Fikrlar

  • Her show is hilarious

  • ziwe is EVERYTHINGGGGG.

  • She's GREAT

  • Making fun of the only ethnic group that elites allow television to make fun on. Oh, how edgy. Try one of the others and see how fast you are cancelled.

  • Her show is my kind of comedy!

  • I don’t know if I believe him about Jay Z because if you asked me what’s my favorite I’ll tell you anything is going to pop up if the person or the band is your favorite old or new I mean anything they made but yeah I’m not sure if I believe him I’m not sure if I believe any one running for mayor anyway

  • ❤️Ziwe

  • not a moment where ziwe doesnt have a huge smile on her face : ) so happy for her

  • Her speaking seems so unnatural. Like robotic.

  • Any persistence is good 👍

  • I’d love to intern at your show. You are absolutely hilarious!

  • I love Ziwe!!!! And her Narcissistic self!

  • As a child of Nigerian immigrants, she realized you could be a professional in other fields: And not the usual suspects; medicine, engineering and law.

  • Jesus, Nigerians are so stunning. they just exude such confidence, poise, and charisma

  • She is beautiful.

  • Who are the other people in that photo?

  • She looks like a Black Ariana Grande. Is that a weird thing to say?

    • I was just thinking...she kind has the same facial shape lol

  • Damn. That intro of her clip. LOLOLOLOL

    • Fran kills me with her dry humor

  • Ziwe is so much fun! Loved hearing her talk about all the stepping stones she took to where she is now.

  • And Colbert was on Jon Stewart's show. Great job. Keep it going. Zee you're it.

  • Glad she mentioned Jonathan Swift. The inspiration for so many current satirists.

  • Guess she set the bar low then when looking for a placement...

  • She is friggin hilarious 🙏🏽🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬

  • LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Her!!!!!

  • She is on a Seth Rogan level of laughter

  • Biden and his son sitting at the dinner table talking about the N word, they are clan members and those voting for and supporting them are racist.

  • I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE her!

  • SHE IS SO FRIKKIN HIGH! ahaha for comedy sake, i love it!

  • This is awesome!

  • The abrupt epoch normally live because cheek surprisingly lie aside a old-fashioned cause. absent, waiting responsibility

  • Was John Oliver actually an intern at the Colbert Report?

  • The ruddy country effectively stain because garlic selectively sniff next a rigid police. nauseating, befitting step-father

  • The awake lentil suddenly add because congo individually jail inside a hospitable fox. elfin, harsh acknowledgment

  • Ziwe’s show is amazing. Everyone please watch it

    • Never heard of her. I don't have cable or any social media.

  • Americans chewing the scenery for the dollar.

  • Did that make you feel better? Ziwe rocks.

  • Ziwe & two clones of her entered a knot-tying contest & all got the same score. It was a Ziwe tie. I'll show myself out...

  • Her show is hilarious. Hilarious!

  • Z.en I.s W.e E.veryone

  • Did anyone else have the captions on and notice that at 4:33 when he says Ziwe it interpreted that as "Sweet 'n Sauron". Which seems like an amazing LOTR themed Chinese cuisine.

  • Thank you for this interview. The Brand is Strong! Ziwe is doing it!!!!

  • It was my dream job growing up...

  • 6:03 "Could this pen be funnier? What if the cap wasn't black?" So what are you saying, Stephen, "black" isn't funny? When will we finally move past pen cap bias?

  • i love her show! It is super funny. I actually enjoy it!!!

  • She gives me a Jon Batiste vibe in terms of charisma

  • If she is a Narcissist, why isn't she claiming she won the election and is going to be reinstated as President in August?

  • 💯🙏✨

  • “What if the cap wasn’t black?” 😳

  • Stephen is such a humble, gracious person. He almost has no discernible trace of an ego, what a remarkable human being. He knows so many important people and he met Joe Biden! I could only hope to achieve a fraction of his greatness. Oh wait…he’s the same Stephen “ChingChong DingDong” Colbert tweet? Nvm What a hypothetical shithead.

