  1. This host has been very entertaining over the years, but he lacks a sense of how to conduct a meaningful interview. Too often he makes the moment about himself rather than the guest.

  2. I was wondering why the band was playing the song "Jump"…I forgot Darren's last name is Criss….it all makes sense now.

  3. He’s nominated for a freaking Emmy and all they let him talk about is that stupid bar. I can’t even.

  4. Part of Your World was the first song I ever memorized on purpose. I was six, or maybe five. Thanks for reminding me, Darren.

  5. Aha! So now I know where I can meet him. I just need to be able to afford getting to Hollywood – and accommodation- and transport to the bar…But now it is possible 😁

  6. I cant believe this man went from playing Harry Potter in an unauthorized college Harry Potter musical to nominated for an emmy twice
    Edit: and wINNING AN EMMY!!!

  7. I lost it when the "Disney lawyers came out of their crypts" part came up XDDD I hope he does Another Potter Reunion again! That shows hilarious XD

  8. From Star Kid, to Blaine to Andrew Cunanan in American Crime Story, and Emmy Nominee to Emmy Winner! YAY! And the first Filipino-American to win an Emmy as well.

  9. My wife's grandmother was Dorothea Redmond and was Disney royalty. She was the first female set production designer and designed Disney Main St, The Space Needle and the restaurant at LAX. You can see her work in a lot of the Disney movies. She was a tremendously talented artist and lived to be 98 years old. Her husband was Harry Redmond Jr whom, along with his father, brought the movie business from New York to Hollywoodland. He live to be 101.

  10. All of me πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸŽΉπŸ’Ÿβ€οΈβ™₯οΈπŸ’Ÿβ€οΈπŸ’–β™₯οΈπŸ’Ÿβ€οΈπŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“

  12. classic darren. still doesn’t know the lyrics to any disney song he so often sing. harry freakin potter is totally awesome

  13. I never thought that Harry Potter would be like James Bond, Dracula or Sherlock Holmes, where people have a "preferred actor" for that character. I like Daniel Radcliffe but I must say, Darren is my HP.

  14. Okay but we all know where he got falling off things and rolling on the ground for every line from… cough Draco cough

  15. Screw Chris colfer
    Darren criss is way sexier
    Sorry Chris colfer
    Darren criss is now my kind of man

  16. I've been watching Colbert since college. And I've been following Starkid since college. So finding this gem is just… TOTALLY AWESOME!!!
