Stephen Colbert is prepping himself — and his face — to host the Late Show in a few months. The prep involved getting rid of the beard he grew after leaving The Colbert Report at the end of last year.
In the first promo vid for The Late Show we see Stephen shaving “The Colbeard” beard in stages (the “un-Hitler,” an Amish-inspired look, and “the half-Wolverine.”) before revealing what he refers to as “classic clean Colbert.” You should’ve kept the beard, Stephen. No worries, you have three months to grow it back!
