Those walking past New York City's Ed Sullivan Theater got a slice of comedy thanks to Stephen Colbert's temporary Late Show marquee.

In anticipation of Colbert's debut on the late-night CBS program, a sign was put up to promote Angelo's Pizza, which is located next door to the studio.

Talk about prime ad space! This is after all the marquee location that once announced The Beatles first televised American appearance.

This is just one of many stunts Colbert has pulled off in lead-up to his new hosting gig. Just last week, he hosted a public access show in Monroe, Mich. and interviewed rapper Eminem.
