Stephen Colbert Decides The Fate Of The Colbeard To Prepare For 'The Late Show'

After making his name as the best character actor ever, Stephen Colbert is finally set to take the seat on one of America's most beloved late-night talk shows.

Inheriting the reins from David Letterman, Colbert will be hosting The Late Show from 8 September. But not before he gets rid of that grizzly beard he grew during his time offscreen...

He takes us through several phases of his shaving process, firstly giving himself a "reverse hitler", then goes Amish and finally gives himself a "half Wolverine". But eventually Colbert goes for the classic clean-shaven look he's always been famous for.
