Ho ho ho! David Letterman is officially retired. The former Late Show host was spotted out in New York City on Sunday, Sept. 27, sporting a thick white beard.
The usually clean-shaven 68-year-old was enjoying a casual stroll with his 11-year-old son, Henry. The legendary talk show host, who was on the air for over 33 years, bid farewell to the gig on May 20, passing the torch to comedian Stephen Colbert, whose revamped Late Show premiered earlier this month.
“Thanks for finally proving men can be funny,” Tina Fey joked during Letterman’s star-studded finale. “I’m just glad your show is being given to another white guy,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also quipped.
“I think he’s going to do a wonderful job,” Letterman said of Colbert during his emotional finale. “I wish Stephen and his crew nothing but the greatest success.”
For the TV vet’s first post-Late Show gig, Letterman will journey to India to explore climate change in upcoming National Geographic docu-series Years of Living Dangerously, which is slated to air sometime in 2016.
