HARK! THE HERALD PUNDIT SINGS! Join Stephen Colbert and his friends--Toby Keith, Elvis Costello, John Legend, Feist, Willie Nelson, and Jon Stewart --for a yuletide evening of song, dance and nog-induced dementia (parental discretion is advised). Written by
Did You Know?
The back cover of the DVD release contains a depiction of the principal cast as Peanuts-style caricatures on stage, similar to the first rehearsal sequence in A Charlie Brown Christmas
(1965). Some of the more obvious references include John Legend
sitting at a piano like Schroeder, Willie Nelson
being surrounded by fumes like Pigpen, and Jon Stewart
carrying (and dragging) a blanket like Linus. Less obvious is Leslie Feist
being posed in a dance similar to that of one of the minor Peanuts characters. See more
Thank you, Father Christmas. You got me just what I wanted most: the gift of not being digested by a bear.
