President Obama has added another stop on the campaign trail. Comedy Central announced Friday that he's set to visit The Daily Show With Jon Stewart next week.

Though Obama has made five previous appearances with Stewart, this will only be the second time he's been on The Daily Show since taking office in 2009. Obama last appeared during the series' Oct. 2010 week in Washington.

Though information on when the segment would tape was not made available, Obama's appearance is scheduled to air during The Daily Show's Oct. 18 broadcast at 11 p.m. ET.

Obama also recently appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman. Mitt Romney, who has never appeared on The Daily Show, has been more limited in his late night appearances of late -- though wife Ann Romney did recently tape an episode of The Tonight Show.
