What was Stephen Colbert hiding all these years under his "Colbert Report" character? Apparently, a giant grey beard.

In the first promo for CBS' "Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the host introduces us to his beard, but then decides it's time to get rid of it. Colbert tries on a handful of characters with different facial hair, like "the un-Hitler" 'stache, the half Wolverine and lastly, the fresh-faced, hairless Colbert.

Watch Colbert eat a hot dog with a fork and knife and give his beard a musical goodbye. Follow the show's new Twitter account and Colbr app for more updates. "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" debuts on Sept. 8.
