Maurice Sendak on Colbert Report – A Wild Man Indeed

Author of “Where the Wild Things Are” Maurice Sendak was able to keep up with Stephen Colbert in what has to be the best interview in the Colbert Report’s history. With lines like “I didn’t set out to make children happy or make life better for them or easier for them” its hard to tell if he’s being serious or joking… but its probably a little bit of both. He also calls Newt Gingrich an idiot. When Sendak tells Stephen Colbert he’s gay, in full character Colbert says, “and they let you write children’s books?” Watch the hilarious part one and then part two below:
