Is a huge Lord of the Rings fan and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the series. Specifically recorded an entire biography of LOTR character Aragorn from memory when Viggo Mortensen appeared on The Daily Show. Mortensen kindly sent Colbert a platter full of LOTR characters carved out of chocolate.
Most of the shows he has been a part of are on Comedy Central. These shows are "Exit 57" (1995), "The Daily Show" (1996), "Strangers with Candy" (1999) and "The Colbert Report" (2005).
Was included in the Peabody Award given to the "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: Indecision 2000" and "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: Indecision 2004" for "Offering biting political satire, these scintillating segments had something droll and amusing to say about almost everything and everyone associated with American politics and the presidential election."
How do you summarize the life of someone as awesome as Stephen Colbert? I don't know, but it sure is my privilege to try!
Stephen T. Colbert (the "T" stands for "Truth"…actually it's Tyrone) grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, which is the cultural center of the South. Some people say Savannah, Georgia is, but does Savannah have the Roper Hospital School of Practical Nursing? I don't think so!
