On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert was toying with the idea of signing up for Steve Martin's online master comedy class but after Martin lured him in with the promise of learning about the comedic gold within consonants (read: kaka), Colbert was all ears. All Martin needed was a credit card number and just a few more things like Stephen's social security number, his mother's maiden name, the name of his first pet and of course a urine sample. Fortunately Colbert had a urine sample in his desk drawer ready to go.
Even though it seems like anyone who thinks Colbert needs comedy lesson might be a real jerk, Colbert handed over all the information that Martin needed and with the help of the deluxe in person package, Colbert turned out to a real quick study. After giving Colbert some tips on how to hold his elbow and what words to really pack a verbal punch on, Martin turned Colbert from a dull dimwit to a comic genius.
