May 24 (UPI) -- David Letterman returned to Late Night as a special guest Wednesday where the former host discussed having a long beard, Vice President Mike Pence and Seth Meyers' version of the show.
Letterman, who originally hosted Late Night for 11 seasons until his exit in 1993, explained to Meyers that he sometimes forgets that he has a long beard.
The comedian shared a story about how a shop owner was once checking to make sure all of Letterman's $20 bills were real with a marker.
"I asked him, 'Do I look like the kind of guy who would start passing the counterfeit [bills]?' And then I realize, 'Oh yeah, I do,'" Letterman joked.
"I tell you, after watching the opening of your show, there would be no point in doing it, because you have it covered," Letterman said before he launched into what he thinks about Pence.
"This is what troubles me about Mike Pence. He's from Indiana. He looks like the guy at a funeral home who would try to sell you the most expensive casket," he said.
As Letterman's time came to a close, the 71-year-old continued to praise Meyers' version of Late Night.
"Your show is nothing like my show. My show was lumpy and viscous. And your show is crisp and smart and contemporary," Letterman said before mentioning how he wishes Meyers would have changed the name of Late Night to The Tomorrow Show.
"I thought about it, but it meant a lot to me to be the host of Late Night," Meyers replied.
Letterman is currently the host of a Netflix interview series titled My Guest Needs No Introduction. The program has featured guests such as George Clooney, former President Barack Obama, Jay-Z, Tina Fey and Howard Stern.
