Hear Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, on this edition of Fresh Air.
His show parodies, and is modeled after, The O'Reilly Factor. In fact, in a New Yorker review, Nancy Franklin writes, "Colbert resembles nobody more than he does Bill O'Reilly, and like O'Reilly, he conveys fake humility and easy rage toward inappropriate targets." Colbert was formerly the (fake) senior correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with John Stewart. His new book is I Am America (And So Can You!). [Broadcast Date: October 9, 2007]
