Stephen Colbert Spits Water On Jon Stewart And That's Not Even The Weird Part

The former "Daily Show" host avoided talking politics, but hilariously presented a trailer for his new comedy.

Jon Stewart emerged from under Stephen Colbert’s desk on “The Late Show” Thursday, but maybe he should have stayed there.

Colbert, in a fit of faux shock that Steve Carell was cast in Stewart’s new political comedy “Irresistible” and not him, spit water in Stewart’s face.

Undaunted, Stewart introduced a trailer for the upcoming film, which he wrote and directed, in a bit with old pal Colbert that might have even been better than the preview. He began reciting the plotline to “Home Alone” and segued into a clip from “Cats” ― “something from my private porn collection,” Stewart said.

The whole segment, which may have been pretaped nearly a week earlier, was free of real-life politics. But thankfully, it was not humor-free.

As Colbert caressed Stewart’s face to see if he was really there, Stewart cracked: “I’m not a ghost, Stephen. I’m an older man with paper-thin skin.”
