Stephen Colbert isn’t going to be alone this Christmas. The TV funnyman will be visited by a host of A-list musical pals including Willie Nelson, Feist, Elvis Costello, Toby Keith, and John Legend -- not to mention Colbert’s fellow “journalist” Jon Stewart, who will duet with Colbert on original songs by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne. Costello and the rest of the merrymakers join forces for the classic "(What's So Funny 'bout) Peace, Love and Understanding." DVD bonus features include a video Advent calendar, alternate endings, and a twisted Yule log. Portions of the DVD proceeds will support the Feeding America charity.

We loved this one. Laughed and laughed. Wonderful satire.

Completely irrevrent and inappropriate, but I can't stop myself from laughing my head off and singing along with the songs...."My Nutmeg"....hmmm... We dvr'd it and have watched it at least 10 times since...I'm sure this will soon have a cult-like following. I'm buying the dvd for myself and a friend. TOO FUNNY!

There wasn't a lot of laughter, but there were a couple of funny parts. We anticipated it being much better than it actually was. The song of the angels was our favorite. It is probably not something we will watch again...makes me wish I would have rented it first!

I was hoping for a classic I would watch year after year. There were a few funny moments, but not enough to justify the price. I really like Stephen Colbert-watch his show, bought his book--this alas wasn't worth it.
