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.

Goals

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.

  1. Great post! I can really tell how excited you are to show how eminent Stephan Colbert is, and I can’t wait to hear more! I’m really interested by how you said “Such as his deep love and interest for his country..” I’d love if you could expand on how he loves his country and why you admire that! Overall you gave a great amount of info and your learning center sounds like its going to be awesome!

  2. Hi Nathan,

    Excellent choice! I have the utmost respect for the feat of satirical theater that Colbert has spun for the last decade, as well as its origins on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Between the two of them, Stewart and Colbert have left an indelible mark on American (political) culture, and I wonder: how do you feel Stephen’s contribution differs from the one Stewart made? (Upon his retirement from the Daily Show a few months back, some even credited Stewart with having created the political consciousness of the millennial generation.) What draws you to Colbert, as a comedian and satirist? What do you think his legacy will be?

    Thanks for the post,

    Mr. J
