picture-33As you know, Stephen Colbert will soon be taking The Colbert Report to the Persian Gulf. And according to the Army's website, Stephen is preparing for the trip by going through basic combat training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

Colbert got off on the wrong foot when he dropped his bag in front of his drill sergeant and promptly asked, "Can I get a bellman?"

Colbert and a production crew spent the day filming scenes of Colbert being put through various BCT training events under the instruction and watchful eye of his drill sergeant, Sgt. 1st Class Demetrius Chantz, an instructor at the U.S. Army Drill Sergeant School.

The scenes are for The Colbert Report's upcoming trip to the Persian Gulf. The show will broadcast for an entire week from the region.

"We were invited last July, but I wasn't able to go over at the time because I was committed to finishing the election cycle," Colbert said. "But as soon as that was over, I approached General Petraeus' office to see if the offer still stood. We couldn't be more thrilled to be going over there and having the honor of taking a shot at making the troops laugh."

The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.
