The Colbert Report, along with The Daily Show With John Stewart, is one of our favourite American TV shows. That shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as Colbert used to work on The Daily Show and that his stand-alone programme is something of a more-of-the-same spin-off.

So when we heard that Jack White was appearing on Colbert, we were more than a touch excited. Not so much to see the singer play, we had already caught him on Jools Holland earlier in the week, but that the Colbert Report has a strict ‘All Musical Guest Must Be Interviewed’ policy. He even has a sign saying so!

We knew this would be a good one and above you can just see for yourself if it indeed is. SPOILER: Oh does White squirm.
