Last Saturday when I was at The Comedy Awards taping in New York, one of the highlights I live-blogged was when Stephen Colbert hijacked Jon Stewart’s acceptance speech onstage, as he claimed the award for Best Late Night Comedy Series.

I wrote:

Colbert makes a rousing speech: “Tonight, you could go fuck yourself. Get the fuck off the stage. I’m not joking. I accept this award for every person who’s soul has been crushed by Jon Stewart the last eight years… If they can do it in Egypt, we can do it here. Freedom!”

But who needs typed words now that we have this sweet video. Check it out and be sure to tune in to The Comedy Awards in April 10.
