    Colbert Day festivities

    Mar 17, 2007 04:30 AM

    Thinking of checking out Colbert Day on Tuesday? Here's what's on tap for the festivities. It all takes place at the General Motors Centre, home of the Oshawa Generals, which is located at 99 Athol St. E.:

    7 p.m. – Doors open: It's also the grand opening of Prospects Bar & Grill, a new restaurant in the GM Centre. The dignitaries will have a meet and greet there, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada will be holding a silent auction.

    8 p.m. – Opening ceremonies: Hosted by CTV news anchor Tom Hayes. There will be a replay of the video clips, and a special videotaped message from Colbert.

    Oshawa Mayor John Gray will then read out the Stephen Colbert Day declaration.

    Comedian Darrin Rows is scheduled to perform, and then he'll oversee the Comedy Network's Stephen Colbert look-a-like competition.

    8:30 – The Hockey Challenge: Shooter, the Generals mascot, and Steagle Colbeagle the Eagle man the nets as they compete in a shootout for mascot supremacy.

    8:50 – Two For The Show: Performance by this musical act.

    9:15 – Don Cherry: Grapes himself takes the stage.

    Fans will also get complimentary cake and cans of Dr. Pepper – Colbert's favourite drink.

    Go Colbert! Love him or hate him, he's done a pretty good job of rooting himself in as a pretty recognizable pundit - regardless of whether he's genuine or not. :D

    Well, seeing as it says he is from Canada, that makes him "not an american".

    Agreed. I honestly don't understand why he has such a following, as I've always found his show to be really boring. But then, I can't stand the Daily Show either...and I'm only a Canadian living in the US and not an actual American, so that might explain it.

    At first I wasn't a fan of Colbert but my brother was so I'd watch it with him after The Daily Show. It takes awhile but he eventually grows on you. I still prefer Jon Stewart but THE WORD is always good for a chuckle and some of the interviews are just great.

    I will watch the show. Though I love in Ont I won't be able to make it. I didn't like Colbert at first, but his interviews and jokes grew on me. The latest one where he says "If it's Civil War in Iraq, than President Bush must be Lincoln", I laughed till I cried.
