Stephen Colbert debuts first promo of himself on 'The Late Show' -- and it's amazing

Stephen Colbert won’t take over David Letterman’s “The Late Show” until the fall, but we’re already getting our first look at the former “Colbert Report” host on CBS.

Barely two weeks after Letterman’s final “Late Show,”¬†Colbert debuted his first promo for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and it’s hilarious.

The first clip plays off of the internet’s fascination with his beard which has been dubbed the Colbeard.

He spends the majority of the video shaving away at his beard piece by piece, trying to find which style would go viral. 

He went through many different styles, from the “anti-Hitler” (no mustache but a full beard), Amish, and then finally, back to the clean-shaven Colbert we all remember.

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” will debut on CBS on September 8, 2015 at 11:35 p.m.
