Really funny!
25 November 2008 | by Lee EisenbergSee all my reviews

Stephen Colbert, in his persona from "The Colbert Report", gets stranded in a cabin when he has to do a Christmas special, only to get visited by several acquaintances (all the while trapped by a bear). While I wouldn't call this Christmas special quite as funny as Colbert's show, it's still a hoot. More than an hour-long version of the show, "A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!" also pokes fun at every entertainer who makes a Christmas special every year. Stephen Colbert certainly does a really funny job. Not that I wouldn't expect him to.

Anyway, I definitely recommend this special. It constitutes a true dose of yuletide truthiness!
