Stephen Colbert’s New Video Shows Exactly Why We Need Him Back on Air Immediately


Stephen Colbert emerged from darkness today to give fans a peek into what life’s been like since leaving Comedy Central back in December. The result is a six-minute video in which he bids a wonderfully unhinged farewell to his facial hair, all while shedding the remains of it over a hot dog.

“CBS is making me shave it off because Tom Selleck’s mustache has a non-compete clause,” Colbert explains. “Don’t get me wrong, Tom’s a great guy. His mustache? Such a bitch!”

It might be best for CBS to bump up his September debut on The Late Show. The man clearly needs us, just as much as we need him.
