“Colbert Report Painting“ – Print available to buy from Allposters.com (reproduction of painting by the National Museum of American History)
All hail Stephen Colbert! He’s the man that grizzly bears want to devour; a dear friend of the Grim Reaper; he maintains diplomatic ties with the ambassador of Hungary, who made him an honorary citizen; the American bald eagle has an attraction to him; interns think he’s a great boss; the National Museum of American History honored his stature with a portrait painting; he reinvented the word “truthiness” and turned it into the 2006 Word of the Year. Stephen Colbert transformed late-night television with unique, thoughtful insights. His punditry brought fresh perspectives on important issue facing many people in this country and around the globe. If it weren’t for the greatness of “The Colbert Report,” the late-night television genre might have evolved differently than its current form. He might even disagree with the usage of the word “evolve.”
It was unfortunate to hear that December 28, 2014 will mark the last television broadcast of “The Colbert Report.” With David Letterman deciding to retire from The Late Show, a slot opened and Stephen Tyrone Colbert became slated to fill the role. Fans of the 11:30PM time slot will miss the preaching of Colbert’s “truthiness.”
Although his duty changes, the memory of the “The Colbert Report” will last forever. We are offering a chance for you to immortalize and worship the late-night genius by hanging the above art print on your own wall. Add extra decorative features to make the print distinct—surround it with PARMA gold deco frame patterns, or settle with framing the print with our assortment of colored frames.

The show had received nominations for Primetime Emmy Awards in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012; two Satellite Awards; two Television Critics Association Awards. In 2013 and 2014, it won two Emmys (Outstanding Variety Series and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series). Frazier Moore, a syndicated national T.V. columnist, penned an opinion piece that praised Colbert for his clever use of satire over nine years.
Fans of “The Colbert Report” will miss the character of Stephen Colbert and the satirist who played him too well. The nation looks forward to congratulating Mr. Colbert for hosting nine successful years of political satire and wishes him the best of luck in hosting The Late Show.
