Comedy gets weird when tragic shit like bombings or shootings happen. Always a little strange to combine jokes and bad news while the dust is still settling. That said, I thought Colbert was just about perfect with this one. Said all the right things, was completely on point, and was was able to be funny when discussing something not funny. Gave it an A+ as far as show openings go. Only thing I would have liked to see was a more creative Steven Tyler joke. Went with the safe “old woman” play, which is fine, but it’s always nice to see people think outside the box when ripping Steven Tyler.
