Stephen Colbert Tickets
Stephen Colbert is one of the most well-known personalities in American media today. He got his start as a comedian with the Second City comedy troupe in Chicago. There, he met Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello. He appeared with them in several projects including Comedy Central's Strangers with Candy. Colbert first came to the attention of mainstream America with his role as a correspondent on The Daily Show. There, he portrayed an exaggeratedly conservative counterpart to then-host, Jon Stewart. Eventually, Colbert's character was spun-off onto a show of his own, The Colbert Report. A satire of The O'Reilly Factor, it established Colbert's credentials as an effective, high-level television host. On the strength of that program, he was named the host of The Late Show when David Letterman retired. Today, as an author, speaker and late-night talk show host, Colbert is one of the biggest figures in American media.
