Stephen Colbert To Receive Honorary Degree

Filed under: Stephen Colbert

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?

Tom Hanks' Son Raps!

Yep, one of Tom Hanks' sons is a rapper at Northwestern University.

Check out Chester Hanks' Chet Haze's song White and Purple (above), which is a take-off of Wiz Khalifa's Black and Yellow.

Kind of strange to hear Tom's son spitting lyrics like "…that's what happens after drinking all of those Long Islands."

What do U think of Chet Haze's rap skills?
