Stephen Colbert’s live election night special on Showtime has revealed some of its guest list. Jeff Goldblum, Katy Perry, Patton Oswalt, Nick Offerman, Larry Wilmore, Jena Friedman, and Charlamagne Tha God will be joining Colbert at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York as he reacts to the election results that will be pouring in. Previously announced guests include Elle King, Mark Halperin, and John Heilemann of Showtime’s “The Circus,” and political campaign strategist Mark McKinnon.
“Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This Sh*t?” will be airing starting at 11/10c on Showtime; the pay cabler is pitching it as an option for those who want to get the news without actually having to sit through the election coverage on more traditional networks. Colbert and his guests will have free rein to swear, make obscene gestures, or strip down to their socks if they’re so inclined, without fear of network censorship. For those without a Showtime subscription, Colbert’s uncensored monologue will be streamed on Facebook Live via the Showtime Facebook page.
The election night special is produced by the same team behind CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Colbert, Stewart, Chris Licht, and Tom Purcell are the executive producers.
