Stephen Colbert Brief Biography

Stephen Colbert
Stephen Tyrone Colbert (, n: ; born May 13, 1964) is an American comedian, television host, and author. Colbert has hosted The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, a late-night television talk show on CBS which is known for deadpan comedy, since September 8, 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 considerable attention for his role on the latter as closeted gay history teacher Chuck Noblet. His work as a correspondent on Comedy Central's news-parody series The Daily Show gained him wide recognition.
