Stephen Colbert Sits at Head Table of State Dinner Next to Michelle Obama

Stephen Colbert, part of Comedy Central’s one-two liberal punch each weeknight, rubbed elbows with D.C. elite today as an honored guest at President Barack Obama’s latest State Dinner.

Colbert and his wife sat at the event’s head table; First Lady Michelle Obama sat next to the late-night host.

Reporters for both The Hill and The New York Times tweeted out a partial list of guests in attendance, an event with French President Francois Hollande. Joining Colbert were director J.J. Abrams, a prominent Obama supporter, Cicely Tyson and Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper. 

Colbert’s signature show The Colbert Report finds the comedian posing as a right-wing pundit, but the program’s aim is to promote liberal talking points and mock GOP-friendly targets.
