Colbert’s Cold Beer

People often ask me on the walking tour about notable people who live in Charleston. We walk past 37 East Bay Street on the tours, and there I explain about the friend of my younger brother who used to come over to our house all the time, who we referred to as Stephen Colbert, pronounced Colburt. The Colberts lived at this residence for many years, and I went to several parties there, and I tell the group on my tour that Colbert, pronounced Colbare, is just Stephen’s stage name, and that the rest of the family goes with the Colburt pronunciation, and that the only “Cold Beer” I experienced at the house was in the coolers of ice on the porches during the parties. <img.src=”Charleston Curiosities” alt=”Colbert House”
