Stephen Colbert Debuts His ‘Late Show’ Marquee

It’s not official until they put your name up in lights.

As he gets ready to make his “Late Show” hosting debut, Stephen Colbert now has his brand new “Late Show” marquee lit up for all to see.

Gone is David Letterman’s old “Late Show” sign atop the historic Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City (remember, it was torn down immediately following Dave’s last show?), and in its place is now Colbert’s name, face and slightly revised “Late Show” logo in bright lights.

A fancy marquee isn’t the only thing welcoming the comedian to his new late night gig.

As previously reported on, Colbert unveiled an impressive list of first-week guests who will be visiting the show.

Scarlett Johansson, Elon Musk, Kendrick Lamar, Amy Schumer and Stephen King are a few of the big names set for Colbert’s debut week, while George Clooney and Jeb Bush will help Colbert celebrate his “Late Show” premiere on September 8.
