[AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN"]

THANK YOU, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NATION, LAST NIGHT I TOLD YOU

ABOUT DONALD TRUMP'S PLAN TO

HOST A REPUBLICAN DEBATE.

HE'S ABSOLUTELY THE PERFECT

PERSON TO DO IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD

FOR IT.

ASK DRUM.

>> THIS IS A NEWS MAX DEBATE.

NEWS MAX IS A POWERFUL

ORGANIZATION, GOOD ORGANIZATION,

AND THEY ASKED ME TO DO IT.

I SAID I WOULD DO IT.

THE CANDIDATES HAVE COME UP TO

TRUMP TOWER.

I'VE GOTTEN TO KNOW THEM.

EVERYONE WANTS MY ENDORSEMENT.

I REPRESENT MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

YOU KNOW, YOU JUST HAVE TO LOOK

AT THE WEB SITES.

BUT I REMEMBER JUST MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE.

>> Stephen: MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE.

AND THAT'S JUST HIS MAKE-UP

TEAM.

NOW, UNFORTUNATELY JON HUNTSMAN,

RON PAUL AND MITT ROMNEY HAVE

ALL SAID THEY WOULD NOT APPEAR

AT HIS T DEBATE, SO TRUMP'S

DEBATE IS GOING DOWN HIS

GOLD-PLATED CRAPPER.

SO TO FILL THE ENORMOUS VOID,

LAST NIGHT I ANNOUNCED THAT I

WOULD BE HOSTING STEPHEN

COLBERT'S SOUTH CAROLINA SERIOUS

CLASSY REPUBLICAN DEBATE.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

YES.

I'LL JOIN YOU.

I'LL JOIN YOU ON THAT ONE.

I DESERVE IT, DON'T ANY I

DESERVE THAT A LITTLE BIT.

AND FOLKS, FOLKS, IT'S

HAPPENING.

WE'RE DOING IT.

WE HAVE SET THE STATE IN STONE.

SOME TIME IN JANUARY.

OKAY.

LET'S GET THAT STONE.

OKAY.

IT'S GOING TO BE ON ANIMAL

PLANET.

THEY HAVEN'T RETURNED MY CALLS

YET, BUT THEY'RE BUSY.

IT'S WALLABY WEEK, THE WALLABY,

OF COURSE, THE GREATEST

MARSUPIAL EVER TO HOP THE FACE

OF AUSTRALIA.

SORRY, KANGAROO, YOU'RE

YESTERDAY'S NEWS.

THE POINT IS ANIMAL PLANET, CALL

ME OR DON'T.

I GOT A MILLION OTHER NETWORKS

INTERESTED, BET, OXYGEN,

CINEMAX, THAT'S RIGHT, ALL THE

G.O.P. CANDIDATES NUDE IN THE

CHAMPAGNE ROOM PUTTING THEM ON

THE GLASS, BUT TASTEFUL.

NOW I FEEL FOR DONALD.

HE CALLED ME LAST NIGHTMENT HE

CRIED.

WE TALKED.

HE WAS A GENTLEMAN ABOUT IT.

I GOT ALL THE RESPECT IN THE

WORLD FOR THIS GUY.

OKAY.

THAT SAID, HE'S A PUNCH LINE.

[LAUGHTER]

HE'S A PILE OF JOKE DUST COUGHED

UP BY CARROT TOP, CLASSIEST

VEGETABLE TOP PROP COMIC IN THE

HISTORY OF VEGAS.

WHAT I'M SAYING IS THE KING IS

DEAD, LONG LIVE THE KING, I AM

THE KING OF DEBATES.

THIS WILL BE THE FINEST DEBATE

EVER TELEVISED.

ALL THE CANDIDATES ARE INVITED,

INCLUDING JOHN McCAIN, BACK,

BACK FROM REDEMPTION ISLAND,

BEST SURPRISE TWIST IN TV DEBATE

HISTORY.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO BE

SURROUNDED BY ELEGANCE UP ON THE

STAGE.

EACH PODIUM GETSERS OWN

CHANDELIER.

THE AUDIENCE ALL HAVE DIMMER

SWITCHES.

IF THEY LIKE WHAT A CANDIDATE

SAYS, THEY TURN IT UP.

