Despite what the the person who posted this video titled it, that's just way off and has next-to-nothing to do with the interview and why it's so terrific. Rather, this is just a very enjoyable, affectionate interview between Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell about being longtime friends. They've talked about it in the past on interviews, but go into more detail here. Especially in the first half, where they get into their earliest days working together at The Second City in Chicago. And though sometimes they've talked about their past in a fun, comic "surface showbiz" way, here they seem to strip that away and just have a fond, funny time remembering. Particularly in one of those, "Can you actually, truly believe we went from that to this" kind of way.
