Stephen Colbert Bio
Stephen Colbert is the host, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central as well as an accomplished author and actor.
“The Colbert Report” launched on October 17, 2005 and has garnered ratings and critical success as one of the top shows on television. Since its inception, the series has received a prestigious Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting in 2008 and 18 Primetime Emmy nominations. In 2010, Colbert and his writing team won the show’s second Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program.
Stephen Colbert has literally made a name for himself with “The Colbert Report.” The following have all been named in honor of the host: Steagle Colbeagle the Eagle, the mascot for the minor league hockey team Saginaw Spirit;Stephen Jr., a bald eagle at the San Francisco Zoo; Stephanie Colbertle the Turtle, a leatherback turtle in the first Great Turtle Race; Aptostichus Stephencolberti, a trapdoor spider; Air Colbert, a Virgin America jet; Americone Dream, a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor; Esteban Colbert, a very virile falcon in San Jose; Stelephant Colbert, an elephant seal tagged as part of a study by University of California Santa Cruz; Agaporomorphus Colberti, a diving beetle from Venezuela; and a NASA treadmill called the Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill (C.O.L.B.E.R.T.).
“The Colbert Report” deployed to Iraq in June 2009 on a USO tour entitled “Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando” to tape and perform shows in front of the troops. “The Colbert Report” is the first TV show in USO history to produce a week of shows in a combat zone. A highlight from “Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando” included General Ray Odierno receiving a direct order from Commander-In-Chief Barack Obama to shave Colbert’s head. This trip marked the second time the show has broadcast from a remote location. “The Colbert Report” had previously traveled to Philadelphia in April 2008 to cover the all-important Pennsylvania Democratic Primary. In February 2010, The Colbert Report traveled to Vancouver to cover the coverage of the Winter Games. The Colbert Nation raised money to become the primary sponsor of the U.S. Speedskating after the team’s original sponsor, Dutch bank DSB, declared bankruptcy.
Stephen Colbert’s book, I AM AMERICA (And So Can You!), spent 29 weeks on The New York Times Bestseller’s List; debuting and occupying the #1 spot for 13 weeks. The Colbert Report opened 2010 updated for high-definition broadcast and sporting a brand-new set. Iconic items from the original set, including Stephen’s “C” desk, interview table and portrait, were auctioned off to benefit the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development effort.
Since 1997, Stephen Colbert has been the longest-tenured and most diverse correspondent on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” He helped the show win numerous Emmy and Peabody Awards as an on-air personality and writer of news satire. He contributed to AMERICA (THE BOOK): A Citizen’s Guide to Democracy Inaction (Warner Books)which immediately topped The New York Times Bestseller List for 15 consecutive weeks. He also co-authored the critically acclaimed book Wigfield (Hyperion) which Publisher’s Weekly called “uproariously funny, painfully sharp and unlike anything the genre of humorous fiction has seen before.”
Born and raised near Charleston, South Carolina, Stephen Colbert graduated from Northwestern University and quickly made a name for himself as a member of Chicago’s famed Second City improv troupe where he met Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello. The threesome moved to New York City where they created and starred in “Exit 57,” a half-hour sketch comedy series which ran for three seasons on Comedy Central. “Exit 57″ received five CableACE nominations for Best Writing, Performing and Comedy Series.
