Stephen Colbert has been named Man of the Year by the U. S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Co, the largest such festival in the United States. It's a pretty big honor for a comedian, and it celebrates the fact that The Colbert Report has achieved a level of success that can not be denied any longer, which is an awesome thing.
TheFeed was originally offered the award, but had to decline when sjohnson and dvinson got into a fist fight over who would be making the acceptance speech, and emorton had to read them the Riot Act. Clearly, we are not ready for those kinds of accolades. Maybe next year.
