  1. I'm currently watching this on TV and came to look for answers on whether or not this was a real fail or a comedy bit on how much cats super don't care.

  2. Easily the worst thing I've seen on Stephen Colbert's show, and it's highly likely that it will be the worst thing ever aired on the show.

  3. if you'd like to help, this group needs a new bus! please share-you're so nice!!

  4. This seems like one of things you say yeah lets just do it it'll be funny but then ends up being a disaster because you didn't really think it through.

  5. This was awesome. A lot of people in the comments don't realize that it's probably a comedy act mixed with actual training. Some cats will do what they want, some will listen for a treat, and some just don't give a shit. Was still entertaining to watch.

  6. are they an actual performance group or just something made up for the show cause i have a very hard time believing this is a real act

  7. Samantha Martin and her Acro-Cats perform all over the country, and (usually) the cats perform well…one stint on TV and they bomb! Well, that's cats for you…glad that Stephen and the audience were such good sports about it!

  8. 2 solutions
    1/ this comment section is for mongoloids only
    2/ this comment section is for people having suffered a massive concussion

    this is a joke ,these cats weren't trained…
    this is the whole point…
    lololol

  9. Well, it was pretty cool when it actually worked. Not saying I blame anyone though. Cats ARE notoriously hard to train.

  10. I liked that they failed. I would have liked it less if they did it. It was funny to see their indifference.

  11. The cats just got nervous on tv I guess and am glad that a couple of the cats did come through on this show. Great act anyway and I love cats and have had three of them in my life.

  12. OMFG WHY DIDINT I TAKE THAT ACRO CATS INTERN I LOVE CATS I LOVE STEPHEN I JUST HAD TO WORRY ABOUT COLLEGE AND "HIGHER EDUCATION" BRB KILLING MYSELF

  13. Circus animals again. So lions on trapezes is bad this is ok?
    Seems a bit stressed. Cats should be free like pets. Using your home for sleeping and food and choosing their free life.

  14. honestly, i think the handlers did incredibly well. i would have just hid in a corner cuddling with the cats until the shame goes away.

  15. I've seen the Acro Cats twice, and they were entertaining shows where the cats really put on a great performance. I'm guessing that they had a little stage fright because of such a large audience. And props to Colbert for providing a little comic relief.

  16. I wonder if they've ever tried laser pointers. Might cause chaos because all the cats would go after it at once, but maybe it could work? One at a time maybe? I bet it would be fun to watch though as long as they didn't hurt each other.

  17. I just bought tickets to take my kiddos and OMG i can't wait. This is super funny! I know how cats are, I have three who can be sweet one day and aholes the next day! LOL

  18. have seen them perform on other vids and they are great..but goes to show how amazing trainers of cats(good ones) are because to train an animal that has strong independence takes a heck of alot of patience.

  19. This could actually have promise with more time. The trouble with trying to train cats is that their minds are too active, so if something else is on them other than following orders, well, forget it. But I know that this is a cat rescue organization so I'm very glad Samantha is doing what she's doing. I also want to say that having the act on his show is probably the only intelligent thing Stephen Colbert has ever done.

  20. I don't know what's better, the cats doing shit as THEY please or the trainers for not forcing them to do the act if they don't want to. Good trainers

  21. No wonder the cats wont perform, that cunt doesn't give them any treats after luring the cat with it. Just teasing them.

  22. If they are full of meat they wont do what you want. Make sure they dont eat for at least 3 hours before the show. Remember, they are only in it for the ham and tuna. Otherwise they'll be in a meat coma

  23. Japanese version is trained well than this. Seem like they are too lazy to make performance.

  24. This is Animal abuse. Imagine how much stress have the Cats been through to be trained so that Humans would make money out of them?

  25. I just saw this show last night in Santa Barbara and I must tell you, the entire audience was joyful, entertained, content. I'm still smiling about it. Not only that they rescue cats and put them up for adoption and encourage people to train their feline to a clicker or a whistle in an emergency. Such a delight!
