Detroit has been the punch line to many of comedian Stephen Colbert’s jokes on his show The Colbert Report, but one local man is challenging the satirist to visit the city.

Carlisle Larsen about why he started the group.

J. Carlisle Larsen has reached out to both Comedy Central and Mr. Colbert's publicist and is awaiting a response.
