Stephen Colbert is the host and executive producer of the Emmy-nominated series on Comedy Central, "The Colbert Report." Touted by the New York Times as "one of the best television shows of the year" and praised as "a must watch show" by Entertainment Weekly, "The Colbert Report" has garnered ratings and critical success as one of the top shows on television. 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. Colbert describes his special as "strangely sincere, but also sincerely strange." 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.

For her stunning and sultry portrayal of "Carla" in Broadway's "Nine" opposite Antonio Banderas, she won Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics awards. Krakowski held other acclaimed roles in Broadway productions of "Guys and Dolls," "Grand Hotel," "Company," "Once Upon A Mattress," "Tartuffe" and "Starlight Express." During her five-year stint on the award-winning series "Ally McBeal," she received a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of "Elaine Vassal."
