Last night’s The Late Show with David Letterman made history as the program’s next host, Stephen Colbert, visited for the first time since the announcement was made. Colbert even took an A+ selfie to mark the occasion.
But what really stole the show was the above clip where Stephen tells Dave about his previous run-ins with The Late Show (more on that and talentless girlfriends below) and how he and his writing partner submitted a Christmas-themed Top 10 list back in 1997. Of course he read it in grand fashion. With maybe a little too much production value.
I honestly don’t know if it would be possible for these two to handle the handing of the torch with any more class.
