This is the name with which Stephen Colbert, host of the Colbert Report, is sometimes credited after the end of the show. Other times, there's some stuff about who provided his wardrobe. The viewing audience, however, would much rather see his official name displayed, since it's
sort of sexy and all. Then again, his suits are pretty sexy, so it might be a good idea to know who provided them. It's all your perspective, one would suppose.
Stephen's D.F.A. was granted to him as an honorary degree from Knox College, and he has peddled it since as the justification of his endorsement for Prescott Pharmaceuticals, along with numerous other expertise-required matters.
