With Stephen Colbert taking over the The Late Show we decided to give you all eight great reasons to love Stephen Colbert. He’s done so much for society as a whole that he deserves all of our appreciation. So sit back and bask in the awesome that is Dr. Stephen T. Colbert.
Stephen Colbert co-starred in the oft forgotten sketch series Exit 57. The show may have been part of the sketch show proliferation of the 90’s, but it brought us the one and only Mr. Colbert. If you get a chance go and find some episodes, it will make you LOL IRL.
Stephen Colbert was one half, the Ace half, of the Ambiguously Gay Duo. He provided multiple voices for the animated shorts, which just proves that he’s a man of many talents worthy of your praise.
In 1999 he joined fellow Exit 57 alums in the series Strangers with Candy as Chuck Noblet. He played a teacher that had quite a bit of trouble with the main character Jeri Blank. It’s well worth the watch if you enjoy good things and laughter.
In Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law Mr. Colbert once again lends his voice to several characters. The most prominent of those characters has to be the head of the law firm, Phil Ken Sebben. This eye-patch clad character was a crazy ball of crazy that made the main character the straight man to his off-the-wall madness.
2004 let Stephen Colbert flex his dramatic muscles. He was a character in an episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent, the character was quite the baddie. Without a single line that could illicit laughter he still made waves that are still felt today, at least in the Law and Order: Criminal Intent universe.
When you need your own satirized version of Mr. Fantastic look no further than Stephen T. Colbert. He voiced the enigmatic Professor Impossible, a character that could stretch himself to immeasurable lengths. His character may have been very physically malleable but emotionally he was very stunted, leaving him alone and leaning towards evil.
The feature film Monsters vs. Aliens also got the Colbert bump when he voiced President Hathaway. Once again he voiced quite the odd character, a character that made the world a crazier place. Who else could create a nuclear missile defense program that was also a coffee maker?
In 2013 he had a small role in a not-so-small movie The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. He played the Laketown Spy, which is fitting considering his previous roles. It would have been nice to see Smaug with him behind the scales.
