Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Stephen Colbert may be "just a comedian"--one not all audiences find funny, especially among those who have been mercilessly lampooned by him--but there is no arguing that the condescending, bombastic, and largely ignorant pundit he plays on Comedy Central has brought awareness of current events and political happenings to a substantially larger portion of the American population.

The only available biography on Stephen Colbert, this book examines his life story and details how he became one of the most influential people on current American culture. Beginning with coverage of Colbert's childhood, the chapters discuss his education, highlighting his interest in drama; describe his introduction to the world of comedy; review his contributions as a "correspondent" on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"; and focus on Colbert's accomplishments and antics as the star of his faux news program that debuted in the fall of 2005, "The Colbert Report."
