Stephen Colbert Gets Fond Farewell From Hollywood on Social Media

James Franco, Steve Martin and President Obama among those saying goodbye to the late-night funny man

With “The Colbert Report” coming to a close on Thursday night after nine years on the air, some of the biggest names in Hollywood have been sharing their fond memories of the Comedy Central series.

Host Stephen Colbert brought back a slew of former guests for his final show in an epic, star-studded singalong. Those who weren’t able to make it (and even some who did) took to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to post their messages of congratulations, appreciation and sadness to see Colbert and his conservative character go.

Comedy icon Steve Martin, former President Bill Clinton and Colbert’s replacement Larry Wilmore all offered the CBS-bound star their heartfelt notes. Others like James Franco and Andy Cohen shared photos from the set of the finale.

TheWrap has assembled all of the responses to Colbert’s final show. Find all of the great goodbyes below.
