Colbert told Rolling Stone that he's suffered from anxiety virtually his entire adult life, but finds that being out and performing helps.
As the highly successful and popular presenter of ‘The Late Show’ and latterly ‘The Colbert Report’, it might surprise you to learn that Stephen Colbert struggles with anxiety. However, his coping mechanism is to get out there and perform, rather than rely on medication.
The 54 year old TV host told Rolling Stone this week that he used to cope with anxiety when he was younger, which all came to ahead soon after he got married his wife Evelyn in 1993.
“I had a bit of a nervous breakdown after I got married — kind of panic attacks,” Colbert told the publication. “My wife would go off to work and she’d come home — because I worked at night — and I’d be walking around the couch. And she’s like, ‘How was your day?’ And I’d say, ‘You’re looking at it.’ Just tight circles around the couch.”

The show premieres next month, and it's everything Michael Wolff talked about.
Stephen Colbert brings his animated vision of the world of Donald Trump to the screen in 10-episode series entitled 'Our Cartoon President', on which Colbert serves as the executive producer. The series has been written to reflect the president's relationships within the White House.

Probably the most shocking thing about 'The Late Show' host's newest project is how similar it is to real life; far from it being an exaggerated parody of politics, it turns out a lot of their comedic assumptions were right. At least, according to Michael Wolff's damning book 'Fire and Fury' which came out this month...
The big winners at the awards show have been unveiled.

Craig confirmed to Stephen Colbert on Tuesday that he would play 007 for the final time in the upcoming 2019 film.
The English actor famously said, ahead of the release of Spectre back in 2015, that he would sooner “slit his wrists” than play Bond again. However, he may now live to regret those words, after he confirmed to Stephen Colbert on US chat show ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (August 15th) that he would be reprising the role one last time when the 25th movie is released in two years’ time.
“I have been quite cagey about it,” Craig admitted to Colbert. “I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”

Showtime snapped up 10 half-hour episodes for the new series, which will premiere this fall.
Continuing his long-standing tradition of political satire, chat show host Stephen Colbert has announced the launch of a new animated series about President Donald Trump and his White House administration for Showtime.
The network announced on Thursday evening (July 27th) that it had snapped up a series of 10 of a half-hour show to be produced by ‘The Late Show’ host Colbert. It currently doesn’t have a title, but early speculation indicates it might share a similar concept to ‘South Park’, where contemporary news stories are turned around very quickly to make episodes play off them.
“I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I’m honoured that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world,” 53 year old Colbert said in a statement. “I’ve seen some of the footage, and I look forward to sharing the man behind the MAGA.”
Serkis was 'Lord of the Rings' super-fan Stephen Colbert's guest on 'The Late Show' on Tuesday.
The 53 year old English actor, whose work in the field of motion-capture technology is legendary and who used it to portray Smeagol / Gollum, stopped by ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (July 11th) to discuss his new project, War For the Planet of the Apes.
However, as Colbert is wont to do, discussion inevitably turned to the president Donald Trump. A regular feature of late night shows, particularly Jimmy Kimmel’s, is reading out mean tweets, so Colbert launched his own variant of this and asked his guest if he would reprise his memorable character of Gollum in order to read out some of Trump’s infamous tweets.
You have never heard a more depressing jam session.
Stephen Colbert joined the one and only Paul Simon for a jam session with a difference this week, putting a rather depressing twist on the folk singer's not often heard 1966 tune 'The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)'. No wonder Paul hates this one.

'The Late Show' host used the opportunity of a singalong with Paul Simon to take yet more digs at President Donald Trump, by insisting the musician play 'The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)' from Simon & Garfunkel's 1966 album 'Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme'.
