TONIGHT: Author of "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln," Doris Kearns Goodwin. Plus, Croniism.
Colbert should be a very familiar face to Comedy Central viewers. For the past two years he has served as a correspondent for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," reporting on anything and everything from the president's infidelities, to the post-Michael Jordan NBA, to a man with a self-made UFO Welcome Center in the front yard of his trailer home.
Born and raised in South Carolina, Colbert began making a name for himself in Chicago as a member of the famed "Second City" improv troupe where he met Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello. After several years at "Second City," the threesome moved to New York City and, along with others, developed "EXIT 57," a half-hour sketch comedy series for HBO Downtown Productions which ran for two seasons during the mid-'90s on COMEDY CENTRAL. "EXIT 57" received five CableACE nominations for best writing, performing and comedy series.
Though continuing his duties with "The Daily Show," Colbert has reunited with the Sedaris and Dinello to create Comedy Central's first ever, live-action, narrative series, "Strangers with Candy," a twisted take on the classic and typically moralistic afterschool specials
In addition to his work on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," Colbert served as both a writer and a cast member on "The Dana Carvey Show," was a guest star on "Spin City" and has written for "Saturday Night Live."
Colbert currently resides in New York with his wife, son and daughter.
