Colbert is a member of the festival’s advisory board and his wife, Evelyn, is the president of its board of trustees. (The Colberts live in Montclair.)

In the past, Colbert has interviewed people such as Meryl Streep, Daniel Craig, Jimmy Fallon, Martin Scorsese and Jon Stewart as benefits for the fest.