THEY DEN LIKE IT, THEY TURN IT

DOWN.

ALL SCIENTIFIC.

AND I'M GOING TO HAVE EXPERTS

FOR THE QUESTIONSEN ON THE

ECONOMY, MIKE GREENLAY, FOREIGN

POLICY, EVA LONGORIA.

GREAT LADY, NUMBER ONE CABOOSE

IN PRIME TIME.

MAKES KELLY RIPA LOOK LIKE A HOG

AT THE TROUGH.

I CAN SAY THAT BECAUSE KELLY IS

A FRIEND.

KELLY, LOSE SOME WEIGHT.

SO THIS IS THE MOST REAL ACTUAL

DEBATE EVER.

I AM ON THE SOUTH CAROLINA

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY LIKE WHITE ON

THE

[LAUGHTER]

YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW MUCH I'M ON

IT, FOLKS?

YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW MUCH I'M ON

THIS PRIMARY?

JUST LOOK AT TODAY'S ANY TIMES.

THEY HAVE SOME STORY ABOUT ME

GETTING A REFERENDUM ON THE

SOUTH CAROLINA BALLOT.

THROW IT UP THERE.

COLBERT PUSHES CORPORATIONS ARE

PEOPLE REFERENDUM.

LOOK.

LOOK, FOLKS.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE REPORTERS GET

THESE WILD IDEAS OTHER THAN MY

PRESS RELEASE AND THE FOLLOW-UP

PHONE INTERVIEW.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT HERE'S THE TRUTH, HERE'S THE

TRUTH: I LOVE SOUTH CAROLINA.

IT'S MY HOME STATE.

AND IT'S FROM THAT RICH CULTURE

THAT I GET MY LOVE OF LIBERTY,

MY PERSONAL VALUES AND MY

CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY ON BARBECUE

SAUCE.

I LOVE IT EVEN MORE THAN I LOVE

COLBERT SUPER PAC.

YOU KNOW OUR MOTTO, SAY IT WITH

ME: MAKING A BETTER

TOMORROW TOMORROW.

YOU'RE GOOD.

WHEN WE FOUNDED MY PAC NINE

MONTHS AGO, NATION, I PROMISED

YOU WOULD BE PLAYERS IN 2012,

YOUR VOICE WOULD BE HEARD IN THE

FORM OF MY VOICE.

AND YOU WOULD BE HEARD ON THE

ISSUE YOU CARED MOST ABOUT,

CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE.

AND, FOLKS, THEY ARE PEOPLE.

IF YOU PUBLIC A CORPORATION,

DOES IT NOT BLEED?

NOW, TECHNICALLY I DOESN'T, BUT

IT DOES SUE, SO DO NOT PUBLIC

THEM.

-- PRICK THEM.

FOLKS, I WAS THRILLED LAST MONTH

WHEN I GOT THE SAMPLE BALLOT FOR

THE SOUTH CAROLINA REPUBLICAN

PRIMARY AND I SAW THIS

REFERENDUM: IN ORDER TO ADDRESS

THE MATTER OF CORPORATE

PERSONHOOD, THE ENFRANCHISED

PEOPLE OF THE SOVEREIGN STATE OF

SOUTH CAROLINA SHALL DECREE THAT

CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE OR ONLY

PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE.

DO YOU LIKE THAT REFERENDUM?

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

DO YOU LIKE THAT?

I DO.

I LIKE THAT REFERENDUM A LOT.

THAT'S ALMOST EXACTLY HOW I

WOULD HAVE PHRASED IT.

IN FACT, THAT'S ALMOST EXACTLY

THE WORDING I SENT TO THE SOUTH

CAROLINA REPUBLICAN PARTY TWO

MONTHS AGO ALONG WITH A SIZEABLE

CASH OFFER TO PUT THIS

REFERENDUM ON THE BALLOT.

JIMMY, LET'S SEE THE REFERENDUM

AGAIN.

OKAY.

NOW PUT UP MY E-MAIL.

NOW DO SOME CSI STUFF WITH IT.

[LAUGHTER]

WHOO!

[APPLAUSE]

IT LOOKS LIKE COLBERT EAST SUPER

PAC IS IN THE POLE POSITION.

