Stephen Colbert's alma mater, Northwestern University, will be giving the Colbert Report host an honorary degree during the school's commencement on June 17.
Other folks who have received such an honor from Northwestern include computer science expert Barbar Liskov, death penalty/international criminal law scholar William Schabas, and opera singer Jessye Norman.
Those OTHER recipients may have some pret-ty impressive sounding jobs….but did any of them write, produce, AND star in Strangers with Candy? Didn't think so!
Congratulations, Stephen! We're happy for you!
Do U think Stephen Colbert deserves an honorary degree?
