The Colbert Report will be coming to Lawrence March 9 to interview Mayor Mike Dever and the city’s rising celebrity, sixth-grade hedgehog lobbyist, Judson King.

Since early January, the story of Judson and his new pet, Little Luke, has reached a national audience, boasting coverage by CBS, CNN and Fox.

A member of the Report’s staff contacted Dever earlier this week about the shoot.

Dever, a loyal fan of the Comedy Central show, said he was curious - but not concerned - about the focus of Colbert’s coverage. He said he has his ideas about the premise of the story, but he knows it will at least be funny.

I do love the Colbert Report, but we all know these interviews rarely paint the interviewees in a good light! Who knows though since a child is involved.

Or could the hedgehog be a new addition to the Treat Down!?!?!

Oh, I wouldn't worry about the kid looking bad. Dever, on the other hand....

wonder if Dever can talk himself out of this one.

I'd be less concerned with the kid and more with the town/state.

It's comedy people, lighten up. If you can't laugh at yourself.....
