Stephen Colbert won’t be taking over Late Show for David Letterman until next year, but the farewell tour for his Comedy Central character continues. Last night, he stopped by The Daily Show to let his friend and former colleague Jon Stewart know, in person, about his plans to leave his current gig.
Their banter, as usual, is a treat to watch. And Colbert even came prepared with his own farewell montage highlighting his best moments from his time as a correspondent for The Daily Show. Check it out below:
