As Jon Stewart closed out his penultimate week as host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, he revealed that his roster of final guests includes Denis Leary, Louis C.K. and Amy Schumer.

The Trainwreck actress will lead off The Daily Show‘s final week as Monday’s guest, followed by Leary and C.K. on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Leary, a good friend of Stewart’s, and C.K. have previously appeared on The Daily Show, and Schumer was even offered the role as Stewart’s replacement, but ultimately turned down the gig.

“I just pictured all the fittings – all the blazers I would have to wear,” Schumer told Howard Stern. “I was like, ‘I don’t want to do that.’” 

Little else is known about Stewart’s final show, which will take place on Aug. 6, other than its 50-minute duration and that Stewart plans to pay homage to his nearly 20-year hosting gig. “We’re going to have a ball,” Stewart said on Thursday’s show, “and I can’t wait to show my appreciation at all the support and enthusiasm that you guys have given the show all these years.”
