Stephen Colbert

Colbert in December 2017 Stephen Tyrone Colbert ( ; born May 13, 1964) is an American comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host. He is best known for hosting the satirical Comedy Central program ''The Colbert Report'' from 2005 to 2014 and the CBS talk program ''The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'' beginning in September 2015.

Colbert originally studied to be a dramatic actor, but became interested in improvisational theatre while attending Northwestern University, where he met Second City director Del Close. Colbert first performed professionally as an understudy for Steve Carell at Second City Chicago, where his troupe mates included Paul Dinello and Amy Sedaris, comedians with whom he developed the sketch comedy series, ''Exit 57''. He wrote and performed on the short-lived ''Dana Carvey Show'' before collaborating with Sedaris and Dinello again on the cult television series ''Strangers with Candy''. He gained attention for his role on the latter as closeted gay history teacher Chuck Noblet.

Colbert's work as a correspondent on Comedy Central's news-parody series ''The Daily Show'' gained him wide recognition. In 2005, he left ''The Daily Show'' to host ''The Colbert Report''. Following ''The Daily Show''s news-parody concept, ''The Colbert Report'' was a parody of personality-driven political opinion shows including ''The O'Reilly Factor'', in which he portrayed a caricatured version of conservative political pundits. The series became one of Comedy Central's highest-rated series, earning Colbert an invitation to perform as featured entertainer at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in 2006. After ending ''The Colbert Report'', he was hired in 2015 to succeed retiring David Letterman as host of the ''Late Show'' on CBS. He hosted the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards in September 2017.

Colbert has won nine Primetime Emmy Awards, two Grammy Awards, and two Peabody Awards. Colbert was named one of ''Time''s 100 Most Influential People in 2006 and 2012. Colbert's book, ''I Am America (And So Can You!)'', was listed #1 on ''The New York Times'' Best Seller list in 2007. Provided by Wikipedia
