Stephen Colbert offers a very sweet tribute after death of his long-time cameraman

A.V. Club - 04-20


“Sincerity” is not a tone often evoked in the world of late-night TV talk. But when it does arrive, it’s often at the hands of Stephen Colbert, who—despite his irony-soaked beginnings—has always known when to get real with his audience. Said real Colbert was in full display earlier this week, when he took time out of digging through the Mueller report or snarfing down ice cream with Robert De Niro in order to pay tribute to a long-time member of his team who recently died: Camera operator John Meiklejohn.
