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.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
