Jon Stewart + Stephen Colbert Open Their Shows With Support for Boston [VIDEOS]

Jon Stewart Stephen Colbert
Comedy Central (2)

The political funnymen of Comedy Central, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, had a slightly (but not completely) somber approach to their show openers last night (April 16) in response to those horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Stewart was a man of few words, saying that he refused to cross-reference so many other events of a “similar ilk,” so instead he simply said, “To Boston, thank you. Thank you for once again in the face of gross humanity inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity and the people of this country.”

While Stewart had warm, touchy-feely things to say about the sibling rivalry between New York City and Boston, Colbert had a different spin on things, including a few words for the attacker or attackers.

He said it was a bad idea to mess with Boston because it was full of “people who run 26 miles on their days off until their nipples are raw. For fun.” Some of whom — even after running the marathon — ran an additional two miles to the hospital to donate their blood.

Check out the videos below to get your feelings for humanity pumping again.
