Steve Carell
Steve Carell Remove performer from this event

Reviews & Comments
Mar 10, 2008 - YogiBear on Steve Carell
Just an average-looking middle aged guy with an amazing talent to make you laugh!

I love Steve Carell because he looks so normal. Not Hollywood glam, which is inspiring because it's like - wow! this forty-something year old guy who looks like a total Dad achieved an incredible amount of success at a really late age! I love it because it's really untypical!

The pivotal moment in his career was when he starred in "40-Year Old Virgin" -- who could ever forget that chest waxing scene?! Yikes! He recently played the voice of the Mayor in "Horton Hears a Who!" and in my opinion, does a far better job than Jim Carrey! He's so animated and funny! It must be tough being a voice of those characters, but he pulls it off flawlessly! :)

Nov 21, 2007 - zbrock on Stephen Colbert
I was going to vote for him for president

Until he got unfairly knocked out of the primaries.

Aug 27, 2007 - Heather.Wiggin on Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert had become one of the cornerstones of "The Daily Show" before he moved on to become the star and host of "The Colbert Report." His deadpan delivery is the perfect satirical vehicle to illustrate the often ridiculous positions of ultra-conservative figures. Segments like "The Word" and "Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger" consistently elicit thunderous applause from his audience. "The Colbert Report" has become an irreplaceable complement to "The Daily Show."
