Stephen can be goofy and silly on the show....but especially in a context like this interview, you really get a sense for just how ferociously intelligent and serious he is as a human being. He's done his homework on a lot of subjects. There's something a wee bit intimidating about his intellect....and I love it. I adore people who are in the top 1% in terms of intelligence....and I think it's clear Stephen is in that echelon. Much respect...

@808 Dream Absolutely.Most people don't understand.

First Name Last Name

The comment was not indicating that Stephen was the most intelligent person on earth and your condescending attitude is absolutely why people like Stephen are unique because he would never talk down to others, his ego is not overblown and he does not have a sense of superiority.


@J Whipple your hubris is wafting. Please, stand downwind.

ina salni

it's a weird time we live in when Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Philip Defranco, Tim Pool etc. deliver more relevant, exact and researched news topics than the actual news. Sad but through the tears of laughter.
sadly the intelligence and common sense is not that common 1%, while the rest of 99 just want to be right, no matter how dumb, as long as ''right''.

Mr. P

I see him as the opposite.

Stephen is both a brilliant interviewee and an interviewer. Such well thought out as well as thought provoking answers.

This is an excellent record of who this delightful man is in actuality. His intelligence and humor keeps us informed every day in these horrific times.
