Talk-Radio Host Accuses Colbert Of Stealing His Joke

Posted: Updated:

A talk-radio host is claiming Stephen Colbert stole his joke.

Cenk Uygur of Air America's morning show "The Young Turks" insisted on his program Wednesday that Colbert used his joke on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report." Uygur posted a video on YouTube comparing his joke -- which he claims he first told on his Sept. 7 radio program -- with a segment that aired on "The Colbert Report" four days later.
