Stephen Colbert's first Late Show guest: Host makes announcement on Twitter

Posted on


When Stephen Colbert makes his Late Show debut, his first guest will be one of the biggest stars in the world. No pressure.

“George Clooney will be my first-ever #LSSC guest on September 8th!” Colbert tweeted early Friday morning. “Could one of you let him know?”

The host made his announcement the morning after an appearance on Jon Stewart’s final Daily Show, earnestly thanking him on behalf of himself and the rest of Stewart’s correspondents for what he’d done for their careers: “We owe you, because we learned from you.”
