After exactly 35 years David Letterman was forced to hang the boots and give the torch to Stephen Colbert as the new host of “The Late Night Show” because of a sex scandal that really shook one of the longest standing celebrities in the world of show business.

This resulted with Mr. Letterman changing his entire physical appearance including a short hair trim that reveals all of his bald spots and growing a Santaesque beard.

We really dig the beard and it seems like Dave always had hard time saying goodbye to it while he was working:
