Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” announced tonight that he will interview President Barack Obama during a special episode of the show filmed at the George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium on Monday, Dec. 8.
Students had the opportunity to register for free tickets through a lottery system on Wednesday and Thursday. Registration has now closed. Individuals will be notified before Monday if they won seats to the taping.
Lisner Auditorium hosted Mr. Colbert in 2007, when the satirist discussed his life, career and book, “I Am America (And So Can You!),” with NBC’s Tim Russert.
“Washington has been the Report’s second home, and I will be returning on Monday to show it the same affection the British did in 1812,” Mr. Colbert said.
