I don't know if I'd do it again, but it was an interesting experience - when they aren't taping the show, Stephen speaks to the audience as himself, rather than as the "Stephen Colbert" character which is fun. He refers to his character as an asshole and says that guy doesn't read books.
There was a Q&A with Colbert out of character and I was going to ask him "Arwen or Galadriel?" because I figured he'd get a big kick out of it as a massive LOTR geek. But I didn't get a chance to ask.
My favorite part of the clip below is at the end - "the new Cirque du Soleil show - Rick Perry presents VULTURE" - the last word being pronounced - "vol-toor-ay."
