STEPHEN COLBERT stars in and executive produces the hit late-night series on Comedy Central, The Colbert Report. Touted by the New York Times as one of the best television shows of the year and praised as a must watch show by Entertainment Weekly, The Colbert Report has already garnered ratings and critical success as one of the top new entries on the television landscape. Since 1997, Stephen was the longest-tenured and most diverse correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He helped the show to win numerous Emmy and Peabody Awards as an on-air personality and show writer for the news satire. He contributed to AMERICA (THE BOOK): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction (Warner Books) which immediately topped The New York Times Bestseller List for 15 consecutive weeks. He also co-authored the critically acclaimed book Wigfield (Hyperion) which Publisher's Weekly called uproariously funny, painfully sharp and unlike anything the genre of humorous fiction has seen before. As a member of Chicago's famed Second City improv troupe, he met Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello. The threesome moved to New York City where they created and starred in Exit 57, a half-hour sketch comedy series which ran for three seasons on Comedy Central. Exit 57 received five CableACE nominations for Best Writing, Performing, and Comedy Series. Colbert reunited with Sedaris and Dinello to create Comedy Central's first ever live-action narrative series, the cult hit Strangers with Candy. Colbert has appeared opposite Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman in BeWitched; as well as on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Law and Order: Criminal Intent, and The Dana Carvey Show.