NOW IT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU

WHAT UNLIMITED... IT JUST GOES

TO SHOW YOU WHAT UNLIMITED SUPER

PAC MONEY CAN DO.

ALSO, SUPER PAC PAID FOR THE

SUNGLASSES.

SO I GOT YOU YOUR REFERENDUM,

NATION.

UNFORTUNATELY LAST MONTH THE

SOUTH CAROLINA SUPREME COURT

RULED THAT NON-BINDING ADVISORY

QUESTIONS LIKE THIS ONE COULDN'T

BE PLACED ON ANY PRESIDENTIAL

PRIMARY BALLOT.

REALLY, SOUTH CAROLINA SUPREME

COURT?

NO NON-BINDING QUESTIONS?

I BELIEVE THAT SOUTH CAROLINA

DESERVES THE RIGHT TO VOTE FOR

SOMETHING THAT COULDN'T POSSIBLY

HAVE AN EFFECT.

AFTER ALL, JON

BALLOT.

NOW, UNFORTUNATELY, FOLKS,

UNFORTUNATELY THE G.O.P. OF

SOUTH CAROLINA WILL NOT

CHALLENGE THIS RULING.

SO INSTEAD, CAN'T BELIEVE IT, I

TURNED TO THE DEMOCRATS,

SPECIFICALLY SOUTH CAROLINA

DEMOCRATIC CHAIR DICK HARD HART

FOOTLYIAN,.

I ASKED HIM IF HE WOULD

CHALLENGE THE RULING.

JOINING US NOW TO DO OUR SUPER

PAC'S BIDDING, PLEASE WELCOME

SOUTH CAROLINA DEMOCRATIC

CHAIRMAN DICK HARPOOTLIAN.

DICK, THANKS FOR COMING ON.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

ALL RIGHT, DICK, NOW, I HAVE NOT

SEEN YOU SINCE 2008.

ALL RIGHT.

I TRIED TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN

SOUTH CAROLINA, AND YOU'RE ONE

OF THE GUYS WHO GOT ME KICKED

OFF THE DEMOCRATIC BALLOT.

[AUDIENCE BOOING]

YEAH, YEAH.

NOW WHY ON EARTH FOUR YEARS

LATER WOULD YOU BE HELPING ME?

DOES IT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

THE FACT THAT I HAVE UNLIMITED

CASH?

>> STEPHEN, THAT PROBABLY IS THE

ONLY FACTOR THAT WOULD AFFECT US

HERE.

>>

>> Stephen: IT SEEMS TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

>> IT IS THE DIFFERENCE.

>> Stephen: THIS REFERENDUM

ABOUT CORPORATE PERSONHOOD GOT

KICKED OFF THE BALLOT.

WE'RE TRYING TO CHALLENGE THAT

RULING.

WE'RE TRYING TO GET THESE

REFERENDUMS PUT BACK ON THE

BALLOT SO THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH

CAROLINA CAN DECIDE WHETHER

CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE OR

WHETHER PEOPLE ARE JUST PEOPLE.

SO WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO YOU TO

PROVE THAT CORPORATIONS ARE

PEOPLE?

>> WELL, ACTUALLY, WITH ALL DUE

RESPECT, WE WOULD DISAGREE WITH

YOUR POSITION THAT CORPORATIONS

ARE PEOPLE.

WE THINK PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE.

>> Stephen: YOU ONLY SAY THAT

BECAUSE YOU'RE A PEOPLE.

THAT SEEMS KIND OF RACIST OF

YOU.

>> THE CONSTITUTION OF THE

SUPREME COURT GUARANTEES THAT.

DON'T THEY GET A TRIAL BY A JURY

OF THEIR PEERS AND THE GECKO OR

GEICO FROM THE JURY BOX IT SITTING

THERE?

HOW LONG DO YOU CARRY THIS.

>> I THINK CORPORATIONS SHOULD

CARRY GUNS AND GET MARRIED.

CAN YOU CHALLENGE THIS RULING?

DO YOU HAVE STANDING IN THIS

CASE?

>> WE HAVE STANDING.

WE FILED A PETITION THIS WEEK.

>> Stephen: WAITED A SECOND.

YOU'RE A DEMOCRAT.

HOW CAN YOU HAVE STANDING IN

SOUTH CAROLINA?

