Barry Julien has been promoted to Co-Executive Producer and Opus Moreschi to Head Writer of COMEDY CENTRAL's® "The Colbert Report," it was announced today by Stephen Colbert, Executive Producer, Writer and Host of the program. Julien formerly served as Supervising Producer and Head Writer. Moreschi was previously a writer for the series.

"Barry Julien and Opus Moreschi are tireless, visionary producers and incredibly talented writers. For instance they wrote this sentence," said Colbert.

Julien, who will continue as a writer on the show, is a native of Montreal, Quebec where he started as a stand-up comedian at 17 and wrote for numerous Canadian television shows. He joined "The Colbert Report" in 2007 and held positions as a writer (2007-2009), Head Writer (2009-2012) and Supervising Producer (2011-2012). He is the recipient of three Writer's Guild Awards and Primetime Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program in 2008 and 2010.

Moreschi is a classic Hollywood triple threat: a writer, performer and mammal. A graduate of Emerson College, he has written and performed comedy at I.O. West and the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, as well as on MTV, COMEDY CENTRAL and Spike TV. Moreschi joined the show as a writer in 2008. He is the recipient of two Writer's Guild Awards and Primetime Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program in 2010 and a small plastic trophy for his participation in a charity mustache-growing contest.
