Possibly the most intelligent man gracing the television today, Steven Colbert
has a large audience
of disgruntled, politically aware 13-30 year olds who tend to become fanatical when they finally become an audience
member of Colbert
's live-filmed talk show. Colbert
's tongue-in-cheek approach to comedy is highly effective, in part due to the outrageous character he has made himself into. Colbert
's character is actually
a caricture of America's conservative, republican population, whose backwards thinking and ridiculously contrary
attitude is easy to mock. Steven Colbert
has become somewhat of a modest celebrity thanks
to his political
commentary, appearing in an issue of GQ and booking
, literary and artistic celebrities himself.
"Hey, have you heard about Steven Colbert?"
"Pfft, who hasn't, he's only
the most intelligent man gracing television today."
