After nine years, Stephen Colbert has left the Comedy Central satirical-news show "The Colbert Report," retiring the mythical character who served as host – a pompous, conservative scold also known as Stephen Colbert.The Colbert character developed into a shrewdly satirical observer, preaching the opposite of what real-life Stephen Colbert meant to say.An actor, comedian and improv virtuoso, Colbert had created his Stephen Colbert alter ego in 1997 as a "senior correspondent" for Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart".With Stewart, he staged in 2010 a "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" as a live TV extravaganza that drew tens of thousands to Washington's National Mall.Along with his commentaries, Colbert had one of TV's broadest spectrum of guests, ranging from entertainers to intellectuals to the power elite.
