Original Correspondents of The Daily Show Reunite in a Hilarious Skit About Colbert’s Last Day in 2005

In a hilarious segment on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the wily host went off into a wavy dream sequence as he remembered his last day at The Daily Show. There to complete the memory were original cast members Samantha Bee, Rob Corddry, Ed Helms, John Oliver (as Steve Carell) and an elusive Jon Stewart hiding in the refrigerator eating everyone’s yogurt.

Stephen takes a trip down memory lane to his last day as one of Jon Stewart’s correspondents in the breakroom circa 2005. Starring Samantha Bee, Rob Corddry, Ed Helms, John Oliver and Jon Stewart.

Prior to the skit, Stewart sat down to talk about Colbert’s use of language.

Later in the show, the group sat in a “morning show”-style circle on a sectional couch to reminisce about their first gigs as correspondents.

They’re back like you’ve never seen them before… on a sectional couch! Everyone gets their own cushion when Stephen sits down with his former colleagues Jon Stewart, Rob Corddry, John Oliver, Samantha Bee and Ed Helms.

Colbert later caught up with Stewart as he was preparing lunch for Trevor Noah, Stewart’s successor at the Daily Show

Relaxing in retirement? Not a chance. Jon’s new gig has him waiting hand-and-foot on the heir to the throne.
