Stephen Colbert will go to Washington to interview President Barack Obama for one of his last episodes.
The Colbert Report special episode,“Stephen Colbert Presents: Mr. Colbert Goes to Washington D.C. Ya Later, Legislator: Partisan is Such Sweet Sorrow: A Colbert Victory Lap, ‘014,” will be filmed at George Washington University on December 8. Obama had a cameo appearance on Colbert’s show in 2009, when he ordered General Ray Odierno to shave the host’s head for a broadcast in Baghdad.
The move marks a change of White House policy. In 2010, former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told TIME he would never let Obama do Colbert, and the comedian ran a segment on the president being terrified of appearing on the show.
The Colbert Report‘s final show will take place on December 18; Colbert is leaving to take over CBS’ The Late Show next year.
