Andrew Bird On The Colbert Report (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Andrew Bird appeared on the Colbert Report for a brief interview and two-song performance last night. In appropriate Bird behavior, he was charming, humble and held his own against the brash Colbert, who noted his 15-year, slow rise to semi-fame. He offered to help bump Bird to the next level.

"Are you ready to be superfamous?" Colbert asked.

I think I can handle the burden," Bird responded.

The discussion moved on to tumors, Renaissance fairs and funerals.
