Apparently he's taking over for Letterman.

Colbert is a so-called comedian who bores you to death with irony.

He proves H. L. Mencken's statement that no one ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

I really had only heard Colbert's name. Had no idea what he does. I don't have cable, don't check out SNL -

I enjoy the Colbert Report, but like others, I don't know much of his real personality. I'm thinking though that he's probably much the same as on his current show.

I have read about his upbringing, he's had some tough breaks.

Youngest of 11 children, his father and 2 of his brothers, Peter and Paul died in a plane crash when Stephen was only 10.

I first watched him in the series "Strangers with Candy" which starred Amy Sedaris (Davids sister). He then went on to be a "reporter" on the Daily Show, before the Colbert Report.

I admire him.

He's very funny, and quick. Without looking it up, I recall he's fairly well educated too. I haven't seen him out of character enough to really gauge how he'll do on Late Night

Nope, nevermind. I was thinking of Mo Rocca. Oops.

The Colbert show had many brilliant moments. Perhaps the best was his reaction to the Citizen's United decision. He formed his own Super Pac which sent him before the real FEC where it was upheld.

This was the quite funny beginning of the Colbert Super Pac.

@blueveinedthrobber,
Not true! Since you have nothing valid to offer, you are not a giver.

Well, if it makes Limbaugh angry, I am all for Colbert getting the show.

Colbert has remained in character for about 10 years, and even did so when he testified before congress. (Those in congress did not think much of him. His silly testimony was sophomoric at best.)

His new network is saying that it will be a new Colbert who will no longer remain in character (as an indignant conservative).

It will be interesting to see whether Colbert succeeds in the job.

I suspect the fact that you didn't appreciate Colbert's testimony before Congress about immigration has something to do with your position on immigration reform.
