The portrait of Stephen Colbert (b. 1964, Washington, D.C.), the mock pundit from the Comedy Central show The Colbert Report, is back on view. A series of segments on The Colbert Report in 2008 depicted the comedian's quest to have his portrait accepted by one of the Smithsonian's museums. It was previously on view at the National Portrait Gallery and at the National Museum of American History.
