Person of the Year and Book announcement [Mar. 3rd, 2007|06:00 pm]
All things Stephen Colbert

Don't know if this has been posted yet but:

Colbert is comedy festival's person of the year
Host of the satirical Colbert Report also says he is working on a book

Less than three months after Stephen Colbert was honoured for coining the word of 2006 — "truthiness" — the U.S. satirist and TV host has added Person of the Year to his list of accolades.

The faux conservative funnyman was given the latest distinction by the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival late Friday in Aspen, Colo.

Stephen Colbert channels Bill O'Reilly of Fox News for his satirical Comedy Central show The Colbert Report.
(Adam Rountree/Associated Press) "What an honour — an honour to receive and an honour for you to give to me," said Colbert, who is wont to laud himself during his hit Comedy Central show The Colbert Report.

Colbert — whose tough-talking, ultra-patriotic television persona is a satirical take on bombastic Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly — said he was surprised at the continued popularity of the schtick he first developed as a senior correspondent with Jon Stewart's news satire The Daily Show.

"I never in a million years imagined that a character who was essentially based on O'Reilly a year and a half ago" would have this honour, said Colbert, who suggested he would get weeks' worth of content out of the Aspen prize.

Book in the works
Colbert also said he is writing a book about "what is best and what's worst about America. You know, it's 20 subjects … all of the important things, the culture war, religion, hygiene, sports."

In December, the Colbert-coined "truthiness" was declared the word of the year for 2006 by dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster. Colbert has defined the word as "truth that comes from the gut, not books."

In January, the southern Ontario city of Oshawa announced it would host Oshawa in March, after its mayor lost a bet to Colbert over a junior hockey game between the Oshawa Generals and the Saginaw Spirit — a Michigan-based team that has a Colbert-look-alike mascot named Steagle Colbeagle the Eagle.

Founded in 1995, the HBO-organized U.S. Comedy Arts Festival features stand-up comedy performances, appearances by the casts of television shows and tributes to veteran comedians.

I have a little thing to share with you. I know that some of you have wrote stuff about Stephen on your money (that's way too cool) and some of you have even got a money that has some Colbert-related writing on it. And I also know that there's been no one certain place to post these money-writing things so I'm bringing you one. colbert_bills. Yeah. That's a place dedicated only for you money writers and money receivers out there. I know it sounds a little silly but it should be fun.

So here's the deal: read the userinfo's text carefully and register into the system. It's easy if you follow the instructions and the rules.

So in a nutshell: join it, register into it and post in it. So easy.
