If you live in the great city of Monroe, Michigan, you may have already caught this. For the 99.9% of us who don’t however, you’ll definitely want to sit down for this one.
David Letterman successor – and all-around living legend – Stephen Colbert was the “temporary host” of Only In Monroe, a public access television show that aired only in Michigan’s third oldest community (and hometown of the La-Z-Boy recliner) the other night, because his new stomping grounds isn’t finished yet and he needed to do something. If you’ve ever watched an episode of The Colbert Report then you know what to expect: deadpan, sardonically on-point humor with off-kilter non sequiturs.
After interviewing the show’s normal hosts and taking fans on brief-yet-exciting non-tours of the suburb’s goings-on, Stephen would then sit with “local Michigander who is making a name for himself in the competitive world of music:” Marshall Mathers. The two then proceed to sing medleys of Michigan-reared artists, talk Will Smith, Em’s reputation as a “clean” rapper, and just a variety of randomly off-the-wall topics that’s equal parts confusing and hilarious. I’d suggest you watch the entire thing, but for those who just want to see the Slim Shady interview skip to the 22 minute mark instead.
