Stephen Colbert | 'The Colbert Report'

On Jon Stewart, host of "The Daily Show," as a mentor: "He invited us to have a passionate opinion about what we were writing about, and he wanted to make sure we had our own thought about what we were writing about. And it turned out that I had one. I wouldn't have known that unless Jon Stewart had been there for me. I'm the luckiest man in the world that he's my lead-in and the guy I could turn to for advice and strength."
