WATCH: Stephen Colbert Somehow Makes Turkey Help Hotline Hilarious
It's that time of year again. Time to stuff one's face with delicious food while reconnecting with drunken aunts, racist uncles and disappointed parents. Luckily, since 1981 the folks at Butterball have had a hotline for tips on cooking turkey to make the holidays run just a little smoother. "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert decided to take this goodwill and troll the hotline because, why not?
"I got a nephew who wants me to make Tofurkey this year," Colbert said to the hapless Butterball rep. "What's the best way to let him know he's no longer welcome in my house?" The bit was basically all improv, so no high-concept satire, but it's worth watching to get a sense of how Colbert can make practically anything funny.
