Political satirist Stephen Colbert comes in at No. 4 in "Extra's" Entertainer of the Year poll.

Surprising? Not really. Since the comedian took his "The Daily Show" persona and created his own Comedy Central show "The Colbert Report" in 2005, his particular slant on today's political scene has been a hit, mixing comedy with politics.

This year has been an especially hilarious one for the bombastic host, in which he has skewered everything from the oil spill, to the environment, Obama birthers, Bill O'Reilly and Congress. Plus, he spearheaded the groundbreaking Restore Sanity and/or Fear rally with his "nemesis," Jon Stewart.

Here are 15 memorable 2010 video moments from Colbert:
