NEW YORK â€” Stephen Colbert is dead.
Stephen Colbert is immortal?
Long live Stephen Colbert!
Nine years of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" came to an end Thursday night along with its mythical presiding pundit, as the real-life Stephen Colbert bade the audience farewell.
He was last seen gliding through the clouds in the backseat of Santa's sleigh beside Alex Trebek (don't ask).
