Stephen Colbert invades Letterman's monologue + a look back at his other drop-ins

Last night on Late Show with David Letterman, Stephen Colbert made a surprise appearance during Dave’s monologue, which, of course was heavy on Osama Bin-Laden jokes. It turns out, The Colbert Report host had to tinkle real bad. Check it out below.

The experience seems to have left a permanent mark on Colbert, who later tweeted, “Tonight really messed up my bathroom habits. Now I have this weird thing where I can’t go unless Letterman is around.” We only hope Letterman has a lot of free time to help is buddy out.

But this “crossover” appearance started me thinking that Colbert has become the king of late night night talk show crossover, wherein he’s involved in either dropping by a friend’s show or has friends enter his domain at Comedy Central. So I was all like (to myself, of course) why not find some of my favorite examples of this and share them with the Punchline Magazine readers. So, that’s what I’ve done. You are welcome. After the jump, check out the video proof.

Just last month, he dropped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to make good on a promise:

Then there was the Great Ben and Jerry’s Battle of March– in two parts, wherein Fallon (and Jon Stewart) showed up to The Colbert Report.

And remember this now classic bit of talk show host crossover? In 2008, Colbert surprises Jon on The Daily Show to talk about the beef he’s been having with Conan O’Brien. And then Coco, himself shows up. Good stuff.
