Entertainment Weekly | Stephen Colbert on stealing ‘Daily Show’ Emmy: ‘Jon Stewart’s streak is not broken’ (2013)

“He invited us to have a passion and an opinion about what we were writing. And he wanted to make sure we had our own thoughts behind what we were saying. And it was from him that I actually learned how to write satirical comedy, which I had never really been a fan of. And he’s still there for me. I can call him anytime, to ask for ideas, to ask for moral support, or ask for the energy to keep doing 160 shows a year. And I’m the luckiest man in the world that he’s my lead-in and he’s the guy I can turn to for advice and for strength.”
