Launched in 2005, The Colbert Report was the most revolutionary talk show since Lettermans Late Night on NBC. Colbert rode his vainglorious character into cultural history on a screaming eagle, playing a swaggering, know-nothing, feel-everything conservative pundit devoted to America, himself and the truth--or rather the truthiness (an epoch-defining coinage for the belief that if something feels true in your gut, then it is true).But Colbert himself--the person, himself, out of character--has almost never appeared on TV outside of a few interviews. In this sense, hes coming into the job less as a Letterman and more as a Conan OBrien, who took over Late Night as an obscure former writer for The Simpsons. We know Colbert well, yet we have no idea who is going to show up.This TIME Spotlight Story explores the Late Night Vision of Stephen Colbert.
