Stephen Colbert is perhaps best known as one of the senior correspondents for Comedy Central's The Daily Show .

Comedy fans, however, also know him as co-creator/writer/star (alongside Amy Sedaris & Paul Dinello) of Comedy Central's decidedly surreal take-off on preachy afterschool specials, Strangers with Candy (the complete first season of which recently made its DVD debut).

Perhaps less well-known, he co-created (with Robert Smigel) the "Ambiguously Gay Duo," providing the voice of Ace to boot. And speaking of cartoon voices, he also does a few for Cartoon Network's Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law .

Colbert's first book, co-written with Sedaris and Dinello, has recently hit bookshelves the world over. Wigfield is a somewhat disturbing, completely hilarious view of a small town's triumphantly pathetic struggle to survive.

A Strangers with Candy movie is on the horizon – as is an in-depth interview with Colbert right here on IGN FilmForce. Until then, though, here's 10 Questions with everyone's favorite fake news anchor...
