This book offers great insight into Stephen Colbert. He is brilliant, down to earth, a family man, and funny. I loved reading about how his nuclear family shaped him, his home in North Carolina influenced him, his tenacity at learning his craft, his position at 'The Daily Show', all moved him into the position he has today. Kudos to Stephen.
This book reveals the real man behind the Stephen Colbert character on his popular TV show. Read it, then watch the show and look for the real man ocassionally peeking out from his character's craziness. Colbert crafted this character after many years in an improv comedy group and drama in the theatre.
This book is about him, not by him. It's an interesting look at how he came to be where he is today, and the story of how he has cultivated and grown his "nation" to do pretty much whatever he tells them to do.
I especially enjoyed how he has remained edgy and gets away with what he does in this day and age when every word "hurts" some victim, and all the good comedians are harnessed by the invisible "word-police" whose ultimate goal is to excise the backbones of every living being!
If you can't laugh at yourself, don't watch comedy!
