Every holiday season, we enjoy a Comedy Central musical extravaganza, South Park‘s “Mr. Hankey’s Christmas Classics”. Few things get our minds off fruitcake and hanging out with distant relatives like a chorus of angels berating Eric Cartman for botching the lyrics of “O, Holy Night.”
While it’s a touch early in the season, we’re hoping to add to the cynical Christmas canon tonight with Comedy Central’s new special, “A Colbert Christmas.” We just misread the description of a debate on the merits between naughty and nice as a debate between the merits of nerdy and nice. While we think that would be more fun, we think Stephen’s version is likely to be a hoot, too. Forget the star-studded guest list (including Feist, Willie Nelson, and Elvis Costello)–the best singer on this show might be Stephen Colbert himself. Tonight on Comedy Central at 10 Eastern and Pacific.
