I remember seeing Stephen Colbert on the Daily Show many years ago from time to time. I didn't watch The Colbert Report when it first came on television but now I can't get enough of it.
Stephen Colbert uses satire and often styles his speech and manner in the same fashion as conservative television hosts like Bill O'Reilly. His sarcasm and humor mixes quite well, and gives his character more flexibility when trying to make a joke. In a time of boring news, the Colbert Report can be a bit stale. But during a time of bitter politics, it's hilarious and brilliant.
