Stephen Colbert on Building Community Through the The Late Show

CC | tv-pg
In these troubled times, Stephen Colbert has a mission: to build a sense of community through comedy on his late-night talk show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. "We are living in consequential times," Stephen says. "It actually fires you up because you want to talk about it. You want to get it out. You want to have a sense of community with the audience. That's what we want more than anything else. It's like we want to tell jokes and, thereby, build a community of people who can all share their feelings with each other."

Here, Stephen opens up to Oprah about how he sees his role in the national conversation.
