Stephen Colbert To Receive Honorary Degree

stephen colbert to receive honorary degree

Well deserved!

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?

    He is a big Pres. Obama fan which makes me happy.

    Pres. Obama and Michelle are two humble people that are like our king and queen. So glad monkey face isn't there any more.

    Love to the Obama's from Hollywood where the smart people roam.

    It's Barbara Liskov…

    Jessye Norman is a giant!! Literally and figuratively and I love her.

    Considering he actually earned a degree there in 1986, yes. He must be getting another one just for speaking at their commencement. It's not unusual but he definitely deserves it. It can't hurt to have him on your alma mater list.
