Stewart has a very different delivery. It tends to be more based on sarcastic delivery and body language. And he raises his voice.AHMETxRock wrote:But all of that is unneccessary. I'm also going by a pg-13 rating on cussin here. Sorry. Little siblings can't get that exposure.
I'd like to see the two without writers. Give them time to prepare one day by themselves, and see who comes out on top.
Colbert is also sarcastic, but it is so much more deeply rooted. Right into his character. As is pretty much everything about his delivery.
I love both, but Colbert is more of a joy to watch.
It would be a tough battle without writers. Stewart has very good improvisation (the scene with him and Will Ferrell in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was nearly all improv). But then again, so must Colbert, to stay in character so thoroughly.
