After catching a view of “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek’s new beard, one listener called up Monday morning wondering if Howard had a desire to some day grow out his scruff in a similar manner.

“It’s weird, you just triggered something in me,” Howard responded. “I don’t remember my dreams all that much, but I had a dream over the weekend where I ran into David Letterman, except he still had his beard but it was neatly trimmed.”

Howard said it’s unlikely he’d ever grow out a retirement beard. But Letterman, conversely, said he’d be buried in his during a 2017 visit to the Stern Show. “Honest to god, I got so tired of shaving every day,” he explained.

Trebek, meanwhile, discussed what went into his memorable decision to shave off the iconic mustache that preceded his new beard in his 2015 visit to the Stern Show studio. Hear a clip from that discussion (below).
