Publicité

Stephen Colbert, né le 13 mai 1964 à Washington, est un animateur de télévision, humoriste et satiriste politique américain. Pendant neuf ans, il a animé The Colbert Report, une parodie de journal télévisé ciblant de manière détournée la droite américaine, et présente depuis 2015 The Late Show, remplaçant David Letterman sur le réseau CBS.

Le grand public le découvre en 1997 dans un rôle de faux envoyé spécial du Daily Show présenté par Jon Stewart et diffusé sur Comedy Central. The Colbert Report, créé en 2005, est une série dérivée du Daily Show qui devient rapidement l'une des émissions les plus regardées de Comedy Central et permet à Colbert de remporter quatre Emmy Awards, ainsi que d'être invité à animer le gala annuel des correspondants de la Maison-Blanche en 2006, en présence du président George W. Bush.

Sous les traits du personnage Stephen Colbert, « un crétin arrogant, bien intentionné mais mal informé », le véritable Colbert parodie les émissions politiquement orientées à droite de la chaîne conservatrice Fox News, comme The O'Reilly Factor ou Hannity. Il critique également régulièrement les politiciens démocrates et républicains et s'est présenté aux primaires de Caroline du Sud pour les élections présidentielles de 2008 et de 2012. En 2006 et 2012, Colbert est nommé l'une des cent personnes les plus influentes au monde par le magazine Time. Il est l'auteur de plusieurs livres, dont I Am America , numéro un de la liste des best-sellers du New York Times en 2007.

„If you don't give power to the words that people throw at you to hurt you, they don't hurt you anymore — and you actually have power over those people.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: If you don't give power to the words that people throw at you to hurt you, they don't hurt you anymore — and you actually have power over those people. … So, if you can, realize that the things that people say about you — they don't really matter — it's who you are. And the older you get, the more you'll understand that — because it gets better. And people get nicer too. Stephen Colbert - It Gets Better (13 July 2011) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BThRZbCs-p8

„I stand by this man. I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: I stand by this man. I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound — with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world.

„I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion — be you Hindu, Jewish, or Muslim, I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: And though I am a committed Christian, I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion — be you Hindu, Jewish, or Muslim, I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.

„As excited as I am to be here with the president, I am appalled to be surrounded by the liberal media that is destroying America — with the exception of Fox News.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: As excited as I am to be here with the president, I am appalled to be surrounded by the liberal media that is destroying America — with the exception of Fox News. Fox News gives you both sides of every story: the president's side, and the vice president's side. But the rest of you, what are you thinking, reporting on NSA wiretapping or secret prisons in eastern Europe? Those things are secret for a very important reason: they're super-depressing. And if that's your goal, well, misery accomplished. Over the last five years you people were so good — over tax cuts, WMD intelligence, the effect of global warming. We Americans didn't want to know, and you had the courtesy not to try to find out. Those were good times, as far as we knew.

„But you have one thing that may save you, and that is your youth. This is your great strength. It is also why I hate and fear you.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: But you have one thing that may save you, and that is your youth. This is your great strength. It is also why I hate and fear you. Hear me out. It has been said that children are our future. But does that not also mean that we are their past? You are here to replace us. I don't understand why we're here helping and honoring them. You do not see union workers holding benefits for robots. Knox College commencement address (3 June 2006)

„I would say laughter is the best medicine. But it’s more than that. It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: I would say laughter is the best medicine. But it’s more than that. It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids. Laughter brings the swelling down on our national psyche, and then applies an antibiotic cream... Obviously, it’s a challenge to make light of the darkness but, um, it’s better than crying about it. Entertainment Weekly interview http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20006490,00.html (4 January 2007)

„I didn't realize quite how liberal I was“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: I didn't realize quite how liberal I was until I was asked to make passionate comedic choices as opposed to necessarily successful comedic choices. "Fresh Air" NPR interview http://www.npr.org/templates/player/mediaPlayer.html?action=1&t=1&islist=false&id=4464017&m=4464018 (24 January 2005)

„He wants to do the right thing but has none of the tools to achieve it. Because he has no curiosity, he doesn't like to read and he won't listen anybody, except the voices in his head.“

— Stephen Colbert
Context: We worked very hard to keep him from being a jerk by keeping in mind he's well intentioned. Just poorly informed. He wants to do the right thing but has none of the tools to achieve it. Because he has no curiosity, he doesn't like to read and he won't listen anybody, except the voices in his head.
