Stephen Colbert, as we’ve often noted here, has been very good for books. Many authors have enjoyed the benefit of the “Colbert Bump” even as the host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report makes mock fun of them on his show.
It’s just been announced that Colbert will leave that show to take the place of retiring David Letterman on CBS Late Night, beginning some time in 2015.
Entertainment Weekly raises the question on many minds. Who is the real Colbert once he sheds his mock-conservative persona?
We just hope the real Colbert continues to be interested in books.
