Colbert to testify at House immigration hearing: report


Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert is slated to testify in front of a House immigration subcommittee, and it's "not a TV stunt," reports the Daily Caller.

According to an exclusive report from Jonathan Strong, the host of the nightly Colbert Report will appear "in character" in front of the committee on Friday to talk about the Union of Farm Workers' "Take Our Jobs" initiative.

A spokesperson for the House Judiciary Committee told the Caller that Colbert's appearance is "a serious issue ... this is not a TV stunt."

If confirmed, Colbert's appearance in front of a House subcommittee will mark yet another blurring of the line between politics and Comedy Central's late-night political talk shows.

Responding to Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally last month, Colbert and Daily Show host Jon Stewart both announced rallies to be held in Washington, DC. Stewart's rally is being dubbed the "Rally to Restore Sanity," while Colbert's tongue-in-cheek rally will be titled the "March to Keep Fear Alive."
