Jon Stewart, Elizabeth Warren, John Oliver and Anthony Weiner are among the people appearing during The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s live coverage of the conventions.

CBS announced on Thursday the guest lineup for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s live episodes centered around the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. They include the usual mix of celebrities, journalists and politicians, including Elizabeth Warren, Anthony Weiner, Ron Suskind and Allison Janney. Vulture reports that they will also feature a reunion between Colbert and Jon Stewart during Monday’s episode covering the first night of the RNC, as well as an appearance by fellow Daily Show alum John Oliver the following week.

It’s not been revealed what role Stewart will play in the coverage, which will include an on-site presence in Cleveland, while Colbert remains at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. The host will also cover the events at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia starting July 25.

More from Late Show

Stewart, who serves as an executive producer on The Late Show, previously appeared on the program’s opening episode and in December donning a Donald Trump wig in order to draw attention to the Zadroga Act, which provides health care to 9/11 first responders who obtained illnesses or injuries in the aftermath of the attacks. He also briefly returned to The Daily Show to urge Congress to reauthorize the healthcare bill. Stewart has since mocked Trump at a USO event attended by fellow retired late-night host David Letterman, and makes a cameo in the “Ultimate Edition” of Batman v. Superman. He’s also set to produce several short-form films for HBO that may premiere before the 2016 presidential election.

Meanwhile, Warren will appear later in the week on Thursday, July 21 as Colbert’s first guest. This will mark the third appearance on the show by the Massachusetts senator, who is rumored to be on Hillary Clinton’s VP short list, along with Julian Castro, Tim Kaine and Tom Vilsack. During her last Late Show appearance, the progressive champion passed on endorsing Bernie Sanders, instead opting to publicly back Clinton after she had secured the nomination.

The first week of shows, dubbed “The 2016 Trumpublian Donational Conventrump Starring Donald Trump As the Republican Party” which, “May Contain Traces of Republican,” will also feature such guests as Zoe Saldana, Keegan-Michael Key, Lewis Black, Tony Goldwyn and Billy Eichner.
