Stephen Colbert’s Comedy Central character is going out on a high. The comedian, whose “Colbert Report” ends Dec. 18 as he transitions to taking over CBS’s “Late Show” next year, announced that President Obama will be among his final guests, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“I am so honored to be sitting down with the man who sat down with Bill O’Reilly,” Colbert said on his Thursday show, the story reports. The sit-down will take place Dec. 8 when Colbert takes the show on the road to Washington, D.C.
This will be Obama’s third appearance on the show; his last was in 2009, THR reports.
