Pussy Riot to appear on The Colbert Report

on January 31, 2014, 8:52am

Next week, Pussy Riot members Nadezhda “Nadya” Tolokonnikova and Maria “Masha” Alekhina will travel to North America for the first time since being freed from Russian prison. They’re due to speak at Amnesty International’s Bringing Human Rights Home concert in Brooklyn on February 5th. While in town, they’ll also be making their way to The Colbert Report.

Yes, Pussy Riot have chosen Stephen Colbert for their North American TV debut and will appear as guests on the February 4th episode of his show.

It’ll be interesting to see how far Colbert will go with satire when talking to two women who served two years hard labor and nearly died, but Pussy Riot are accustomed to an awkward interview. And believe it or not, the two already have something in common: both Pussy Riot and Colbert were on the shortlist for Time’s Person of the Year in 2011. I imagine that’ll be brought up within the first 30 seconds.
