Stephen Colbert

Touching Tribute
Got some Kleenex? You'll need it for this. Stephen Colbert returned to hosting 'The Colbert Report' last night (June 19) and opened the show with a heartfelt tribute to his late mother, who died last week at the age of 92. In doing so, he slipped out of his right-wing conservative character (something he almost never does) and was just Stephen Colbert, grieving son.
Condolences
Sad news for the Colbert Nation: Comedy Central political funnyman Stephen Colbert's mother Lorna Elizabeth Tuck Colbert has died. She was 92 years old.
Happy Birthday, Stephen

The Great Colbert
With the release of latest film iteration of 'The Great Gatsby' happening today (May 10), the internet has been blowing up with all things Gatsby.

Duet for the Ages
Stephen Colbert, host of 'The Colbert Report,' poked fun at country singer Brad Paisley's newest song 'Accidental Racist' --in which Brad basically tries to solve racism by teaming up with LL Cool J and doing things like apologizing for that one time he wore a Confederate flag T-shirt because he loves Lynyrd Skynyrd. To sum things up, with lyrics like "If you don't judge my gold chains / I'll
Opening Salvos
The political funnymen of Comedy Central, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, had a slightly (but not completely) somber approach to their show openers last night (April 16) in response to those horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon.
You Will Assimilate
Bill Clinton is finally on Twitter -- thanks to Stephen Colbert, who gave the former Commander-in-Chief a shove into the social media age on Monday night's installment of 'The Colbert Report.'
Colbert for the Win
Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons recently had some rather bizarre things to say about gay marriage. Specifically that if gay marriage is allowed, fathers will marry their sons to get tax-free real estate, which is a super logical jump. What's next? Equality for minorities? In response, satirist Stephen Colbert had some witty and biting commentary on the matter, and even a message from Kok
The Wedding Planner
Stephen Colbert, who of course spoofs a wingnut conservative on his show 'The Colbert Report,' was shocked and disheartened to learn that FOX's Bill O'Reilly doesn't really give a hoot about gay marriage one way or the other. Which is pretty shocking considering Bill O'Reilly has spent his whole career hooting about something.
Colbert for Congress
Fans of noted – and hilarious – political satire genius Stephen Colbert have been waiting, in obvious futility, for their favorite faux conservative to run for office for years. Well, they're finally getting a little taste of what it would be like to have a Colbert on the political scene. Just not the Colbert you’re thinking of.
Water Boy
GOP Representative Marco Rubio was probably hoping he'd be able to skate by with an impromptu sip of water during his response to Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday, Feb. 12, but the worst Poland Spring endorsement ever did not escape the notice of political late-night hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert the following night.
‘Senator Stephen Colbert’ Has a Nice Ring to It, Don’t You Think? [VIDEO]
When news broke that South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint was resigning at the end of the year, several media outlets decided that Stephen Colbert -- who grew up in the Palmetto State -- would make a great replacement. And 'The Colbert Report' host sees no reason to rebuff their efforts. Sounds like Ashley Judd may not be the only celebrity considering a senatorial run. Or ... not.
Jon Stewart + Stephen Colbert
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are the two comedic geniuses who've brought current events to the kids. Can you even remember a time when politics weren’t mad funny?
