Stephen Colbert Featured on the Cover of TIME Magazine

In further cover story feature news, TIME Magazine recently had the privilege of photographing and discussing with Stephen Colbert his actual identity as himself, no-[character]-holds-barred.

“If anyone can put the edge back in late night, it’s him.”

But, as most people are still wondering, who exactly is he? So many of us are accustomed to his blowhard, ultra-alter-ego, Stephen Colbert character; and even for long time fans of his other notable works over the years, there’s somewhat still a level of curiosity to his true identity, as a character persona of some form always followed suit throughout his previous work.

Event ReporT: ‘Secret Manhattan Shoot’ for ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’

Sunday August 16th I woke up at 5 am. The only reason I woke up that early on a Sunday, was to attend the ‘Secret Manhattan Shoot’. I received an email the night before regarding the time to get there, and the “secret location”. The email stated to arrive between 8:15 and 9 am next to the Union Square Drinking Fountain. I arrived at around 8 am at the “secret location”. There were several people dressed in white shirts and black pants with CBS tags. Once I saw them I knew I was in the right spot. There were quite a few people in line. I heard later on that some people got there as early as 6:30 or 7 am for this event. The CBS crew (I’m going to refer to them as this for the rest of the report) didn’t really say much to us at first. They were all talking, and had headsets on. I recognized one guy who would sometimes do warm up for ‘The Colbert Report’. I forgot his name, but he was there with the CBS crew getting ready for this “secret” event. This event was really kept a secret. A few people in line would ask the CBS crew if they knew what was going on, and all they kept saying was that it was as much as a secret for them as it was for us. Even people that casually walked by would ask, and they would just say it’s a secret shoot for ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’. Eventually the crew started checking everyone in. I was with a friend of mine, and we both got checked in. They gave us these little lion stamps on our hands. A little while after that, I saw the crew had bags of white and red balloons. They started giving everyone a balloon, and told us to please not blow them up yet. After all the lion stamps and balloons were given out, we waited in line for a little longer. The crew would come walk up and down by the line and ask “Does everyone have a little lion and a ballon?”. If anyone else heard this they would probably think we were part of some circus event.
