Jack White and Stephen Colbert Compete in a Catholic throwdown

Comedian and rocker face off in trivia contest


When Stephen Colbert went down to the Nashville headquarters of Jack White‘s Third Man Records to record his new single “Charlene II (I’m Over You),” he probably didn’t know he was in for an all-out trivia war with the White Stripes frontman. In this web-only clip, Colbert and White attempt to “out-Catholic” each other with obscure facts about Catholic saints, icons and papal protocol. Practicing Catholic Colbert comes on strong, but White is very sharp and competitive, stumping the host with questions like “Who is the patron saint of the impossible?”