I THOUGHT THE REPUBLICANS MAKE

YOU LIVE UNDER THE STAIRS LIKE

HARRY POTTER.

>> WE'VE ASSERTED OURSELVES FOR

YOU.

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR YOUR RIGHTS.

>> Stephen: SO WHAT'S HAPPENED

SO FAR?

>> WE FILED THE PETITION.

>> Stephen: THAT'S IT?

>> YEP.

>> Stephen: OKAY.

SO DO YOU THINK THAT WE'LL GET A

REHEARING ON THIS ISSUE?

>> [LONG EXHAIL]

>>

>> Stephen: WOW.

YOU REALLY ARE A DEMOCRAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU GUYS DON'T

DO BETTER IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

>> YOU MAKE A APPOINTMENT

PERHAPS I OUGHT TO DECIDE

THINGS.

>> Stephen: IF YOU GET A

REHEARING AND WE WIN THE

REHEARING, WILL THIS RECOMMEND

ROUGH AND ALL THE OTHER

REFERENDA GO BACK ON THE BALLOT?

>> I THINK THERE IS A

SIGNIFICANT CHANCE THE

REPUBLICANS COULD PUT IT BACK ON

THEIR BALLOT.

>> Stephen: WHAT IF THE

REPUBLICANS DON'T PUT IT ON.

COULD THE DEMOCRATS ISSUE A

REFERENDUM IF I PAID FOR IT?

>> IF YOU PAID FOR IT?

>> Stephen: YEAH.

>> OH, ABSOLUTELY.

>> Stephen: I LIKE THAT.

ARE YOU READY TO MAKE HISTORY,

PEOPLE?

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING AND

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

FOLKS, PLEASE, SIT DOWN.

FOLKS, THE CAIN TRAIN HAS BEEN

PERMANENTLY DERAILED AND NOW THE

QUESTION ON EVERYONE'S MINDS IS

WHO IS NEXT.

AND WHAT FORM OF TRANSPORTATION

WILL THEY COMPARE THEMSELVES TO?

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHETHER

SANTORUM OR PERRY WILL BE THE

FIRST TO CLAIM THE RICKSHAW.

YOU SEE, THERE'S A LOT OF TALK

OUT THERE ABOUT JON HUNTSMAN NOW

THANKS TO A RECENT HUGE AD BUY

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

>> HIM.

>> THE WORLD IS LITERALLY

COLLAPSING AND NO ONE HAS SHOWN

UP WE CAN TRUST AS A

CONSERVATIVE.

>> WHO ACTUALLY HAS A CHANCE TO

WIN.

>> OUR GOVERNMENT'S FLABBY,

BLOATED AND WEAK.

WHY HAVEN'T WE HEARD OF THIS

GUY?

>> Stephen: GOOD QUESTION,

CRANKY OLD MAN IN CLOSE-UP,

MAYBE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD OF THIS

GUY BECAUSE THE AD YOU'RE IN WAS

ONLY RECENTLY FINANCED BY A BIG

CORPORATE SUGAR DADDY,

LITERALLY.

>> JON HUNTSMAN GETTING A LITTLE

MONETARY HELP FROM HIS DAD.

>> SOME OF THE MONEY THAT'S

GOING TOWARDS THESE ADS CAME

FROM JON HUNTSMAN'S FATHER.

>> HIS FATHER HAS DEEP FATHERS

AND IS FUNDING THE SUPER PAC.

>> Stephen: AND DADDY CAN

AFFORD THAT SUGAR.

JON HUNTSMAN SENIOR IS THE

BILLIONAIRE FOUNDER OF HUNTSMAN

CHEMICAL AND THE HUNTSMAN

CONTAINER CORPORATION, WHICH

INVENTED THE STYROFOAM FAST FOOD

BURGER CLAM ALCOHOL AS WELL AS

THE STYROFOAM IN MANY FAST FOOD

BURGERS.

NOW, FOLKS, I'VE GOT MY OWN

SUPER PAC, AND I KNOW CANDIDATES

AND SUPER PACS CANNOT LEGALLY

COORDINATE THEIR MESSAGING,

LUCKILY JON HUNTSMAN AND HIS DAD

ARE NOT COORDINATING.

>> WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THOSE

THINGS.

WE CAN'T.

>> Stephen: SEE.

THEY KNOW THE RULES.

THEY DON'T TALK ABOUT IT.

THEY RESTRICT THEIR DINNER TABLE

CONVERSATION TO THINGS LIKE,

"HEY, DAD, DO YOU WANT SOME MORE

CHICKEN AND DID YOU KNOW THAT

I'M CAMPAIGNING ONLY IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE WHERE MASSIVE AD BUY

WOULD REALLY BE GREAT.

PASS THE PEAS AND THE MONEY."

PLUS HUNTSMAN HAZLETT IT BE

KNOWN THAT HE DOES NOT WANT TO

BE SEEN AS HAVING AN ELECTION

DELIVERED TO HIM BY HIS FATHER'S

WEALTH.

HE WANTS TO EARN IT, JUST LIKE

HE EARNED HIS POSITION OF

CHAIRMAN OF HUNTSMAN CORPORATION

WORKING HIS WAY UP FROM HIS

FIRST JOB OUT OF COLLEGE, VICE

PRESIDENT.

PERSONALLY, I THINK JON HUNTSMAN

SHOULD BE GRATEFUL HIS DAD IS

GOING THROUGH A SUPER PAC

BECAUSE A PARENT WITH UNLIMITED

CASH COULD MAKE COMMERCIALS THAT

MIGHT BE EMBARRASSING, LIKE

THIS.

>> AMERICA'S BROKEN.

WE NEED A STRONG LEADER LIKE JON

HUNTSMAN WITH A PROVEN RECORD OF

ACHIEVEMENT, FOR INSTANCE, AT

JUST 18 MONTHS, JOHNNY STARTED

USING THE POTTY ALL BY HIMSELF.

HE'S A VISIONARY WHO COULD READ

BEFORE HE ENTERED PRESCHOOL.

IT'S NOT EVERY THREE-YEAR-OLD

THAT KNOWS THE WORD.

>> DON'T FORGET THE CHRISTMAS

PAGEANT.

>> KAREN, I'M TALKING.

>> HE WAS A LITTLE WISEMAN.

PEOPLE FORGOT ALL THE BABY

JESUS.

>> SCIENCE FAIR SILVER MEDALIST.

>> SO HANDSOME.

[LAUGHTER]

JON HUNTSMAN JUNIOR, THE NICEST

BOY.

>> HE BREAST-FED

EVERYBODY.

TONIGHT MY GUEST IS FIRST

AMERICAN TO JOIN RUSSIA'S

BALLET.

LY MAKE SURE HE STAYS ON POINT.

PLEASE WELCOME DAVID HALBERG.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

DAVID, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING ME.

ALL RIGHT, SIR.

GET YOUR DEFENSES UP BECAUSE I'M

GOING THE LAY INTO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

OKAY.

AMERICANS DON'T DEFECT TO GO TO

THE BOLSHOI.

THE RUSSKIES DEFECT TO COME

HERE.

WHY ARE YOU TRYING THE LOSE US

THE COLD WAR?

>> STEPHEN, THE COLD WAR IS

OVER.

>> Stephen: IT WAS UNTIL YOU

DID THIS.

[LAUGHTER]

THEN YOU HANDED THEM A VICTORY.

WHY DANCE FOR THE BOLSHOI?

>> YOU KNOW, I LOVE CHALLENGE.

I LOVE RISK.

>> Stephen: THERE'S NOTHING

RISKY OR CHALLENGE IN THE UNITED

STATES?

YOU WANT RISK, DANCE ON FIRE.

I'D GO SEE THAT.

DO THE FIREBIRD ON FIRE.

>> STEPHEN, FOR ME IT WAS REALLY

AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE

SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT AND

RUSSIANS DON'T DEFECT ANYMORE,

AND AMERICANS OBVIOUSLY DON'T

DEFECT, SO I SAW REALLY AN

OPPORTUNITY, AND SOMEONE THAT...

NO ONE HAS DONE THIS BEFORE.

I'M REALLY THE FIRST PERSON TO

HAVE DONE THIS.

>> Stephen: RIGHT, NO ONE HAS

BEEN THIS MUCH OF A TRAITOR TO

THE UNITED STATES.

