I guess a product of two Haar distributed unitary matrices is also a Haar distributed unitary matrix. Is there a proof?

Presumably the two matrices are chosen independently.

The product of two unitary matrices is unitary. The distribution is invariant under multiplication on left or right by a unitary matrix. Use uniqueness of Haar measure...
