Stephen Colbert’s Tribute to Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones

Last week, Media Mob offered a flashback of the late Stephanie Tubbs Jones appearance on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. In presenting that clip, we praised Congresswoman Tubbs Jones for her good comedic timing in her interview with Mr. Colbert.

Last night, Mr. Colbert paid tribute to the late Congresswoman by showing some great footage of her improvising an imaginary courtroom show called Judge Tubbs with him. In the bit, a defendant named Bramlet Abercrombie (played by Mr. Colbert) sued his girlfriend, Sharon Applebaum (Mr. Colbert again) for setting his couch "afire."

Playing herself, Congresswoman Tubbs Jones nailed it.
