Sherman Alexie on The Colbert Report

***I was just talking to Jeannine about this and thought I'd share it with you. If you haven't seen this, Sherman & Stephen C are hilarious.

That is hilarious!

Thanks for that! Fantastic!

I think, "We'd like the blankets back" is my favorite line.

I wonder how much of that was prepared and how much was improvised.

I bet a lot of it was improvised.

I mean, did you see the sparkle in Colbert's eyes when he said, "And do you know what they call someone like that?" ;-)

I think he had a lot of things to draw from to keep the interview interesting (like about answering in your magical spirit animal...) but I think most of it was ad-lib.

I've seen Sherman read and he will go on and on before he reads and he's hilarious and witty and off the cuff. I think the two of them together are just a great match. They should have a show together.
