Colbert recently completed his first Christmas special, A Colbert Christmas! the Greatest Gift of All, with appearances by Elvis Costello, Willie Nelson, John Legend, Toby Keith, Feist, and Jon Stewart.

In 2007, Colbert published his first book, I AM AMERICA (And So Can You!), which debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller's List. In the book Colbert voices his opinions on all things American as loudly in print as he does on air.
