Stephen Colbert is pulling out all the stops for President Donald Trump's address to Congress.

The Late Show will broadcast live after the president's address to the joint session of Congress on Feb. 28.

Guests for the Tuesday telecast include Lisa Kudrow and former White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

The address will mark the president's first chance to outline his agenda in a nationally televised speech.

This will be The Late Show With Stephen Colbert's 14th time airing live — 15, counting Colbert's election-night special on Showtime. Stemming from his long tenure at Comedy Central as host of The Colbert Report, Colbert has been aggressive in his coverage of politics since before the Nov. 8. election, covering both the Republican and Democratic national conventions live, as well as two of the three presidential debates between the now-president and Hillary Clinton.

Trump's early days in office have given Colbert a boost on CBS. Although he continues to fall second to Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon in the ages 18-49 demo, The Late Show has been the most watched show in late night for the last two weeks.
