Madame Tussauds is giving Stephen Colbert something else to brag about. The folks at the wax museum's D.C. location will be unveiling a wax Stephen Colbert on Friday. "The Colbert Report" host will make a brief appearance to meet his statue before the public is allowed to begin viewing it at noon. The figurine has been in the works at least since June when Madame Tussauds' artists visited the Comedy Central host at his New York City studio to take "more than 250 precise measurements and photographs -- capturing him from every angle," according to the release. To make it even more authentic, Wax Colbert will be dressed in clothing donated by the real Colbert and Wax Colbert's glasses are a replica of real Colbert's glasses.
