Stephen Colbert Teases Launch Of 'Late Show' With Video and Website

(Radio.com) Get ready for the return of Stephen Colbert, world. Fans are getting their first look at what The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will be like as the comedian launches a website and social accounts for his new show.

And of course there's a video. In the nearly six-minute clip, Colbert spends the first four slowly shaving off his beard as he explores possible looks for his new show. Going from the "not Hitler" to Amish to half of a lumberjack, he finally lands on the old, clean-shaven Colbert look.

In the meantime, many whiskers pile up on his hot dog (not a euphemism). Then he dedicates a solid minute to eulogizing his beard to the tune of Green Day's " Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" with the lyrics to "Camptown Races" over them, for legal reasons obviously.
