It’s been 10 years since Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert stormed Washington, D.C. with their Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, which drew more than 200,000 attendees to the National Mall. To commemorate the event – and engage in a little pre-election self-care – Stewart paid a visit to his former Daily Show correspondent on Friday’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The two reminisced about their 10-years-gone rally, and mutually agreed that Colbert – who at the time played a blowhard conservative talk show version of himself on Comedy Central – won: In the years that followed, fear reigned over sanity.
Colbert attempts to cheer his friend up with a hopeful Lord of the Rings quote, and it seems to work. But both agree that they’re ready for the nightmare of the past four years to end, and they expressed hope that Americans will be in agreement when the final votes are tallied after Election Day on Tuesday.
Make sure you watch until the end for a surprise.
