Stephen Colbert vs Stone Phillips: Gravitas

Gravitas is a word that conveys a sense of substance or depth to an individual’s personality. So who has it? Stephen Colbert or Stone Phillips?

Stephen Colbert, who has been referred to as the Stone Phillips of fake news, goes head to head against Phillips in a battle of Gravitas.

If you’re wondering how they did that so well together, it’s because they’ve done this bit before. My brother told me that when he went to see a charity comedy show, in NYC over the summer, Colbert and Phillips performed this same routine.

Colbert, the Emmy and Peabody award winning comedian, wrote for and appeared on both the Daily Show and Strangers With Candy before getting his own fake news anchor job on The Colbert Report.
