This weekend I somehow drunkenly stumbled into Oprah's Next Chapter on the OWN network, which under normal circumstances is deeply, and intrusively annoying. HOWEVER!

We don't get a chance to see much of Colbert outside his persona, so this was both funny and interesting. Here's a clip where he explains the origin of the Stephen Colbert character. (That's Colbert, not Colbert.)