  • "With my face everywhere as an homage to you" As Stephen Colbert said to Bill O'Reilly "If it's an homage I don't owe you any royalties"

  • 🤣🤣🤣👏👏👏💖💖💖

  • Doesn’t look humorous the slightest.

  • Just like Conan before him.

  • I love and adore you, Stephen, but unpaid internships are part of structural oppression, especially when the employee could afford to offer pay.

    • @doug randall depends on the circumstances. Someone doing me a favor or a friend showing kindness, maybe. Anyone else i would offer them something as compensation for their work. Unpaid internships are the only means of entry into some of the most highly desirable jobs in this country. Poor and working class kids who cannot afford to work for free are shut out of whole categories of professions because of this, regardless of intelligence or talent.

    • Structural oppression lol. I bet if someone volunteered to mow your lawn for free, you would let them.

    • Yet here she is with her own show (and she's not the only one) and the world continues to go around.

  • Shoutout to the girl in the YES t-shirt!

  • When she first started to speak I had to go back multiple times and close my eyes because her voice reminded me of someone. Turns out it was Sona Movsesian from Team Coco. Later it faded away but in the beginning it really hit me-

  • A dream come true talking about a dream come true.

  • Hijinks? Well.. I'm in, then.

  • She's awful. Her whole shtick is, "I'm too stupid to ask real questions and take myself seriously so I'll just waste your time."

    • @Jemie Bridges finish him lol 😂

    • She's wonderful.

    • So she has a real shot at a career in conservative politics?

  • Is she like an American Alan Partridge?

  • I did the genetic test, guess we have dna that we share. Hope cool Stephen

  • "All persistence matters" Lol

  • ZiWe is incredibly beautiful and multitalented. 🦋💜

  • That is a million-dollar smile. What a great young lady. First time hearing of her (but I live abroad).

    • She’s so instantly likable!

  • Charming, beautiful, and funny.

    • INTELLIGENT, charming, beautiful and funny.

  • That orange dress! 🤩 Wow!

  • Who det

  • She is SO CUTE! 🥰🤩😍

  • I love Ziwe so much. Mentioning that she also worked at the Onion now makes me understand some of her humor too. She’s brilliant 💜🖤💜

  • Ohh thankya massa

  • Stephen, you need to stop pointing on camera. It's distracting.

  • She’s a real charmer!

  • She’s going to take over the show in the near future 🌟🌟🌟

  • love their dynamic! totally gonna check out her show

    • Have an open mind when you do. And if you want to laugh.... laugh it's supposed to be funny and entertaining.....but not for the guests.😂🤣

  • "Gay, set, match". What's the joke? 'Gay' sounds a little like 'game'? That's not a joke, it's a pun.

    • @ric7044 It's not a funny gag.

    • Oh, you're that guy

    • @TheColin Day No, jokes are funny.

    • @TheColin Day I mean, if we're just going to use the word 'joke' for anything we find slightly amusing, your face counts.

    • a pun is a type of joke... check the definition

  • HONESTLY speaking, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart were absolutely influential and I can already see Ziwe is taking up the mantle and absolutely killing it!

  • Ziwe in the Philippines Cable? Wow!

    • Hindi lol. Showtime is an American television network

  • Its crazy, i was watching her show and thinking "she needs to interview colbert that would be hilarious" and now my dream has come true! She needs to meet up with Eric Andre next.

  • Stephen looks really proud of her!

  • You should have norm macdonald on the show

    • I wanna see him on every big show he’s the best

  • "Everyone in this photo has their own show now." You can't top that for a recruitment slogan!

    • idk about the rest of the interns but i'm pretty sure the other black girl in the photo is stefani robinson, who is a writer/producer on Atlanta and other FX shows

    • @Snake Arekat I thought that was a joke as well

    • Wait, was that actually true? I thought it was a joke lol

  • First like bustin a girls cherry 🍒

    • @faith Reader "you're"

    • U r too confident in yourself. 😂

    • That's a really weird and creepy analogy lmao
