I have played around with:

\definecolor{comment}{rgb}{0.60, 0.60, 0.53}
\definecolor{background}{rgb}{0.97, 0.97, 1.00}
\definecolor{string}{rgb}{0.863, 0.066, 0.266}
\definecolor{number}{rgb}{0.0, 0.6, 0.6}
\definecolor{variable}{rgb}{0.00, 0.52, 0.70}
  commentstyle=\color{comment} \itshape,
  stringstyle=, %\color{string}
  columns = fullflexible,
  mathescape = true,
