"Watched this on Comedy Central and can't wait to get the DVD. We loved the old variety show format (much like the Bing Crosby and Andy Williams Christmas specials from the '70s), right down to the canned applause every time a guest is introduced. Good variety of musical guests, too. And how can you not love a show that has the world's filthiest ode to nutmeg (courtesy of John Legend)?"

"I picked this up as a surprise for my family after Thanksgiving to celebrate the start of christmas. What an incredible joyous time we had watching Stephen Colbert and his struggle with bears. DVD includes many special features including a video advent calendar!

I had a lot of fun watching this, I bet you will to."
5 Stars for Colbert NO Stars for Amazon

"A Colbert Christmas is a hilarious parody that harkens back to the good old days when every celebrity under the sun had his or her own Xmas special with the usual parade of popular performers making their guest appearances. The plots of these specials were always convoluted and surreal and Colbert delivers on that with one of the strangest Xmas special plots ever conceived...he is trapped in his cabin in the snow, unable to get to his TV studio in order to tape his Xmas special because there is an angry bear outside of his cabin. While Colbert remains cabin-bound, an array of special guest stars somehow make their way past the man-eating bear and visit him at the cabin, delivering some of the most twisted Christmas Carols ever put to music as means of helping Colbert cope with his dire circumstances. What follows is one of the funniest, bizarre and insane Christmas shows ever to come along since South Park introduced the world to A Woodland Critters Christmas. If there is anything negative to be said on the subject of A Colbert Christmas it is that Amazon.com promised I would get this DVD by December 10, 2008 and have now informed me that I will not be getting it until AFTER Xmas. When I ordered the DVD it was in stock and I opted for 3 day shipping and now the item says 2-3 weeks for delivery which is totally inexcusable since my account order still says it is going to arrive on Dec. 10. My suggestion is to buy this from Best Buy or Target and pass on getting it through Amazon.com if you want it before Xmas."
Where to begin?!

"Where do I even begin describing how hilarious and just sublimely ridiculous this special is? The songs are hilarious, my favorite being the Channukah song with Jon Stewart. I love that mistletoe bit, especially with the bear. It's sharp and witty, of course- nothing less would ever be expected from Stephen Colbert or accepted by his fans. It's a great alternative to some of the sugary sweet Christmas specials out there. For the more protective parents out there, I'd probably recommend pre-screening it before deciding if you want your older kids/teens watching it, because there are references to drugs and sex and whatnot."
