Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz and Stephen Colbert have led amazing lives and have changed the comedy world forever. This book follows both men's lives from their humble beginnings to becoming two of the most influential people in American Politics.
Jon was born in New York City and raised in New Jersey. Upon graduating college, he worked a few odd jobs until he finally decided to move to New York and pursue comedy full-time. His career was slow to take off, but eventually he was chosen to host MTV's The Jon Stewart Show and later Comedy Central's The Daily Show in 1999. Although Stewart maintains that he is a comedian, he often blurs the line between comedy and journalism. His journalistic integrity has been praised by many, and he has been honored by the White House and the Peabody Awards. All you need to know about Jon Stewart is right here, right now, in the most up to date coverage of his life.
It is said that there are two Stephen Colberts. One pronounces his surname with the 't' silent, and is known around the world as the right wing, "well-intentioned, poorly informed high-status idiot" host to the extremely popular fake news show, The Colbert Report, featured on Comedy Central. The second Stephen Colbert, who pronounces the 't' in his surname, is less known. He is a private man who lives what he calls a "normal life" in New Jersey with his wife and three children. This unauthorized biography follows Colbert from his early career all the way to The Colbert Report, and explores what is known about his childhood and details his career all the way up through the creation of his recent Super PAC.
