After some consideration, the city of Colbert will not invite Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, to its Fourth of July parade.
Mayor Chris didn’t think Colbert’s style was, you know, right for his little corner of the nation:
“His satire is probably something that we didn’t feel suited our small-town atmosphere,” said Colbert Mayor Chris Peck.
But here is who they have invited in: Hee Haw star Archie Campbell and fertilizer salesman-turned-comedian Jerry Clower. That is so Mayberry ago, guys.
Sadly, Stephen’s just too cutting edge. Or cutting. Or Edgy. Whatever he is, he’s been rejected. Or maybe just misunderstood.
Tomorrow night. 11:30 pm. Comedy Central. Be there.
