    Here is a great break down of Stephen Colbert showing his in-depth Tolkien knowledge.

    Tolkien features frequently on Colbert's show; there are a number of clips on youtube. Here are a few:









    I do wish he'd learn to pronounce "Aule".

    Also "Tolkien". :)

    Thanks for the clips. I'll have to watch his show more often.

    Meanwhile, you can enter "Colbert Tolkien" on youtube, and a lot more will come up.

    He may be second to the movies in getting people interested in Tolkien these days!

    Now, if only one of his guests would mention TTF. . .
