Colbert Immortalized In Washington

Posted: Nov. 28th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Though already made famous by his infamous roast of then President George W. Bush, the zany antics of political commentator and comedian Stephen Colbert will forever be immortalized in the Madame Tussauds wax museum in Washington DC. Die-hard fans are likely to be just as excited as Colbert himself to visit and see his image, forever enshrined in the same museum that hosts the Presidents Gallery.

Among a throng of anticipating media, today at Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.—home of the Presidents Gallery—the venerable host of Comedy Central's Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning series "The Colbert Report," Stephen Colbert, was immortalized in wax. The political satirist helped unveil his wax figure this morning at the attraction and stood amazed after the curtains dropped to reveal his lifelike wax double.

For the new figure, Madame Tussauds D.C. renovated its Media Room and created a replica set of The Colbert Report, where guests will be able to interact and take photos behind the desk, seated next to the figure.