OKAY.

YOU ARE BENEDICT ARNOLD IN

SLIGHTLY TIGHTER PANTS.

[LAUGHTER]

OKAY.

WHY NOT DANCE IN AN AMERICAN

COMPANY?

>> I AM CERTAINLY WITH AN

AMERICAN COMPANY.

>> WHO ARE YOU WITH?

>> AMERICAN BALLET THEATER IN

NEW YORK CITY.

I HAVE BEEN WITH THEM FOR TEN

YEARS.

>> Stephen: SO YOU'RE WITH THE

AMERICAN BALLET THEATER AND THE

BOLSHOI AT THE SAME TIME?

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> Stephen: SO YOU'RE A DOUBLE

AGENT.

YOU'RE GIVING AWAY ALL OF OUR

BALLET SECRETS.

>> THERE ARE AMERICAN BALLET

SECRETS.

AND I'M HAPPY TO SHARE THEM WITH

RUSSIANS.

THE RUSSIANS HAVE BEEN

UNBELIEVABLY ACCOMMODATING.

THEY'VE BEEN SO WELCOMING, SO

WARM.

I WAS KWAI SURPRISED.

>> Stephen: DID YOU MEET

VLADIMIR PUTIN?

>> NO.

>> Stephen: I BET HE'S A GOOD

DANCER.

HE CAN DO EVERYTHING.

HE CAN SCUBA DIVE, HE CAN KILL

TIGERS.

HE CAN DO IT ALL.

>> THE BOLSHOI IS VERY MUCH PART

OF THE CULTURE THERE, AND

POLITICAL DIGNITARIES ARE AT THE

BALLET ALL THE TIME.

I'VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET

A COUPLE OF THEM BUT NOT PUTIN

YET.

>> Stephen: LET'S GET DOWN TO

YOUR ORIGINS HERE.

YOU WERE BORN IN SOUTH DAKOTA.

>> BORN IN SOUTH DAKOTA.

>> Stephen: GREW UP IN

ARIZONA.

>> GREW UP IN PHOENIX, YEAH.

>> Stephen: WHAT'S A GUY IN

SOUTH DAKOTA AND ARIZONA DOING

BALLET?

WHY AREN'T YOU DOING THE

BOOT-SCOOTING LIE DANCE AND

EATING A CHILI DOG?

>> FIRST I SAW FRED ASTAIRE ON

TV.

HE WAS MY MAIN INSPIRATION.

I WAS OBSESSED WITH HIM AND WHAT

HE DID.

HE WAS UNBELIEVABLY ON THE

SILVER SCREEN, SECONDLY, AS AN

ARTIST, THERE IS THIS CALLING

THAT EVERYONE SPEAK UP WHEN YOU

HAVE... WHEN YOU LOVE WHAT YOU

DO, AND FOR ME THAT IS DANCE.

AS AN ARTIST I HAD THIS NATURAL

CALLING.

I WAS NEVER PUSHED IN BALLET,

FORCED TO BE IN BALLET.

IT WAS MY OWN DEDICATION, MY OWN

OBSESSION REALLY.

AND THAT'S TRUE EVEN TO TODAY.

>> LET'S TALK ABOUT DANCE AND

OBSESSION.

I SAW THAT MOVIE THE "BLACK

SWAN."

DID YOU SEE THAT MOVIE?

>> OF COURSE.

>> Stephen: IS THAT TRUE?

ARE ALL YOU GUYS CRAZY?

DO YOU HAVE VISIONS YOU HAVE

FEATHERS COMING OUT OF YOUR BODY

ALL THE TIME?

>> IF THE MOVIE GOT ANYTHING

RIGHT, IT'S THE FACT THAT WE ARE

CRAZY AND DEDICATED FOR OUR ART

FORM.

>> Stephen: ALSO IN THAT MOVIE

THEY ARE LIKE HUMPING 24/7.

OKAY.

DID THEY GET THAT RIGHT?

>> YEAH, I MEAN, IN THE MOVIE...

>> Stephen: LET'S STOP RIGHT

THERE.

THIS IS A FAMILY SHOW.

IT'S FAMILY SHOW.

WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A

PERFORMANCE BY THE BOLSHOI

BALLET'S D
