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. How did this individual come to be known as his alter ego? 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.
