Though a proud product of South Carolina, Stephen Colbert has long been a resident of Montclair, New Jersey. Fully embracing his adopted home, he’s been a staunch supporter of its local arts scene, particularly the annual Montclair Film Festival. At an ’80s-themed fundraiser for the event on Saturday night, Colbert once again lent his voice to the cause by delivering a cover of the Talking Heads classic “Once in a Lifetime”.
Though admittedly not one of his best musical performances, Colbert did a fine imitation of David Byrne, goofy dance moves and all. Sure, he slipped on the timing a bit and his backup singers weren’t doing him any favors, but the spirited rendition clearly delighted the fundraising crowd. And of course, he still found time for a political jab, as he finished his performance by saying, “All remaining donations, if there’s anything left over, are going to go to victims of the Bowling Green massacre.” Gotcha, Kellyanne.
