As you know, Hubsters, Stephen is honored to have both a great admiration for and a great many siblings. We are in awe of his Mother. One of his siblings and past protector against potential fratricide (due to ball peen hammering) is Elizabeth Colbert Busch (aka Lulu).
Ms. Elizabeth ColberT Busch is currently running a campaign to represent the great state of South Carolina in Congress as a Democrat. You can follow her on her website or on her Elizabeth Colbert Busch for Congress Facebook account or on Twitter. On the weekend of February 23rd, Stephen joined his big sister and bowled and served breakfast to budding supporters.
Marvelous to see such sibling affection and unconditional love. A fine manifestation of their mother’s resilience and familial values made true.

Welcome to ‘Better Know a Guest’, your introduction to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.
The Oscars were held last night in Los Angeles with a visibly nervous Seth MacFarlane at the helm. Honouring musicals of the past decade, and my personal favourite, a tribute to ’50 Years of James Bond’, the Academy tried to breath new life into the ceremony with the youthful and risky MacFarlane. Do you think the show was a success? Should they have called Amy & Tina? What do you thinking of the evenings winners? But most importantly, what do you think “Stephen” will make of it all?
Stephen Colbert talks to ‘Splash’ about honing his comedy skills in Chicago and playfully poking fun at politics.
On March 2, Colbert returns to Chicago to accept yet another accolade: He’ll receive Lookingglass Theatre’s Civic Engagement Award at the organization’s annual Gglassquerade gala. For Colbert, it’s more than a visit to his old stomping grounds — it’s a reunion. “I got to know most of the original members when we were at Northwestern University together,” says Colbert, who was once in a college improv group called No Mud Fun Piranhas with co-founders David Schwimmer and Joy Gregory. He even contributed to some of the theater’s first few shows, toiling in the sound pit for “The Odyssey” and lending his comic chops to the initial improv of “The Jungle.”
But before long, New York came calling. “Shortly before I left Chicago, they asked me if I would do something in ‘The Master and Margarita,’ and I just couldn’t at the time,” says Colbert. “I actually had a nervous breakdown when I said no to them because I thought they were amazing. Boy, I practically had to be hospitalized, I was so upset.”
Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate select items from the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.
Check out this good find: a 2006 event with Stephen and San Francisco Chronicle TV Critic Tim Goodman. According to sfgate.com, the event was put on by the “City Arts and Lectures” program of San Francisco. The extensive interview covers Stephen’s life and career in great detail, and is fantastic if you just want to hear Stephen talk at length, or are new to the fandom and need to learn more about the man himself. It is quite delightful, and a great glimpse of Stephen in those heady, early days of the Report. Click on the lengths to follow the four-part podcast of the event:
