Stephen Colbert achieves new heights at the Rally to Restore Sanity afterparty
After a long day rallying on the Mall Saturday, Stephen Colbert still had the energy and agility to clamber to the top of a marble fountain at the Comedy Central after-party at Old Ebbitt Grill. How'd he get up there? Even stunned witnesses couldn't say for sure. Colbert was the de facto host for the afternoon gathering -- Jon Stewart went back to NYC after the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear -- and after entering to applause around 6 p.m. (trailed by two Comedy Central bodyguards who looked like low-budget Secret Service agents), he climbed the (non-working) fountain to thank all the staff and crew for their help. The 300 or so guests (noshing on crabcakes, sliders and shrimp) included VIP pals Rosario Dawson, Tim Meadows, Mick Foley, Don Novello, the "Mythbusters" guys and "Daily Show" players Wyatt Cenac and John Oliver.
