Stephen Colbert - 2012 TIME 100: The Most Influential People in the World
Time named Stephen Colbert one of 2012’s most influential people and they got Doonesbury's Garry Trudeau to write the profile. Here's a little of it:

On The Colbert Report, every day is Opposite Day. Because of how his humor works, the audience finds meaning through sustained inference, which is a lot more fun than it sounds. Colbert’s riffs are so ingeniously convoluted and deeply weird that the post-reason wingers have no response to him. They just have to absorb the punishment, night after night.

Other comedians on this year’s list: Louis CK by Joan Rivers, Kristen Wiig by Judd Apatow and Chelsea Handler by Kathy Griffin.
Once again not on the list? Pogs-inventer Quincy Pog. Better luck next year.
Here’s Garry Trudeau on The Report back in 2010.
