>> Jon: HEY, EVERYBODY,

WELCOME TO "THE DAILY SHOW".

MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

OUR GUEST TONIGHT ONE OF OUR

FAVORITES COLIN FIRTH WILL BE

HERE PROMOTING HIS WONDERFUL NEW

FILM.

IT'S CALLED "THE CONTINUING'S

SPEECH."

IF I MAY JUST DO A PIECE FROM

IT.

AGAIN, I'M OBVIOUSLY NOT A GREAT

ACTOR.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT I SAW THE FILM AND I WAS SO

MOVED BY IT.

THE ONE SCENE WHERE HE ADDRESSES

THE ENGLISH PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE

OF WORLD WAR II BRINGING A

CERTAIN SOLACE HE STAYED WITH

THEM IN BUCKINGHAM PALACE AS HE

COULD HAVE GONE TO THE COUNTRY

WHERE THE GERMANS WERE BOMBING

IT.

WENT LIKE THIS.

ARWOOOOO, THE BOMBS, OOOOH.

[LAUGHTER]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
