Stephen Colbert Paid Tribute to Letterman Like Only Stephen Colbert Can

He is The Late Show, and so can we.

Things have been moving pretty quickly since David Letterman announced his retirement last week, and though we’re excited about Stephen Colbert as his replacement, it’s sad to see Letterman go. No one feels this bittersweet emotion more than Stephen Colbert, and no one can express it quite like him, either.

If he drops the politics and keeps the goofball hilarity like he did for this tribute, it’s going to be a tough choice between him and Jimmy Fallon. If you don’t already own a DVR, you’re going to want one now. (Also, if you don’t already own a DVR, what’s it like living in the 1700s?)

Dan is many things, including a game developer, animator, martial artist, and at least semi-professional pancake chef. He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
