The Colbert Report had a slow start, but Stephen Colbert’s “Stephen Colbert” became one of the greatest performances in TV history, and the show could regularly one-up its parent The Daily Show. With the last episode airing this week, I decided to highlight some of my favorite moments from the show, in no particular order. Enjoy, and also check out the show’s meticulously curated website, which basically has every moment you could think of.
