Two of the Holy City’s most famous natives, Stephen Colbert and Darius Rucker, are celebrating birthdays on Friday (5/13).

Colbert, formerly of The Colbert Report (and now the host of The Late Show), turns 52 today. He grew up in James Island and attended Porter-Gaud. His father, James, was the first vice president for academic affairs at MUSC. A library on the hospital’s complex is named after the elder Colbert.

Stephen has earned two Peabody Awards and 9 Primetime Emmy Awards for his work on The Colbert Report. He also won two Grammy Awards and had two books become New York Times best-sellers. In addition,  Colbert was named one of Times “100 Most Influential People” in 2006 and 2012

dariusRucker, the other Charleston star celebrating a birthday today, turns 50. He grew up in the area and attended the University of South Carolina. While at the school, he formed Hootie & the Blowfish with some friends. Rucker now has a successful solo career, but still performs for charity with Hootie & the Blowfish each summer in Daniel Island.

Between the band and his solo work, Rucker has sold millions of albums, scored several No. 1 singles, and earned multiple Grammy Awards.

Happy Birthday to Charleston’s favorite sons!
