More Members of the punk rock group Pussy Riot visited Stephen Colbert's "Colbert Report" last night for what Mediaite called the "funniest, best Colbert interview ever." Even though the two band members, Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina, required a Russian translator, the pair held their own with the comedian, trading quick-witted responses that caused the host to continually crack up. When Colbert suggested they'd be searched before leaving the building, the two, who were recently released from prison, replied: "We've had two years of practice hiding things from searches." The activists, who had been arrested after performing in a church, even dared Putin to put them back in prison during Colbert's interview. The two are touring the United States to speak about human rights. Colbert seemed taken by their cause: At the end of the show he donned the same mask the band members wear to protect their identities and addressed Russian President Vladimir Putin directly: "Vladimir, I don't ask much and I don't ask often: You leave those girls alone." The interview caught the attention of the Web: “Wow. If you haven't seen Steven Colbert's interview of Pussy Riot, you should! What an amazing exchange,” @CarolynEmigh posted. “Colbert loves Pussy Riot so much. He looks proud of them,” tweeted @rachelsklar. Indeed it seemed hard for the host to stay in his conservative, sarcastic character upon hearing the pair's defiant responses. Even Forbes called it a “must watch.” And @GiannaToboni added, “The chicks from Pussy Riot are awesome.” Less
