Stephen Colbert Shaves His Beard to Prep for 'The Late Show' (Kind Of): Watch
Stephen Colbert is getting ready for his new gig on The Late Show -- three months early.
In this just-released teaser video, Colbert talks about what life has been like since the end of The Colbert Report -- most notably, he's grown an impressive beard with its own name: The Colbeard. Colbert goes through various stages of beardedness in his quest to be clean-shaven for CBS (apparently Tom Selleck's mustache has a non-compete clause).
The video concludes with an apt ode to his former facial hair in the form of "Camptown Races" sung to the tune of Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" (licensing is expensive!) -- watch the full video below:
