After being 11th in line it must take a lot to get any type of attention and Stephen Colbert could surely relate. The late night funny man has 10 older brothers and sisters but tragedy struck their South Carolina household when Colbert was just ten years old. His father, a doctor and medical school dean, and two brothers were killed when their private plane crashed. The family had to move to a poorer neighborhood and Colbert struggled with the move and became detached. The future “Late Show” host didn’t get into comedy until he joined an improv group in college.
