2. Stephen Colbert
Born in Washington D.C on May 13, 1964. He grew up in Charleston, South Carolina where he was the youngest of 11 children. After his father and two brothers were killed in a plane crash, he became very introverted. He later found a way to express himself through acting. He played in a few plays at school, and later went on to attend college at Hampden-Sydney College of Virginia with the intentions of majoring in Philosophy. However, after reconsidering, he transferred to North Western University where he enrolled as a Theater major. He has appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as a conservative correspondent, as well as a show Strangers which was picked up by Comedy Central.
He may be most well known for taking David Letterman’s place on the Late Show after he retired in 2014.
Colbert grew up Catholic and openly talks about his beliefs. He is now Christian and regularly attends church and teaches Sunday School.
