NEW YORK, March 18, 2008 -- Stephen Colbert has announced that "The Colbert Report" with its 80 staffers will be heading to Philadelphia to cover the all-important Pennsylvania Democratic Primary. This marks the first time the show is broadcasting from a remote location. In the proud tradition of his Presidential Campaign, Colbert has once again courageously partnered with the first name in electoral snacking: Doritos.
"The Colbert Report: Doritos' Spicy Sweet Pennsylvania Primary Coverage From Chili-Delphia - The City Of Brotherly Crunch!" will be taped at the 900-seat The Annenberg Center for the Performing Art's Zellerbach Theatre on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania and will air nightly at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT from Monday, April 14 through Thursday, April 17.
Colbert said of his historic visit, "The road to the Democratic nomination goes through Pennsylvania and I intend to make my show the decisive pothole on that road!" Adding, "Plus, it's just across the river from Camden, New Jersey!"
