Stephen Colbert is the host and executive producer of the Emmy-nominated 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 garnered ratings and critical success as one of the top shows on television.

Stephen Colbert's personality, insight and overall rightness led to his half-hour nightly platform which takes on issues of the day, and more importantly, tells you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong. In its first season, "The Colbert Report" received four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program and Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series.

In 2007, Colbert published his first book, "I Am America (And So Can You!)," which debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller List. In the book he voices his opinions on all things American as loudly in print as he does on air.

Since 1997, Colbert 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," which immediately topped The New York Times Best Seller List for fifteen consecutive weeks. He also co-authored the critically acclaimed book Wigfield, which Publisher's Weekly called "uproariously funny, painfully sharp and unlike anything the genre of humorous fiction has seen before."

Born and raised near Charleston, South Carolina, Colbert graduated from Northwestern University and quickly made a name for himself as a member of Chicago's famed Second City improv troupe, where 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's other on-camera appearances include starring opposite Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman in Columbia Pictures "Bewitched" and memorable guest appearances on shows like HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and NBC's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." Colbert was a cast member and writer on ABC's "The Dana Carvey Show," wrote for "Saturday Night Live" and was the voice of Ace on the SNL animated series "The Ambiguously Gay Duo," and he appeared in a long-running commercial campaign for General Motors/Mr. Goodwrench.

Colbert, his wife Evelyn, and their three children reside in the New York area.
