Every night before the show Stephen takes a few questions from the audience. When the questions are “Lord Of The Rings” related, the answers are never particularly brief.
First Comment and First View
Haha Steven is a lord nerd props to him
Stephen please do this every month
He’s a Tolkien nerd. Hilarious!
LMAO at Stephen’s note at 1:41
My God … I thought I was a nerd but I think I found my master…….:D
I wish I was able to go to a showing now
I wish I was as passionate and knew as much of a topic like Stephen does with LOTR…
Damn Stephen is real hardcore LoTR nerd.
Feel like i am in kindergarten proud of my math.
I would love to see more of these videos when he’s not live. Awesome.
Yesssss Stephen!!! How do u know all of that? Nice!!!!!!!
Stephen is my spirit animal.
Holy shit. The microphones actually picked up the sounds of vaginas drying up. I mean, that was impressive Tolkien lore recitation … but DAAAMN!
Its nice to see someone else with a Tolkien obsession. I don’t feel weird that I know all the people he is talking about from the Silmarrillion.
Now you need to get an interview with Gandalf
damn i dont even think friday night magic players are this knowledgable on lord of the rings lore
Damn he’s such a nerd
I gotta start reading the silmarillion…
Well actually …
yeeeessssss!!!!! 😀 😀 :D
Can Steven please film a lecture or seminar on Lord of the Rings lore!!
I love this man so much. He is everything i wish i was
Can Stephen teach a class on Tolkien? I would attend that class for 3 credits
I would watch a YouTube channel dedicated to Stephen Explaining LotR.
Shiva cried all over the Himalayas creating Rudraksha seeds where ever his tears fell. He was also obviously the creator and destroyer… Tolkien’s inspiration for Nienna??
So who is running for President Gollum or Smeagol.
He should interview a couch of Tolkien characters for the show some time.
damn, I respect Stephen 3 times more now.
I feel like Stephen could write the entire LOTR Wiki off the top of his head.
My favorite character is Peregrine Took cuz Sam wise is a wee Bitch.
needs a segment of just this lore
WHAT A NERD!
Stephen. can we have a lotr podcast please?
You are now my god! “,
I think that’s pretty basic Middle Earth knowledge that should be taught in school.
How many times has this man read the silmarillion
I mean to be fair even Peter Jackson has said “Stephen Colbert is the biggest Tolkien geek I have ever met”
Stephen you nerd
I’m so proud I knew all of that!
I LOVE seeing Stephen nerd out. I wish he was my D&D group’s DM.
Stephen is the Pope of Geekdom
God I love him and his INSANE Tolkien nerdom.
This MUST become a regular thing. ALL the time! Stephen’s LOTR addiction should be encouraged.
lolz…getting all excited about it XD
epic! this is classic! so glad I’m subscribed when we see real life Stephen talking his real life preferences! Live is the way to go!
Friends, brothers, fellow Tolkien nerds, despite all differences in opinions, all different creeds and religions, I think we can all agree with one thing: we are not worthy.
I think Stephen has read the LOTR books.
And this is why Stephen is the best talk show host
Eragon fans, where you at??? Anyone? Am I alone?
I want Stephen to go back in time and tell highschool me it’s all going to be ok.
NEEEEEERRRRRRRDDDD!!! Pls do more of this
Damn, Stephen really is #1 knowledgeable guy when it comes to Tolkien’s Universe. I’ve actually searched around and read only a tiny portion of the Silmarillion. I could easily understand almost everything he spoke of, however I didn’t know the exact details of the “gods” and all that. Would really like to listen to him answering some more questions. I reckon he’d like to talk more about that in the show but sadly none understands even the slightest of what he’s saying.
Professor Colbert on everything Lord of the Rings.
I had no idea what you were saying, please speak American, it’s the only language I understand.
He is such a nerd 😀 Best late night host ever ^^
oh my goodness ?
I literally read this in the Silmarillion last night and now I am so giddy to hear Stephen talk about it!!
when he was talking about the valar and maiar I followed him 100% and his info is correct. lol I’m impressed
I need more of this in my life.
If he taught a Tolkien class I’d attend….every semester lmao
Brilliant I love the LoR.
@Colbert can you give Jimmy, who shows footage in you show some screen time.
I love it! Please, pleasepleaseplease do a LOTR Lore video/series just explaining everything the Stephen way!
Nerd! (That’s a compliment)
And then you get 4 sad bastards who downvote…
I understand nothing but still loved every second of it
Now I didn’t expect that. Schooled!
Sales for the Silmarillion just skyrocketed.
Jon’s face is like, “Not again…”
NERDDDDDDDDDDDDD <3 <3 <3 <3!!!! HAhaha!
But a lot of praise to Frodo anyway; he went as far as anyone could, so far that he lost the very last energy in is mind and body.
YOU ARE SUCH A NERD…keep it up! We nerds must continue to geek out and scare the regular people and eventually take over the earth…or middle earth
I totally agree with Stephen about Samwise…. ?
To anyone moderating this channel reading this: Make outtake and Q&A videos a regular thing. PLEASE.
I’ll have to disagree with Stephen on what he said about Sam being the best character. I mean, I respect the decision, but his reasoning is all wrong. He basically insult Frodo so that he could rise Sam above him. Sure, Frodo couldn’t get rid of the ring, but he had the ring for almost 20 years. He carried that burden for so long, the things he had to endure, and even then – with the help of Sam – he threw the ring. One of the reasons Gandalf choose to leave the ring with Frodo is that he knew just how strong-willed he is and that when the time comes he will do the right thing, something not even the great kings of old have been able to do.
I wish Stephen was my teacher
Oh my god! I love Stephen even so much more right now! And I think it’s beautiful that he mentions Nienna, because she is often forgotten next to Manwe, Varda, Ulmo etc. But her power is actually so interesting and touching. And I think he’s right about Olórin being not interested in becoming stronger compared to Mairon/Sauron or Saruman/Curumo that were schooled by Aule.
Ok, this became a Nerd-rant in itself now xD
yay… more of this
Is it weird that I want to kiss Stephen Colbert whenever I listen to him talk about Tolkien and Lord of the Rings?
Get Ian McKellen (actor who played Gandalf) as a guest on the show. that be awesome.
I guess when you are counting your money – you have to do something..
I love how he just goes on a long rant about lotr. He’s a passionate nerd, its adorable.
