Stephen Colbert’s ‘Pander Express’ is a brilliant takedown of how Hollywood sucks up to China

Stephen Colbert has promised to follow Hollywood’s example in sucking up to China — a practice that has become a huge moneymaker for American film studios. In an episode of the “Late Show” this week, the host fawned over China’s achievements and vowed to get himself some of that “sweet and sour renminbi.”

Colbert launches his segment by talking about “The Martian,” the sci-fi thriller that has been a huge hit so far in the U.S.. The film took in around $150 million in box office revenues in its first weekend, according to entertainment data company Rentrak.

    Looks like Colbert is returning to his old tried and proven routines from Comedy Central. Which is good! He really isn’t very good at stand-up comedy monologues.
