Stephen Colbert Height

"If you don't give power to the words that people throw at you to hurt you, they don't hurt you anymore. And you actually have power over those people."

~ Stephen Colbert

American comedian, political commentator, actor, satirist, and television host, Stephen Colbert (more like Kohl-Bair) is perhaps best known for hosting The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

About Stephen Colbert's Real Height

There is not much to know about Stephen Colbert's height, he is an average-sized guy (though big in the world of political commentary and satire), who makes people laugh -- well, sometimes anyway.

Mr. Colbert once claimed to be 5'11" tall and after taking a look at him and comparing his height to that of Donald Trump (6'1" now -- 6'2" in prime), Barack Obama (6'1"), Ryan Reynolds (6'2"), Liam Hemsworth (6'3½"), and some more such fine gentlemen, we think that Colbert can pull off looking like 5'11" tall -- at times.

But we think most of the time he looks a bit shorter -- so he missed the entry into the elite 5'11" talk show hosts club -- whose exalted members are Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and John Oliver.

The real height of Stephen Colbert is

5'10½" or 179 cm

"Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the furthest thing from it. Because cynics don't learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness: a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say 'no.' But saying 'yes' begins things. Saying 'yes' is how things grow."
