** When Ricky Martin came out as gay, Stephen showed that he's a longtime Martin fan by playing a (fake) clip of himself as a local news anchor. In the clip, Stephen mentions "She Bangs," which was recorded in 2000, as a "new song." Stephen actually joined ''Series/TheDailyShow'' in 1997, suggesting there may be some overlap between his fake past and his time on the show.

The ''Colbert Report'' ended on December 18, 2014, with Stephen succeeding Creator/DavidLetterman as host of ''Series/TheLateShow'' with ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'', which premiered in September 2015. Fellow ''Daily Show'' alum Creator/LarryWilmore took the ''Colbert Report'''s spot with his own spinoff ''Series/TheNightlyShow'', which premiered in January 2015. In September 2017, the show received a SpiritualSuccessor in the form of ''Series/TheOppositionWithJordanKlepper'', another show hosted by a former Daily Show correspondent who takes on a faux-conservative persona. [[note]]though ''The Opposition'' parodies alt-right media sources such as Alex Jones rather than ''The Colbert Report'' 's focus on mainstream cable news pundits such as Bill O'Reilly.[[/note]]

* TwoDecadesBehind: In the April 26, 2012 episode, Stephen talks about how he can relate to youth much better than Obama. He says things like "Turn off your {{Atari}}, Obama, because the game is over" and "They know I'm young because I always carry around a full deck of TabletopGame/YuGiOh cards and I love the Power Rangers."

Stephen also keeps an emergency supply of sugar, and of a four-ounce Mini Gulp (for when the Big Gulp is shrunk) in his desk. Other mysteries yielded by that treasure trove include a poll-sausage making machine and the Ham-Head of Karl Rove, and, of course, a Shofar. And probably [[YesButWhatDoesZataproximetacineDO the entire line of Prescott Pharmaceutical supplies]] - up to an including a freaking ''[[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes snake.]]'' As of August 2011 he has a chicken and bars of gold stored under there, along with other potential forms of currency if the economy collapses. In February 2012 he produced two kittens, named Whiskers and Other Whiskers ...

[[Series/TheDailyShow Half an hour after Jon Stewart.]][[note]]In actual fact, they retired within seven months of each other, and Stewart announced that he was leaving ''The Daily Show'' all of eight weeks after the ''Report'' went off the air. To the shock of nobody (and the joy of ''everybody''), Jon Stewart joined the staff of ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'' as an executive producer. You really ''can't'' keep these two apart.[[/note]]
