How do I contact Stephen Colbert?

Asked by blastfamy (2154 points ) September 12th, 2008

The other day, I had the great idea of trying to get Stephen Colbert to speak at my high school graduation.

My first roadblock to such a goal is contacting the man. Does anybody know of some way to make such a thing happen?

I’m looking for whatever advice I can get!

Through Comedy Central.

To get a celebrity to speak at any type of public event you normally have to contact either their agent or publicist… a call to Comedy Central may be able to help find that person.

You can email the webmaster of his website, or, contact his agent, here (though I had trouble getting that site to open).

Name your school mascot after him. That will get him there.

just to be realistic though…. Unless he went to your high school or has some other connection to it, getting him as a speaker is going to be difficult. Most of the time celebrities are paid thousands of dollars for speaking engagements. It is a large source of income for many people. That being said… it never hurts to ask.

You can go online and get tickets (usually for free) to be in his audience! I was looking it up the other day, too bad I’m in California.

Don’t ever feel too bad you’re in California. I’m always glad I’m here.

i just have a silly question i was gonna ask steve, its been bugging me for a while now. there’s a term he coined meaning “artificial sincerity”. for the life of me, i cant wonder what it is. i was gonna ask him in a quick message, but i’d have to go through agents and bs and it seems a bit silly. so im just gonna ask some fans till i get an answer.
if anyone knows, please post or send an answer to harryweener@hotmail.com
much appreciated.
