Stephen Colbert

As of now I’ve decided that my eminent person, known for his famous “report”, will be Stephen Colbert. I’ve chosen Stephen Due to his many themes running through his life and comedy. Such as his deep love and interest for his country and comedy,the fact that he comes from a white middle-class household and that he’s guy much like myself. So what I’m saying, is that we’ve got quite a few similarities, as you can tell.

Born on May 13, 1964 Stephen was man with ambitions, ambitions large enough that he would become a writer, actor, comedian, but right then he was just a kid. Though he had his path ahead of him and he to figure it out he went to Northwestern University to study to become an actor but by a chance meeting with the comedian Del Close and the rest is history. From just working as part of sketch comedy group (Exit 57), landing his own show, The Colbert Report, to finally taking up the mantel of the host of The Late Night Show.

There are many accomplishments throughout his life that make him noteworthy, here are just a few. He, personally made the news grow into a platform, in my opinion, worth watching (with his work on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report) with his hilarious and informative writing and acting. Along with this Stephen has created, with much effort a Super PAC by the name of The Colbert Super PAC , it was made solely through parody of a Mr. Tim Pawlenty’s own Super PAC, which he soon realized was actually something he should do. Lastly. on this small list of achievements comes one of his most reputable, his impact on the american political scene, largely due to his numerous bits, interviews, and entire episodes on the idea. So to condense this down it’s obvious he’s a very reputable person.


To do this man justice, I will portray this man with my utmost ability, and I will show why he’s truly eminent. Specifically my learning center is something I want to catch your eye and show flares of passion and layers of intrigue, I want it to be something past a poster board, something that shows a glimpse of who he is and his eminence. Overall my goal for this project is to just make it something that shows what he is as a person.

Questions I Consider- The English Civil War

As I read through and appreciated many of sites and videos kindly provided by my colleagues I began to have questions develop in my mind. Such as, how did religion effect the brutality of warfare? Did it justify the acts of the soldiers? Did change how they fought? But what stuck out most in my mind was, what was the opinion of the common folk on the civil war? Were they just caught between two parties? Or did they truly support the rising ideologies of Cromwell or past thinking of the monarchy.

What was the opinion of the common folk (would did they side with)?

Most information on the English civil war isn’t really made to display the thoughts and opinions of peasants. So most of the answers are only a small amount more than an educated guess, though I believe that events in the English civil war prove a strong enough point to tell where there allegiance lie. I believe their allegiances stood mostly with themselves. Though there were likely civilians on each end for and against the opposing sides, I truly believe that the majority of common folk have no reason to care, because would really if you care if you swapped a monarchy for a monarchy? So in the end I believe though some may side with one of the two sides I believe that the common folk really had no reason to care which faction to support.
