Stephen Colbert and Evelyn McGee

Watching Stephen Colbert and the nightly Colbert Report is an evening routine I look forward to as one that both informs me on the daily "truthiness" and makes me both contemplate political and world events and laugh out loud at Colbert's "conservative" view point.

 His onscreen persona as Stephen Colbere...the savvy, intelligent, very conservative news anchor allows him to brilliantly explore and parody both sides of the political aisle.

 One of my favorite aspects of the Colbert report is its over all gentle approach to this type of sarcasm. Stephen Colbert never sprinkles expletives or edginess throughout his stories simply for shock value.
 Stephen Colbert grew up in a family of 11 children in Charleston, South Carolina.he began his acting career while studying at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, and became a Theater Major after he transferred to Northwestern University.

In his early career, he was hired to perform with Second City's touring company, and there he met Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello.

 The three comedians at first didn't get along. Dinello thought that Colbert was pretentious, and Colbert thought Dinello to be an "illiterate thug". During the tour everything changed, and they all became very close friends.

The three collaborated on a show called, Strangers with Candy. While filming the show, Stephen Colbert met his future wife, Evelyn McGee, who played several roles in the filming of both the series and the resulting film.

 The Colbert-McGee family is a happy one with three children: Madeline, Peter, and John. When asked if his children watch The Colbert Report, Stephen replied that he prefers that his children not watch the show. he recognizes that kids do not really understand his style of sarcasm and irony, and that he would never want them to perceive their dad as being insincere.

All of this information about my favorite news guy only supports my feeling that all of this time I was being entertained, informed, and amused by a very intelligent, caring, and decent man.
