Stephen Colbert took to the stage at the CBS Upfronts at Carnegie Hall, New York on Wednesday, 18th May, 2016. Breathing a bit of fresh air into an other wise ‘Hamilton’ themed event, Colbert instead focused his presentation on politics, mocking Bernie Sanders, Jeb Bush and Donald Trump. The presentation also catered to advertisers who filled the Hall, with Colbert expressing his excitement at spending “tonight with you celebrating my first nine months as the host of the Late Show. Nine months means that a baby conceived during a commercial break on my very first show could be born by now. You noticed that hasn’t happened, and you know why? Because your commercials are better than sex.”

Happy Birthday, Stephen Colbert! Let’s Celebrate with DonorsChoose.

Stephen Colbert Richard Curtis Talk

On behalf of our webmaster Katt and the Colbert News Hub staff, we would like to wish Stephen Colbert a very happy birthday! This time of year always brings lovely weather, end-of-school-year-excitement, and the glad knowledge that on May 13th our fearless host has marked another year. We appreciate all that Stephen does night after night to keep us wonderfully entertained, and this site is a testament to that appreciation.

This year we have decided to reactivate the Colbert News Hub Giving Page on DonorsChoose, Stephen’s signature charity. We have selected projects at the end of this school year in the most urgent need of completion – the projects are right at the goal line, just need a helpful assist. Who better than ourselves, valiant fans that we are! Consider making a donation in honor of Stephen’s birthday. Not only do we commemorate this important occasion in the Colb-fan universe, we will be helping children and teachers in need of school supplies.

All donations are welcome, and none are too big or too small. To donate, simply visit our page. Feel free to let the teachers know that you donated in Stephen’s name, and also, if you would like, let us know of your participation in the comments. You Hubsters have always been very generous, particularly when it comes to Stephen-related charitable initiatives, so in advance we thank you.

Feel free to leave your birthday congratulations in the comments section!
