will be such sweet sorrow…
The Colbert Report ends tonight — Thursday, December 18th — at 11:30pm Eastern/Pacific on Comedy Central.
