7/27/11 UPDATE: (in response to a mention by Neil Patrick Harris on The Daily Show)
HERE is Paul Dinello doing THE spin move with Colbert and Amy Sedaris on The Colbert Report.
I was a die-hard Stephen Colbert fan during the Bush years. I stopped watching The Daily Show/The Colbert Report as the DVR queue got too long, but I still crack up at these clips. Stephen is a fearless triple threat—comedian, singer, and dancer. I love it when he does a spin move. Brains, wit, rhythm, and passion? He is a perfect man.
*On The Daily Show, reliving his memories as a figure skater (video link) – eyebrow and spin move.
*On The Colbert Report, this is comedy gold: Stephen really feels Prince’s “When Doves Cry.”
*On The Colbert Report: a dance-off with Korean pop superstar Rain (video link), who is Colbert’s rival for the top write-in vote for Time’s Top 100 Most Influential People in the World. See his hilarious take on Rain’s music video here.
*This montage features on location clips of Stephen dancing behind Congressman Barney Frank, dancing at a gay club in New York City, and dancing with random attendees at the Democratic National Convention.
*Another montage, featuring clips from Stephen’s 80s music video (guyliner!) and Stephen’s take on Ellen and Conan’s dance moves.
