“I’m a Roman Catholic”—Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert and “Stephen Colbert” both self-identify as Catholics. And Catholic It-Getters are happy to count both of them in our company. I’ve been looking for a place that collects the many Catholic references in the Colbert Report and various interviews and a place to discuss these religious concepts as filtered through TCR. Not finding one, I decided to be that place.

If you’ve found this blog, you’re probably already an It Getter. Welcome. While you need not be Catholic, it will help with some of the terminology and the concepts. But we’re the friendly, welcoming sort of Catholics here, so feel free to ask questions.

As I launch this site, I want to acknowledge in a special way the fine folks at the No Fact Zone, my absolutely favorite go-to site for information about The Colbert Report. They’re classy, professional and comprehensive.



  1. Thanks for creating this site! One of my favorite things about TCR has always been the inclusion of religion (I first got hooked on the show when the word was “jesi.” Brilliant), and I’m always looking for discussions of that aspect of the show and wondering why more people don’t find it as interesting as I do.

    I love what you have so far, and I’m excited to see what there is to come.

  2. @ Althea. Wow, I missed that one. I’ll have to go looking for it. I’m hoping to do a gallery of links to some of the best religion shout outs on the show. I love the way the religious humor is so subtle and really grounded. He rarely goes for the obvious. Welcome to the conversation.
