This year, a great American holiday tradition is born – watching "A

Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!," Stephen Colbert's

one-hour original musical holiday special premiering Sunday, November

23 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on COMEDY CENTRAL.

In the special,

Colbert is on his way to perform with Elvis Costello in New York City

but is trapped by snow in his cabin in upstate New York (bear country).

Luckily, his friends Feist, Toby Keith, John Legend, Willie Nelson and

Jon Stewart stop by to help him celebrate the season. "A Colbert

Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!" features original songs written

by David Javerbaum (executive producer, "The Daily Show with Jon

Stewart") and composer Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), who

recently collaborated on the Tony®-nominated Broadway musical "Cry

Baby," with the exception of "(What's So Funny 'bout) Peace, Love And

Understanding" which was written by Nick Lowe. The songs were produced

by Schlesinger and Steven M. Gold. Theme music and score also by

Schlesinger and Gold.

Songs performed on "A Colbert Christmas" include:

• "Another Christmas Song" – Stephen Colbert

• "Have I Got A Present For You" – Toby Keith

• "The Little Dealer Boy" – Stephen Colbert and Willie Nelson

• "Can I Interest You In Hannukah?" – Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart

• "Nutmeg" – Stephen Colbert and John Legend

• "Please Be Patient" – Feist

• "There Are Much Worse Things To Believe In" – Stephen Colbert and Elvis Costello

•

"(What's So Funny 'bout) Peace, Love And Understanding" – Stephen

Colbert, Elvis Costello, Feist, Toby Keith, John Legend and Willie

Nelson

For everyone in Colbert Nation, "A Colbert Christmas: The

Greatest Gift of All!" DVD is the perfect stocking stuffer. It will hit

stores on Tuesday, November 25, released via COMEDY CENTRAL Home

Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The bonus features

include a book burning Yule log, video advent calendar, alternate

endings and more. COMEDY CENTRAL Records will also release the songs

from the special as a digital album available exclusively on iTunes on

Tuesday, November 25. A portion of the proceeds from both the DVD and

iTunes will benefit the charity Feeding America.
