Stephen Colbert began his broadcast with this rant:
“You see, folks, when I Googled myself this afternoon, as I do every day at three sharp—I have a full, fibrous lunch, then, straight into the bathroom, Google myself till I come out—well, folks, I was horrified to learn that the Google celebrity profile of me lists my height as 5’10″,” Colbert said. HE IS 5’11″ and he doesnt want you to forget that!!
So Colbert threatened to sue google if they did not change this error. During his mock rant, Colbert also compared himself to Brad Pitt and Russell Crowe, height-wise. He also threw some shade at Matt Damon and Johnny Depp, who Google lists as shorter than he, comparing them to Wizard of Oz munchkins, as well as at notably tall talk show host Conan O’Brien, dubbing him a “circus freak.”
