AMI President J. Patrick Boyle last night appeared on the popular “Colbert Report,” a political comedy show on Comedy Central.

Boyle appeared in the “Know Your Lobby” segment, which profiles lobbying organizations.  Colbert taped two hours of comedic interchange with Boyle for the four-minute segment. 

“Although I’ve had a lot of tough interviews in my day, that was definitely the toughest and most unique interview experience of my career,” Boyle said. “I was honored to play straight man to the hilarious Stephen Colbert and to demonstrate that while meat processing is serious business, we can be good sports.”

While the show premiered last night, it will repeat several times today and is available online at
