Stephen Colbert as Dr. Strangelove

Stephen Colbert’s impersonation of Peter Sellers as Dr. Strangelove is uncanny, and fabulously funny: it’s at the end of this very hilarious episode of The Word. I couldn’t stop laughing, Colbert has the accent down perfectly: this is 7 minutes of absolute comedic brilliance.

I think the character of Dr. Strangelove was based on Edward Teller, wasn’t it?
