"Colbert Report" headed to the Persian Gulf

When Stephen Colbert made a comment about doing his show from the Persian Gulf, we thought it was a gag, but no -- Stephen really is going to be taping his show there. From Stripes Central, via the Comedy Central Insider blog:

"I'm not supposed to tell anyone where I'm going, but just say it's sandy and they'd like us to leave," Colbert told Stars and Stripes on Tuesday.
Former "Daily Show" correspondent Rob Riggle spent a week in Iraq in 2007 taping bits for the show, and it's been reported that Jon Stewart frequently visits war vets at Walter Reed and Bethesda hospitals.
