Stephen Colbert’s Flashback to His Final ‘Daily Show’ Reminds Us Things Change for the Hilarious

"Daily Show" Flashback
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, YouTube

Stephen Colbert decided to go back to where it all began.

The Late Show host did some good ol’ fashioned reminiscing last night when he fondly recalled his final day on The Daily Show back in 2005, thanks, in part, to the help of some co-workers who you may recognize.

Samantha Bee, Rob Corddry, Ed Helms, John Oliver (as Steve Carell) and Jon Stewart re-enacted that fateful final day, complete with jokes that weren’t jokes at the time (a president better for comedy than George W. Bush? Bill Cosby and Jared from Subway will never let you down?), but are hilarious in retrospect.

Considering the tumult in America right now, it was a nice trip down memory lane for those of us who watched The Daily Show.
