Check Out Stephen Colbert's Epic, Star-Studded Send Off on 'The Colbert Report' Finale: VIDEO

Colbert

After spending nearly a decade entertaining America with his truthiness and faux-conservative flair, it was finally time to say goodbye to The Colbert Report last night. And what a goodbye it was. 

Having already become immortal earlier in the episode by killing Death during a game of chess, Colbert began his send-off with a stirring rendition of Vera Lynn's "We'll Meet Again" - joined in song by Jon Stewart, Andy Cohn, Randy Newman, Willie Nelson, Cyndi Lauper, Sen. Cory Booker, Henry Kissinger, Bryan Cranston, Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, George Lucas, Big Bird and Cookie Monster from "Sesame Street", James Franco, Arianna Huffington, Bill de Blasio, Jeff Daniels, Barry Manilow, Charlie Rose, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Keith Olbermann, Andrew Sullivan, Mike Huckabee, Elijah Wood, Bill Clinton, Dan Savage, J.J. Abrams, Smaug, astronauts at the ISS, and many others.

Then, in true Colbert fashion, the late night host proceeded to embark on a journey to eternity via Santa's sleigh - accompanied by a unicorned Abraham Lincoln and Jeopardy's Alex Trebek.

President Obama Hijacks 'The Colbert Report' - VIDEO

Obama

President Obama dropped by The Colbert Report's broadcast from Washington, D.C. last night and decided since Colbert likes to take a swipe at how he does his job, the President would take a whack at Colbert's job. The President then took over the remainder of Colbert's cold open. By executive decree, so to speak. President Obama read Colbert's pre-planned address, opening with “I, Stephen Colbert, have never cared for our President." The segment then went on to make good comedic use of the graphics that usually display pithy jokes next to Colbert's face. Mediaite notes:

Most of the segment involved the president talking about getting rid of Obamacare, while jokes about himself, Republicans, and even Fox News popped up next to him. For example, Obama as Colbert said that appearing on a comedy show would be below his dignity; the words next to him then read “but above his approval ratings.”

And when President Obama said, “Young people don’t watch real news shows like this one,” the words next to him read “Or fake ones like Fox.”

Watch as President Obama temporarily puts Colbert on unemployment and sits down for an interview that covers everything from nuclear launch codes to Keystone XL, AFTER THE JUMP...

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett Get 'Cheek to Cheek' with Colbert: VIDEO

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga sat down with Stephen Colbert last night who asked how the two of them got together (a charity benefit), how he saw past the "outrageous" choices that she makes.

Says Bennett: "She's the most consummate performer I've ever met and I've met a lot of performers in my lifetime."

Colbert also asks how they chose the songs that appear on Cheek to Cheek, which, given Lady Gaga's involvement, one might expect to be about a pair of buttocks.

The duo then got up and performed the title track.

Stephen Colbert is furious at U.S. District Judge Dick Gergel for bringing the scourge of gay marriage to the Palmetto State.

Says Colbert:

"A federal judge has ruled that South Carolina must recognize gay marriage. That is outrageous! When did South Carolina start recognizing the federal government?", adding, "This is the worst thing that has happened to South Carolina since someone found Mark Sanford."

Stephen Colbert Takes a Hilarious Look at Demon Obsessed, Anti-gay Buffoon Gordon Klingenschmitt: VIDEO

Colbert

While we tend to only feature former Navy chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt when he spouts some anti-LGBT nonsense, in actuality the newly elected Colorado House representative has a whole laundry list of other crazy comments that have nothing to do with the gays. 

In a new segment called "Mr. Smith Goes to the State Legislature Then Later Possibly Washington" Stephen Colbert proudly profiled Klingenschmitt and highlighted some of his more insane beliefs, such as his assertion that Barack Obama is possessed by a "demon of tyranny."

"Yes Obama is possessed by a demon," Colbert agreed. "And he won't even show us the demon's birth certificate."

Stephen Colbert Drills Andy Cohen About His 'Epic Shallowness': VIDEO

Cohen

Stephen Colbert invited Bravo host and executive Andy Cohen over to talk about his new book, The Andy Cohen Diaries. Cohen says he modeled the book off of Andy Warhol's diaries because he felt Warhol provided him a model because of their common late-night, celebrity-filled, pop-culture-obsessed interests.

Cohen_colbertAsked Colbert: "There are so many challenges you face in this book. You fall asleep during your massages. Your local dry cleaners change management without warning. You're trying to get to Fire Island but for some reason West 12th street is closed. Where do you find the courage to go on, Andy Cohen?"

Among the moments of the book up for discussion was an evening Cohen spent with Lady Gaga and 17-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai trying to eavesdrop on their conversation.

Asks Colbert: "Was she trying to invite Malala to be a 'little monster' whereas Malala actually lives in a country full of actual monsters?"
