Stephen Colbert is a comedy icon. Early in his career, he appeared on comedy shows like ‘The Dana Carvey Show’ and the cult-classic ‘Strangers With Candy.’ He first rose to fame as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show,’ which eventually led to his spin-off ‘The Colbert Report.’ On the spin-off, Stephen satirized conservative political pundits and news discussion shows, with a hilarious character, who was also named Stephen Colbert. After almost ten years, ‘The Colbert Report’ came to an end in 2014, and Stephen took over hosting duties of ‘The Late Show’ on CBS. For his time on ‘The Colbert Report,’ Stephen won six Primetime Emmy Awards. In total, he’s also won Emmys for his work on ‘The Late Show’ and ‘The Daily Show.’
Outside of his entertainment career, Stephen is a family man. He’s been married to his wife Evelyn McGee-Colbert since 1993, and they have three kids together.
