Stephen Colbert Tells 'GQ' He Wants To 'Break Convention'

Stephen Colbert is all suited up on the cover of GQ magazine’s September 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 51-year-old comedian had to share with the mag:

On taking over the Late Show: “I just want to do things that scratch an itch for me. That itch is often something that feels wrong. It’s wrong because it breaks convention or is unexpected or at times uncomfortable. I like that feeling.”

On wrapping up The Colbert Report: “I no longer felt that that model served to address the national mood. We’re in a different place now. We can stop freaking out that the guy’s middle name is Hussein. What else? Our response to the horror in South Carolina is to take the flag down. That is something I didn’t think was ever going to happen.”

On losing his two brothers and father in a plane crash: “You gotta learn to love the bomb. Boy, did I have a bomb when I was 10. That was quite an explosion. And I learned to love it. So that’s why. Maybe, I don’t know. That might be why you don’t see me as someone angry and working out my demons onstage. It’s that I love the thing that I most wish had not happened.”

Jon Stewart is all smiles at the final taping of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Thursday (August 6).

The 52-year-old comedian bid farewell alongside special guests and correspondents Steve Carell, Olivia Munn, Stephen Colbert, Kristen Schaal, Aasif Mandvi, John Hodgman, Jessica Williams, Hasan Minhaj, John Oliver, Jordan Klepper, and future host Trevor Noah.

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band were also in attendance to cap the show with a special musical tribute.

“An artist I really admire once said that he thinks of his career as a long conversation with the audience, a dialog. Nothing ends, it’s a pause in the conversation,” Jon expressed during his final moments. “So rather than saying goodbye or goodnight, I’m just going say I’m going to go get a drink. And I’m sure I’ll see you guys before I leave.”
