    Stephen Colbert just landed the coveted "Late Show" gig as David Letterman's successor.
    And while most of us are familiar with Colbert's conservative character he plays on "The Colbert Report," we still don't know exactly what the Comedy Central star is like in real life.
    On "Meet the Press" in 2012, Colbert described his character as "an idiot [who] is willfully ignorant."
    Charles McGrath of The New York Times describes the real Colbert as "a practicing Catholic, who lives with his wife and three children in suburban Montclair, N.J., where, according to one of his neighbors, he is 'extremely normal.'"
    Throughout the years, the real Colbert has emerged and opened up about his show, character, and personal life.
    We've put together a series of clips that show what his true personality is like. Before "The Daily Show," Stephen Colbert was hired as a correspondent on "Good Morning America." Below is Colbert's only segment to make it on air.
