Stephen Colbert

The Giants of Comedy

All eyes will be on Stephen Colbert as he takes over David Letterman's late night talk show. Colbert rose to fame in the outrageous Strangers with Candy and as a fake newsman on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. But the funnyman has endured his share of tragedy. His father and two brothers were killed in an airplane crash when Colbert was young. A smart but aimless kid, Colbert was bullied in school and didn't see the point of studying. Eventually, he found drama and improv comedy. Learn about the life of this fascinating comedian whose depths America has yet to mine.
