I think the beard looks good.

Stephen Colbert has been out of work since December. In that time, he's grown a mighty beard. Colbert is set to take over duties at The Late Show, and by law he can't have a beard while hosting.

The video below takes us on a little journey of the time Stephen spent over the last few months with his beard, as well as various stages of shaving. Ever wanted to see an Amish Stephen Colbert? Watch the video below and be ready for his return on September 8th.
