Stephen Colbert madness the right-wing missed: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Amy Schumer and the comic who drove the right mad

When the right fears you so much that they try and boycott, that's when you know you've had a good year

This is the first year in hopefully what will be a long run of Stephen Colbert heading "The Late Show." While the show has struggled a little with ratings, particularly among right-wingers and the guests are intellectual and political, the show is beginning to find its voice and create some truly epic skits with the guests. If you missed this year because you got bored then you missed some craziness. Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Schumer have this weird cake battle thing, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz brought in some major ratings and Stephen gave a shaken response to the attacks in Paris and poetic statement on the shooting in Oregon.

Check out some of the most popular and awesome moments from Colbert's "Late Show" in 2015:
