Stephen Colbert, like many hosts, makes a point of personally warming up his studio audience before hosting the Late Show (you can see him tell the adorable story here of how he met his wife), and recently he was asked to recount the weirdest thing that ever happened to him on the streets of New York City. As it turned out, Colbert couldn't think of an incident from NYC or Chicago (where Colbert came up as a comedian), but had a story he wanted to tell from filming The Daily Show in Arizona. Out there, far from South Carolina where he grew up or the cities where he did comedy, Stephen had a chance encounter that helped bring him new memories about his dad.
